Game watched: Tottenham 2-2 Man Utd
Tottenham have been in the Premier League since it began in 1992-93. During this time, White Hart Lane has had significant developments to this stadium, particularly the North and South stands being re-built in the 1990s. Until the last 2 seasons, United received a decent 3,000 ticket allocation (with the exception of 1994-95 and 1997-98 seasons when building work meant a reduced stadium capacity) but this has now been reduced to less than 2,000 due to United fans ‘persistently standing.’ Capacity at White Hart Lane is currently just over 36,000 which is seen as too low by a club of its size and support. The 2 options the club had been looking at had been to re-locate to the new Olympic Games stadium, or to build a new stadium on open land right next to White Hart Lane. With West Ham seemingly being given the Olympic Stadium despite opposition from Tottenham, it looks like the new White Hart Lane stadium is the way forward, with building due to commence in 2013.
Going to Spurs by car, if you want to park near the stadium it is best advised to park at least a mile away from there, otherwise you're looking at up to £15 car parking and shocking traffic after the match. The nearest tube station is Seven Sisters which is a good 20 minute walk away. There is also an overground train station, White Hart Lane, about 5 minutes walk from the stadium. Prices for tickets and food at White Hart Lane are typical of top flight London clubs these days.
