Detailed designs revealed for Tottenham’s new £400m stadium

By Tom Walker    24 Sep 2015
The stadium will be designed by sports architects Populous

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club (Spurs) has revealed further details of the transformation of its White Hart Lane stadium into a 61,000 multi-purpose stadium – set to become the largest club stadium in London.

Plans released yesterday show the £400m project will include four asymmetrical stands, a stadium wrapped in a sculptured mesh and a glass facade to the new home end.

There will also be special design features to allow Spurs to host two National Football League (NFL) games each season under a 10-year partnership signed with the NFL in July.

A retractable grass field, used by Spurs for its home games, will hide underneath it an artificial surface – which will be used to host the NFL games. The artificial playing surface will also be capable of hosting other sporting, entertainment and community events.

Plans also show that the stadium will have three tunnels, one for football and one each for the NFL home and away sides.

The asymmetrical stands will allow supporters to be closer to the pitch than at any other comparably sized stadium, while the home 'kop' stand will be the largest in the country, holding 17,000 fans.

Spurs are also planning to establish an entertainment district around the stadium, with plans in place for a 180-room hotel, an extreme sports centre, a “Sky Walk” adrenaline attraction on the roof of the stadium and a “Tottenham Experience” – a permanent visitor attraction and museum charting the club’s history.

There will also be 579 new homes, a new community health centre and improved street infrastructure to better deal with crowd management issues.

Sports architects Populous have been appointed to design the stadium, the hotel and the visitor attractions, while Allies & Morrison will be responsible for the design of the new homes. Donald Insall Associates have been named as heritage architects.

Construction work has already begun on preparation works and the stadium is set to open in time for the 2018-19 season.

When complete, the stadium capacity will surpass that of Spurs’ fierce north London rival Arsenal FC, which plays at the 60,4432-capacity Emirates Stadium.

To allow the works to take place, Spurs will have to relocate away from White Hart Lane for the duration one season (2017-18). The club is currently in talks over a possible move to Wembley Stadium for the year.

Spanning over 130 acres, the development is expected to create around 3,500 jobs and provide the local economy with an annual boost of £293m.
