Interesting Facts about White Hart Lane

White Hart Lane, often referred to simply as "the Lane", is located in Tottenham, London. It was opened on September 4th, 1899. Today, after numerous renovations, the stadium has a capacity of 30,000; however, historically, before seating became popular, it could fit over 70,000 people. The highest ever attendance in the stadium has been 75,038, at a match against Sunderland in March 1938. Besides football matches, White Hart Lane has been used for various events: in the past, it hosted England international matches, it occasionally hosts England's Under 21's international games, in the 1990s it hosted American football matches, and it has also been used for boxing.

The History of White Hart Lane

Originally, the stadium was a disused brewery nursery, which was renovated into a football pitch when Tottenham Hotspur moved into it in 1899. At the beginning of the 20th century, it underwent redevelopment which turned it into a stadium that could seat 16,000 people. Later, the famous bronze fighting cock (the team's mascot) was erected on the roof of the stadium's West Stand. Floodlights were introduced to the stadium in 1953. Throughout the next decades, the stadium underwent numerous renovations, including the erection of perimeter fencing (and then its removal, following the Hillsborough disaster); replacement of the West Stand; completion of the South Stand, the introduction of a Jumbotron screen and more. Around the millennium, after having been Tottenham's home field for more than a hundred years, the need arose for moving the team to another stadium, as White Hart Lane's capacity failed to meet needs. Several existing stadiums and arenas were considered, but negotiations fell through. Finally, Tottenham decided to go through with the Northumberland Development Project, which includes building a new stadium for the team adjacent to White Hart Lane.
