BBC Sport - White Hart Lane: Tottenham immediately begin stadium redevelopment
No time wasted ripping up White Hart Lane
- From the section Football
Redevelopment of White Hart Lane starts less than 24 hours after Tottenham said an emotional farewell to their home of the past 118 years with a 2-1 win over Manchester United.
They plan to have a new 61,000-seater stadium, built on the same site, ready for the 2018-19 season.
In the meantime, the club will play home games at Wembley, which they have used in the Champions League and Europa League this season.
The new stadium is expected to cost £750m but will create about 3,500 jobs in the area when it is finished, according to the club.
