Now, alongside West Ham – who are set to move into their Olympic Stadium after next season – Spurs are taking the next step to close the gap on those above them. Having seen North London neighbours Arsenal profit from the making of the Emirates in 2006, and also clubs like Manchester City with the Etihad, they finally look to have got the green light to make the club one of the most attractive sides in English football.
The reported £400 million pound build, which will include an area of 60,000 square feet for commercial development, a medical centre, as well as a gym and fitness centre, alongside an increase in residential development, is scheduled to hopefully be ready by the 2018/19 campaign. The stadium also has increased number of Sports Hospitality suites that allow fans to enjoy the game in the utmost comfort.

So what do Spurs fans make of it? Well, a few took to Twitter and here’s the best of the reactions.
