Only Barcelona and PSG are earning more money than Spurs right now in one key area

Tottenham decided to demolish the old White Hart Lane to build a brand new 62,850-capacity stadium in an effort to close the financial gap with Europe’s biggest clubs.

Nearly five years on from the move, it is fair to say that the club have achieved that goal, with the Lilywhites regularly generating high profits.

Not only is the stadium a revenue-generating machine on each matchday, mainly due to the number of fans that can be served by the foot and drink stalls, but it also has another unique advantage.
