Tottenham have revealed that their application to increase the capacity at their brand new stadium has been accepted by Haringey Council.
The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will now welcome an extra 152 supporters next season with the capacity jumping from 62,062 to 62,214.
Spurs revealed that they submitted a ‘detailed review of the stadium seating bowl’ to the local council during the summer in conjunction with building control, which allowed the north London club to add the additional seats in the north and south stands.

Spurs only opened their state-of-the-art home back in April but have already host a Champions League semi-final there along with a number of Premier League games last season.
The new White Hart Lane remains the biggest Premier League stadium in London with Wembley the only other arena besting it in terms of crowd capacity.
Last season’s biggest attendance at Spurs’ new ground was 60,243 when Mauricio Pochettino’s men fell to a 1-0 defeat against Ajax in the Champions League semi-final first leg.
The figure fell just 17 short of Arsenal’s full capacity at the Emirates.
