The Athletic have revealed that Tottenham are now able to generate around £6m for every home game at their stadium.
The report analyses the possibility of Tottenham being bought from ENIC and discusses the pros and cons that would be in play for potential investors.
It is revealed that the Lilywhites were estimated to be valued at just £80m when ENIC purchased the club from Alan Sugar at the start of the millennium.
The University of Liverpool’s football finance expert Kieran Maguire gave Tottenham the top spot in his most recent survey of Premier League club valuations at £2.7 billion, the highest of any Premier League club, while US business magazine Forbes have reportedly assigned the club a value of £1.7 billion.
The Athletic reveal that Tottenham’s new £1.2-billion stadium would be the biggest attraction for any new investor and that it is likely to be at the heart of Levy’s pitch.
The stadium reportedly generates a figure of roughly £6m for every one of Spurs’ home games, while there is also additional money to be brought in from the NFL matches, concerts and other events that are held at the venue.

While some Spurs fans might feel that they would have rather stayed at White Hart Lane and seen the amount spent on the stadium invested into the first-team, I believe that is a short-sighted view.
What the new stadium does is enable us to compete with the big boys across Europe over the long term in a sustainable manner.
Increasing our revenue is the only way Spurs complete with the biggest clubs in the world in the Financial Fair Play era, even if we have owners who are willing to invest their own money into the club.
