Daniel Levy has said that Tottenham Hotspur have many plans in the pipeline that will benefit the local community, while also speaking about the club’s quest for success.
Apart from building a state-of-the-art 62,850-capacity stadium, Spurs are also helping to regenerate the local area in other ways, having been granted permission to build a new six-storey complex of homes and a cinema opposite their home ground.
Without revealing what the club’s future plans are, Levy hinted that the club could invest a lot more in the area in the years to come.
He told Premier League Productions (as shown on Sky Sports’ Premier League TV channel (08/02/23 – 21:00) and relayed by Football.London): “There’s definitely lots more to come, some of which I cannot talk about.
“But what is in the public domain is we have planning permission for a hotel that we definitely intend to build over the coming years, a number of residential homes and I think you will see a lot of other things that will come out over the next 12-14 months.”
The Spurs chairman has come under criticism from some sections of the fanbase for a lack of investment in the squad, but he insisted that he is determined to deliver trophies and that the club are now in a better position to improve the team, having increased their revenue streams.
The 61-year-old said: “I think the club is in a very good position. Everything we have done is now to increase our revenues so that we can put back into the team and we need to continue to improve the team.
“I think if you own a football club you want to win. It’s easier said than done. We have been in the Champions League a number of times but we need to regularly be there and we now need to win a trophy.”
Levy also admitted that he was involved in every little detail of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. He said about the club’s new home ground: “I was involved in absolutely everything. This was my home, I was building a home.”

For a self-sustaining club like Spurs, who do not have owners who pump money into the club, the only way for us to compete over the long term with the biggest sides in Europe, is to increase our revenue.
That is why the new stadium was so important, even if it arguably set us back a few years when it comes to building a team who can compete on the pitch.
