Tottenham Hotspur are exploring the possibility of building a new stadium on the trading estate that is adjacent to White Hart Lane. The Wingate estate is to the north of the ground, behind Paxton Road and between the High Road and Worcester Avenue. The club has identified it as an option, as they seek to increase capacity and, in turn, revenue streams.

Tottenham’s other option is to stay put and expand White Hart Lane, which can presently hold 36,310 fans. The global credit crunch has made fundraising for major capital projects difficult and it may turn out to be more viable to develop the existing stadium. There is a desire for at least another 15,000 seats, although expansion plans are complicated because the ground is boxed in on all sides.

If Tottenham made the short hop to Wingate – having first been granted planning permission and reached agreement with the businesses there – they could seek to build a 55-60,000 seat stadium.
