Designs for the new home of the Club have been developed by KSS, leaders in stadia design.

Commenting on the release of the images, Club Chairman Daniel Levy said:

"The brief I gave the architects was to design an iconic stadium that would be one of the best in Europe. My over-riding priority is to re-create the terrific atmosphere we have at the current stadium, within a world class stadium that offers state-of -the-art facilities.

"This means designing a stadium which has supporters as close as possible to the field of play and not simply looking to chase headline capacity. Our fans will find themselves closer to the pitch than at any other comparable stadium in the UK. This design puts fan experience first.

"In addition to the stadium, we are designing great facilities within the overall masterplan that will add positively to the local environment and locality, components that can play a role in the regeneration of the wider area."



David Keirle, Chairman of KSS, outlined the strategy behind the stadium design:

"The key driver has been to deliver the best possible fan experience on all levels.

"The visuals of the new stadium show that it's really seen as a building which responds to the brand, which we see as representing style and flowing lines of football.

"We have spent a great deal of time looking at different roof formations. The roof has been designed to focus the noise back onto the crowd and onto the pitch. All seating is enclosed, there are no open corners, so everything is focused back onto the pitch and the acoustics will maximise the impact of the vocal support from fans. The stadium will have a roof that allows us to have four large screens up in the top corners, which means every spectator will be able to see a whole host of information.

"The plans we have produced will result in close proximity for the fans to the pitch, we are going to be metres closer than other stadiums of comparable size. We are fine tuning the plans and these will ultimately determine the final capacity."



The new stadium will also benefit from a Club museum, shops and homes, new facilities for the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and important public space.

The plans will enable the team to remain at the current site throughout construction.

Daniel Levy added:
"Development projects on this scale take a long time from the initial starting point to final completion. Any new stadia we have seen recently would have been designed at least eight to ten years ago. We are designing for our future and this stadium design has been described as the first of the next generation of stadia.

"This development is more than just somewhere where the team can play football. The Northumberland Development Project will deliver substantial investment for the future of the Borough and will benefit the community.

"It's about leaving a legacy for this great Club and, once delivered, I hope all our fans around the world will be very proud."

An interview with Daniel Levy and David Keirle will be available shortly on Spurs TV Online and all free-to-view areas...

Insight into stadium designDavid Keirle, chairman of KSS, gives us an insight into the thinking behind the designs of the new stadium.

1. When you were initially approached to design the new stadium, what was the brief you were given by the Club and do you feel these aims have been achieved?

We were given a very clear brief by Daniel, and that was to provide fantastic atmosphere. There are a number of things people criticise the existing stadium for, but one thing it does have is fantastic atmosphere, that intensity and proximity of the fans to the pitch. Daniel made it clear he wanted a world class stadium, but he wanted to do things slightly differently. We wanted to give fans the best possible experience and recreate the atmosphere at the current stadium, and that's been the single most important factor as we've gone along.

As to whether we've achieved it, I think that's for others to judge, but I am very excited about what we've done. We've spent a long time getting this right, and Daniel's pushed us extremely hard on the design. Designing a big stadium is always complicated, and there are many factors to judge and balance, but I'm really excited about what we've done and I think it's something that will really separate us from other clubs.

2. Talk us through the design of the stadium.

We wanted to design a stadium that really reflects the Spurs brand. Fans will know that we've had a reputation over the years for flowing football, so we've tried to reflect these flowing lines. The whole architecture has responded to that concept and it is a flowing design that really picks up on that. We've focused on major entrances in the corners so fans can see them and it's obvious where they are with big video screens outside. It's a single entity that can be seen from a great distance, most of north London, particularly at night when the roof will appear to float above the stadium because we've got a wonderful screen of glass that links the two. We're intending to clad the building in aluminium shingles because it's a very complex shape, and it will allow us to shape the elevations of the building. That in itself will lift it above any other stadium and make it look so great. We've had a positive response from everyone we've shown it to, from all the various local governments and authorities, and I think it's a very exciting design.

3. The Club has been looking at options for several years now in respect of a new stadium - can you elaborate on this?

We were initially commissioned about five years ago to look at options for the existing stadium and looked at what it might be possible to do with the east and west stands and to upgrade north and south. But those proved very limiting and came nowhere near to the quality of fan experience or overall capacity the board at that time were considering was appropriate for Spurs. So that was reasonably quickly put to one side and we were then asked to look at other potential sites in north east London. We came up with about 18 or 20 sites that had the potential to manage a stadium of this size. But for one reason or another, they were all either undeliverable, not viable or nowhere near transport. All of those fell away and we started looking at a new stadium two years ago, and that was looking at options for the existing site and whether we could play away for a couple of seasons. It was about that time that we started expanding the site and looking at what those options are. A few months ago re-developing on the existing site became viable and deliverable.

4. What considerations did you take into account when designing the new stadium with respect to fans and local residents?

