"It Has Nothing to Do With Arsenal" - Tottenham Chairman Talks New Stadium Capacity

tottenham new stadium capacity has nothing to do with arsenal

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has stated that the club's decision over new stadium capacity has nothing to do with Arsenal.

The North London side waved goodbye to the old White Hart Lane in May 2017 and made Wembley their temporary home while construction work was ongoing.

Spurs after a number of launch postponements will now officially open their ground when they face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Wednesday night (today).

The stadium has a capacity of 62 062 - just 1800 seats more than that of their rivals, Arsenal, and while some guessed it was in a bid to surpass their neighbours, their chairman has said that their choice had nothing to do with rivalry.

"It's nothing to do with Arsenal," Levy said.

"We wanted to build a stadium at a minimum capacity of 60,000 and we managed to get it to 62,000. It was nothing to do with Arsenal.

“Over the last 18 years this club has definitely moved forward.

“Any club has its ups and downs but I hope we have created the infrastructure here to become one of the biggest clubs in the world.”

Arsenal fans will be hoping to see Mauricio Pochettino's side lose their first game at the New White Hart Lane.

That will provide them a nice avenue for banter and widen the Gunners' chances of finishing third in the Premier League.

Unai Emery's men currently sit above Spurs and Manchester United with a two-point difference.
