Tottenham fans will be eagerly awaiting their brand new 62,000 seat stadium, with an opening date surely not far into the horizon.

However, those attending games may have to pay an extra 20p on top of any purchase at the stadium should an NHS hospital succeed in their appeal, according to the Telegraph.

Local North Middlesex University Hospital finished last year with a deficit of £29 million.

They have since considered appealing to their nearest Premier League side, Tottenham Hotspur for assistance.

They believe an extra small tax on purchases in the new stadium may ease their financial woes.

The scheme could raise around £300,000 a year.

The proposal has not yet been submitted to Spurs, but includes a 20p charge on over 50,000 transactions on each of the 34 home matches of the year.

The trust already have a relationship with the Spurs Foundation, but not a corporate relationship with Tottenham as of yet.

Would you be happy to pay such a charge to help out the local hospital?


Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Have no problem paying an extra 20p for a hospital, providing it gets to the hospital.
    Its a sad state of affairs that we need charity for any hospitals but its a simple reality under this Tory govt.
    Until such times as we get a decent govt in power we may have have to chip in for things like this and think its great of Spurs to be organizing such fundraising.

    • Remember which government got us into this mess your beloved labour. Why do all people in socialist countries want to escape, if you want to find out vote for Cornyn and suffer.
