The letter details an increase of just 98 seats which for most seems a comical amount however it appears this could be an ongoing process as the stadium takes shape with additional seating being available and the club will apply at different stages.

Despite denials by the club many fans have speculated for some time when designing the new stadium making sure the capacity was slightly more than North London rivals Arsenal was a ‘must have’ and since announcing this stadiums capacity Chelsea also hinted they would be redeveloping their ground and it would, again, have a slightly higher capacity.  However with these small changes it appears Spurs are once again looking to make sure they have the highest capacity club stadium in London!

Another major talking point about the new stadium has also been the naming rights.  Fans will of course forever refer to the ground as White Hart Lane however naming rights appears to be inevitable as the club look to minimise the financial exposure.

The big rumour in America right now is that a major NFL sponsor is in negotiations following Daniel Levy closing the 10 year NFL deal to host American Football at the ground.  The figures being talked about would make it the most lucrative stadium deal in Premier League history with Spurs looking for between £25m-£35m per season for 10 years.
