White Hart Lane is an all-seater football stadium in Tottenham, England. Built in
1899, It is the home  of  Tottenham Hotspur and, after  numerous   renovations,
the stadium has a capacity of 36,310.

Along with housing Tottenham, the stadium has also been selected for England
national  football matches  and also  England under-21 football matches,  White
Hart Lane held capacity  records in the early  1960’s with numbers entering the
70,000s but as seating increased in popularity, the stadium has leveled out to
a modest number in  relation to other premier league clubs,  The record atten-
dance remains  an  FA Cup tie on the 5th March  1938 against Sunderland with
the attendance being recorded at 75,038.

Plans are afoot for Tottenham Hotspur to move to a new stadium with an esti-
mated capacity of 60,000, with the new stadium being built on the current site
instead of relocating from the borough of Haringey.



Tottenham Hotspur, then known as The Hotspur Football club, moved to White
Hart  Lane in 1899,  renovating it from a disused nursery owned by the  brewer
chain Charrington, with the help of local groundsman, John Over, into a usable
football  pitch.  The first game at  White  Hart Lane  resulted  in a 4-1  home win
against Notts County  with around 5,000  supporters attending and witnessing
the first  game  and first  victory at the new ground, although  referred to at the
time as either High Road ground or White Hart grounds.

White Hart Lane underwent a a huge redevelopement in the early 20th century
with  predominant stadium  developer,  Archibald  Leitch,  designing  a  mainly
square  stadium  seating   5,300  also  incorporating  a  standing   paddock  for
another  700  fans  along with the  world-famous  cockerel being placed  on the
mock-tudor apex at the end of the 1909-1910 season. Redevelopments  conti-
nued in  the 1910’s,  with  the wooden eastern stand replaced with an  enlarged
concrete stadium, vastly increasing the stadium capacity to over 50,000, The
Ground continued to be renovated and in 1925, thanks to prize money from the
FA Cup triumph of 1921, both the Paxton Road stand  and Park land Stand were
enlarged and covered from the elements in the majority.

The pitch  was overlooked by a copper fighting cock  (the club mascot) that still
keeps  an  eye on  proceedings  from the  roof  of the  West  Stand. In the  1930’s,
Football  had an  astoundingly popular following, and  despite Tottenham’s lack
of  success,  at the time,  75,038  spectators  squeezed  into  White  Hart Lane in
March  1938  to see  Spurs  play Sunderland in the  FA  Cup. 1953 saw the intro-
duction of  floodlights, which  were  renovated again in the 1970s  and steadily
upgraded  with new  technology  since. By  this  stage,  Tottenham  were  firmly
established  as  one of England’s  top  clubs  and  attracted  some  of the highest
attendances  in  the country on a  regular basis  and   between  1908  and 1972,
White Hart Lane was one of very few British football grounds that featured no
advertising hoardings at all.

The  West  Stand  was again renovated in the  early 1980s however the project
was   poorly  managed  and   the  stand  took over  15  months  of  work  to  be
complete with cost overruns  having  severe financial implications.  This  West
Stand  is  parallel  with  Tottenham  High  Road  and  is  connected  to it by  Bill
Nicholson Way.

The early 1990s saw the completion of the South Stand (on Park Lane) and the
introduction of the first Jumbotron video screen, of which there are now two,
one above each penalty area. The renovation of the Members’ (North) Stand
which is reached via Paxton Road was completed in 1998, leaving the ground
in its present form. At the turn of the millenium, after falling behind in stadium
capacity, talks began over the future of White Hart Lane and Tottenham Hot-
spur’s home. Over the years, many stadium designs and ideas were rumoured
in the media with most recently a move to Wembley Stadium was ruled out by
the  club,  as  was  talk of   moving to the  future  stadium  of  the 2012  Olympic

Structure and facilities


The outer White Hart Lane framed is designed in a square shape, with the inner
seating tiers having a more rounded-square shape maximise to amount of seats
possible  with the structure. The cockerel is a placed upon the West Stand,  with
The West Stand located on Tottenham High Road, the East Stand being on Wor-
cester Avenue, The North Stand on  Paxton  Road and  the South Stand on Park

Park  Lane  and  Paxton are adopted  as stand names by  the fans when  chanting
during matches, with the East stand referred to as The Shelf side, but officially
the names of the stand are their compass locations.

The  pitch  is  maintained by  Stadium  Grow  Lighting,  a  series of  heated  lights
which  maintain  the  grass  quality  and also allows for  the grass to  grow at  all
times  of the year  and all in all  seasons, The SGL system controls all  aspects of
the pitch when in use, in terms of variables such as water intake, heat allowance
light allowance and other aspects which decrease the quality of a football pitch.
The  pitch  is  available  for  hire when  not  in  matchday  use, with  full  premier
league officials with even Jumbotron use, hoarding advertising and dvd-quality
recording of the  match in  question along with the executive suites being  avai-
lable for wedding, birthdays and other functions.


It  was  announced  on the  30th  October  2008  that  Tottenham  are  going  to
develop  on the  current site and also to the north  where  they have purchased
land, creating a 60,000-seater stadium. The new area will include leisure facili-
ties, shops, housing,  a club museum,  public space and also a new base for  the
Tottenham Hotspur Foundation. There will be public consultations with a view
to applying for planning permission in 2009.
