Tottenham Hotspur have revealed that they further plan to increase the capacity of the new stadium.

The state of the art venue officially opened when Crystal Palace were the visitors to North London in the Premier League back in April with a capacity of 62,062.
The club have confirmed that they are now in dialogue with architects to identify where the additional seats can be installed with a view to increasing the capacity to 62,303.
A planning application has already been submitted to Haringey Council and if successful, they will make further season tickets available to fans.
The new stadium has already hosted American Football with two NFL matches having taken place in N17 over consecutive Sundays in October and there has already been arrangements made for rugby union and rugby league to take place at Spurs’ home.
After suffering a delay of over a year, the stadium is said to have cost Spurs £1billion to build (The Sun).
A statement on the official Spurs site read: “The Club is pleased to confirm that we have submitted an application to Haringey Council to increase the official capacity of our stadium to 62,303.
“In the event that this application is successful, we shall be offering new seats as Season Tickets.
”We are now inviting fans to register their interest for a new Season Ticket, the cost of which will be calculated on a pro-rata basis based on the remaining 2019/20 home Premier League matches it is applicable for.
“Applications for new Season Tickets are open to all supporters who have registered an e-ticketing account with us. Priority will be given to One Hotspur + Members at the top of the waiting list before applications from other Members and non-Members are considered.
”Extensive work continues to be undertaken with our architects to identify areas within the stadium where additional seating could be installed – a further application for an increase in capacity will be made in due course.”
