Levy: New stadium will be a 'game changer' for Tottenham

Daniel Levy

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy is clear over how beneficial he feels a new stadium will be for the club.

Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy explained on the club’s official Facebook page that he feels the club’s new stadium will be a ‘game changer’ for the club.

Spurs are ploughing ahead with plans to move into a bigger ground at White Hart Lane and Levy has painted a clear picture over how beneficial he feels the new ground will be once it’s been completed, calling it a priority.

“To be one of the most successful clubs in Europe. The new stadium will be a game changer for us as it will create revenues that we can invest in the First Team and deliver success on the pitch - so that is a priority for us,” he said.

A bigger stadium will increase the club’s revenue streams in a number of ways. The gate receipts will increase and the new stadium will create different advertising and corporate opportunities for Tottenham to take advantage of.

Mauricio Pochettino should be in an even better position to go after big name players for his first team and it will be interesting to see how freely he is backed in the transfer market to make squad additions.

The potential problem that Tottenham have is one that plagued Arsenal for a number of years after they had built the Emirates Stadium.

The costs involved in building a new ground could put the brakes on Pochettino splashing the cash with any debts accumulated as a result of the stadium needing to be repaid.

Arsene Wenger was under huge pressure to spend money at the Gunners and that same pressure will apply itself to Pochettino.
