Buchler on ground talk

Posted on 6 March 2001  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Executive vice-chairman David Buchler has responded to Monday's newspaper reports, which suggested he is investigating the possibility of relocating.

The reports varied wildly, one linking us with a move to Picketts Lock and, on the other extreme, one hinted at a ground-share with Arsenal.

Buchler did confirm during an interview with the official site that an increase in capacity would be looked into as the club aim to satisfy the demand for tickets.

"The major problem is how we can accommodate our entire support," said Buchler. For some games we could sell double the amount of tickets available. At the moment we can fill the ground without any trouble and we are just looking at ways of increasing the capacity.

"The suggestion of moving is a five to 10 year thing. At the moment we have nothing up our sleeves at all.

"We will look at all the operations as well as the ground. We'll think about what improvements can be made, how to make them and whether, in the long term, the club needs to consider a purpose-built stadium which will have a better chance of housing all the supporters who can't come to the matches because the ground is full."
