Delayed stadium plans

Delayed stadium plans

Financially, missing out on the top-four could prove the most costly of all for the residents of White Hart Lane. Purely qualifying for the group stages now leaves clubs £7.3 million better-off and coming so close could bring tears to the eyes of Daniel Levy. Entry to the last 16 of the Champions League could add a further £3 million to Spurs, while quarterfinalists receive £3.3 million – something that Tottenham achieved with their quarter-final bout with Real Madrid in 2011. The longed-for new stadium at Spurs could be further delayed if the funds dry up, therefore the agonising wait may continue for the stadium of Spurs fans’ dreams.
