Tottenham Hotspur played their final home game at the iconic White Hart Lane. Now we look at what’s in store next for the North London club.
The final game at the Lane has been played. What’s next?
After the game against Manchester United Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy has formally handed over the keys of the stadium to the contractors Mace and DM. Mace will now dismantle the stadium one step at a time and it is hopefully going to be finished by the end of September this year.

Will the Spurs fans get a piece of the Lane?
The Spurs board has offered the season ticket holders a chance to buy their seats at a price of 50 pounds each. Spurs will also dismantle the pitch as they consider it an “essential memorabilia”.
Where will be the new home ground for Spurs?
The new home ground for Spurs is being built by Mace just beside White Hart Lane. It will have a seating capacity of 61,000 people. And once finished it will be the largest capacity stadium in London. The stadium is also slated to have a microbrewery of its own.
