High court challenge of Spurs' stadium plans means club may spend season away from home
POSTED 10 Sep 2014 . BY Tom Anstey
Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur may be forced to play a season away from home thanks to a legal wrangle over the club’s new stadium development.

Plans for the £400m (US$644m, €498m) 58,000-seat stadium, being built next to Tottenham’s current home of White Hart Lane, have been challenged by landowners at the High Court because of a compulsory purchase order of land being approved in July.

"The club has revised its construction programme in order to take the shortest possible time to construct," said a statement issued by the club earlier today (10 September).

"This now therefore involves the club moving away from the Lane during construction for a period of one season, to start at the beginning of a season in order to comply with Premier League rules.”

The club went on to say it was “undertaking due diligence on alternative stadium options," with Milton Keynes thought to be a likely temporary venue for Spurs after representatives visited the 32,000-seat Stadium mk for the Capital One Cup clash between MK Dons and Manchester United. Other options include rotating between Wembley, the Olympic Stadium and Stadium mk, depending on the fixture.

Earlier this week, Queens Park Rangers football club encountered similar problems, with a local car dealership refusing to move in order to make way for the new stadium.

For the Tottenham development the club says Archway Sheet Metal Works and the Josif Family have challenged the decision which will now go to the High Court meaning for the 2017-2018 season at least, the club will be without a home.
