Construction firm begins demolition of football stadium



Tottenham Hotspur Football Club has formally handed over the keys to its stadium to construction contractor Mace.

The football club played its last game at White Hart Lane on 14th May, ahead of the development of a new £400m stadium.

Mace has now taken on full responsibility for the stadium and will commence a 12-week deconstruction of White Hart Lane.

“Today marks yet another historic milestone in our continued progress to deliver our world-class new stadium,” said Daniel Levy, chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

“However, it is also a sombre occasion upon which the club formally hands over its home of 118 years – one filled with so many special memories for us.”

Mace will begin with the demolition of the North Stand, before moving towards the South and the Spurs Megastore.

Valuable items from within the stadium have been retained and placed in storage for auction.

Tottenham’s new stadium was given final approval by former Mayor of London Boris Johnson in February last year.

The plans will see a new 61,000-seater stadium built on the site of the current ground and the creation of 585 new homes.
