Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have had permission from Haringey Council to further increase the capacity of the new stadium.
The stadium capacity will now increase from 62,062 to 62,214 which is a result of a detailed review of the stadium bowl since the end of last season with additional seats added to areas in the North and South stands.
The original stadium capacity was increased from 61,461 to 61,559 under a non-material amendment and further onto the current capacity as a result of detailed stadium refinement to the seating bowl.
It was discovered that a minor design change to the south stand gangways and a reassessment of the sightlines of the seats located behind the giant screens in the North Stand upper tier have contributed to the additional seats.
The capacity increase further extends Tottenham’s bragging rights as the second largest club ground in England behind Old Trafford (BBC).
While it may only be a less than a couple of hundred seats which will be added, it will no doubt make a big difference to the club’s revenue figures when you consider ticket sales along with food and drink consumption over the course of aseason.
