Passionate About Tottenham
What the new stadium means for our local community
A STADIUM EVENTS AND IMPACT GUIDE
The new stadium will have a capacity of just over 62,000. It is a multi-purpose sports, leisure and entertainment destination hosting Tottenham Hotspur home matches alongside a minimum of two NFL matches per year and a number of other events and concerts.
Naturally, the stadium’s increased capacity will result in more people travelling to the area on event and match days. If any additional information is required, you will find links to further areas of support on this page.
The Club will host over 20 home matches at the new stadium during the 2018/19 season. A full list of fixtures and events can be viewed.
For local residents and businesses
The Club has been carefully planning how we manage the operation of the new stadium and working closely with the London Borough of Haringey, London Borough of Enfield, Transport for London, train operators, the Met Police and other stakeholders.
An easy to read guide has been created to help local residents, business owners and interested stadium visitors learn about these plans. Key topics include local traffic diversions, controlled parking zones, travel routes and public transport plans.
If you cannot access the guide below, you can read, download and print the booklet.
Delivering for the local community
Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium development scheme is widely acknowledged as the catalyst for the regeneration of North Tottenham, creating a new sports, leisure and entertainment destination for London.
It will become a hive of activity 365 days a year, with a new museum, an innovative Skywalk, 21st century retail experiences, first-class conference and banqueting and high-quality leisure facilities including restaurants and a hotel – and will attract in excess of two million visitors per year.
Furthermore, the Club has created 1,697 new jobs for local people as a direct result of its ongoing new stadium development scheme and sport-led regeneration of the area. Jobs have been delivered across a range of industries, including retail, education, construction, hospitality, IT and security, with all going to local people.
Once complete, the stadium development scheme will have created 3,500 new jobs and pump £293 million into the local economy each year – almost double the impact of our previous stadium.
As part of the wider scheme, the Club has to date already delivered:
• The London Academy of Excellence Tottenham – a new state-funded Sixth Form, financially supported by the Club and delivered in partnership with Highgate School, bringing expertise and first-class teaching from eight further top independent schools, giving the area’s brightest students the best possible access to leading Universities
• A new 78,000 square foot Sainsbury’s store at Northumberland Park – employing 280 colleagues from the local area
• The Cannon Road Development - 100% affordable, 222 new homes and the new Brook House Primary School on the site of an old rubber factory
• Berland Court – An affordable housing development nearby Northumberland Park rail station, incorporating the relocation of a Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Hall and a new Club merchandise store
The Northumberland Development Project represents an investment of hundreds of millions of pounds into Tottenham.
Not only will we be ensuring there will be improved access to jobs for local people, our investment in the area will enable and encourage local businesses to grow.
The Club currently works with a number of local businesses and organisations including local cheesemongers, breweries, drinks makers and others. As we move towards the opening of our new stadium, we shall look to expand on these relationships and collaborations.
The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation
The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has a long established, productive and valued partnership with its local communities where there are significant socio-economic challenges alongside aspirations, potential, talent and opportunity to create, deliver and sustain positive change.
The Foundation delivers innovative programmes with the aim of:
• Improving achievement
• Building community cohesion
• Promoting healthy lifestyles
• Supporting people with disabilities
The work of The Foundation and its supporters directly touches the lives of people across North London every day, providing education and employment pathways to create life-changing opportunities for children, groups and individuals within our communities.
The development of the stadium is allowing the Foundation to significantly expand its work and impact and they have already moved into new offices within the restored Percy House, giving the Foundation a presence on the High Road for the first time.
Percy House is now a major community enterprise, employment and skills hub located at the heart of North Tottenham and the Foundation will deliver 95,000 hours of community and sports programmes to those living in the Club’s local area.
In 2013, the Club and its Foundation formed a tripartite partnership with the Council and the Department for Work and Pensions to ensure as many jobs as possible emerging from the development would go to local residents.
The partnership engages with employers to ensure job vacancies are open to local people and actively works with individuals across the community to provide help with CVs, support the application process and provide access to training and employment opportunities.
In addition, thousands of other employment opportunities which were made available to local jobs fairs and other activities led and hosted by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
As part of our continued aim to deliver employment opportunities on the site of our new stadium development and to drive local employment, the Club will be holding a series of jobs fairs including in construction, as well as continuing to work with local employers and authorities.