Designing a stadium like this is a whole myriad of geometric requirements and fan experience requirements, but there were some very key aspects to it. The first one was that Daniel really wanted a world class stadium that truly reflected the Spurs brand and that was materially different from other stadiums. Clearly many stadiums are following a common theme these days, but we were really looking at doing things differently. That meant we had to look at delivering the best possible fan experience and that was across a range of different levels, but most importantly that would replicate the intense atmosphere and viewing experience of our current stadium. I'm a Spurs fan who goes to a lot of stadium, and while the existing stadium has many faults as a stadium behind the scenes, it has the best atmosphere of any stadium in the Premier League, it's just stunning. Everything that we have done since we started this has been aimed at recreating that intense atmosphere. We're not chasing a headline capacity.

The other issue is that when it proved impossible to relocate sufficiently far away from the existing site to build a whole new stadium, and looking to vacate a ground for a number of years proved in no way viable or attractive as an option, the next thing was to look at designing a stadium that could be phased so that we could build approximately two thirds of it while we are still playing at home and then knock down the existing stadium, completing the new one the following season - so that we're always playing at our home. It was also a great opportunity to maintain the terrace of listed buildings to the north.

We wanted the stadium to be part of a much wider development with the new supermarket, housing and new public space. It is important that this sits comfortably within the locality, contributes to the area and provides enough reasons and facilities for the fans to arrive earlier, depart later and enjoy a total matchday experience.

Those are the real key design drivers that then lead on to maximising the fan experience, atmosphere and the facilities we want within the concourse. Anyone that knows the current stadium knows the concourse is very tight and it's difficult to get a drink and food at half-time, there aren't as many toilets as there should be because it's the design of a different era. We're looking at providing the best facilities and I think the Club wanted the stadium that would sit as a single object in its public realm and we'd look at it and think it's amazing, it's different to anything that's gone before.


5. How does this design differ from other new stadiums we have seen in recent years?

We focused on providing a much better atmosphere, a much better environment and intense relationship between fans and players than exists elsewhere. For instance, the distance set between the first row of seats and the pitch is something that's been criticised in many larger stadiums because, in complying with all the requirements in terms of safety, sight lines and everything else, it's much easier when you start further away from the pitch. We've turned that on it's head and said we're going to be metres closer than other comparable stadiums. So we've started from the point of view that we want people to have a similar kind of experience going to the new stadium as they do at the current stadium in terms of where they sit. The one thing you'll notice is that, in some places, we're four and a half metres closer to the pitch than at most other stadia.

It's not just about being closer to the action, it's also about being related to what's back-of-house. We've been looking at the offer on various concourses and executive levels to give a great relationship between where you sit and watch and what you can do there, how you can get in and out of the stadium.

We've looked at really trying to emphasise the public realm outside the stadium so that fans have got somewhere to meet. We're embedding video screens into the external envelope of the building so what we can build up the atmosphere outside, and providing the right facilities within the stadium enables people to arrive earlier. We want fans there an hour and a half before kick off so that fans can really enjoy the experience. The other big thing we've really worked on is keeping the noise within the stadium.

We have spent a great deal of time looking at different roof formations. The roof has been designed to focus the noise back onto the crowd and onto the pitch. All the seating is enclosed, there are no open corners, so everything is focused back onto the pitch and the acoustics will maximise the impact of the vocal support from fans. The stadium will have a roof that allows us to have four large screens up in the top corners, which means every spectator will be able to see a whole host of information.

So the overall spectator experience will be a million miles away from the current back-of-house, and very close to what happens on the pitch once you're in your seat. That's a balance that hasn't really been struck at many other stadiums that have been built in the last few years, I see that from a fans perspective. When you see the visuals of the new stadium, again it's really seen as a building which responds to the Spurs brand, which we see as representing style and flowing lines of football. We've tried to design something that reflects that and we've really achieved that.

6. How will the great atmosphere synonymous with Spurs home games be maintained within this new stadium?

It's about getting close to the pitch but it's also about keeping the atmosphere and noise within the stadium itself. The roof has been designed to focus the noise back onto the crowd and onto the pitch. It's not just about having a great atmosphere for the fans, it's about having an intense atmosphere for the opposition to come to and be intimidated by. There are no open corners so everything is focused back onto the pitch.

One of the things we've spoke about is how we get the fans to sing together when they go to the new stadium. One of the problems with new stadiums is fans moving from their historic home where they all sing together, so we'll be working with fan groups and asking where they'd like to be so it compares and really try to recreate this intense group of supporters. It's not just a design issue, it's a question of how the crowd works.
We also want to make sure the atmosphere isn't just about sitting in your seat; it's that you learn about the lineage that's imbedded within the building, and we're doing the same thing with the training ground and picking up on the heritage and the lineage of what's gone before and what's to come with the new players coming through the system. You will be able to learn about the heritage on the concourse and that builds it up. We went to look at some American stadia in the summer and we looked at how baseball teams picked up on their heritage and built up the atmosphere through great pictures and images on video screens throughout the stadium. That builds up to the moment you get in your seat and you realise how close you are considering this is a big stadium.

7. Fans have commented that having distinct stands is important. The new stadium is a bowl, how will that cover this point?

I am aware of the discussions regarding separate stands, but it's important to note that the current stadium is a bowl and does not have separate stands, almost all stadia are bowl designs for a very good reason. If we did separate the stands, you would have gaps in between them where the atmosphere can leak out, which we don't want. The current stands wrap around into a nice round bowl, but what they do have is distinct personalities. Park Lane is very different from Paxton Road and The Shelf, so what we've looked at is creating a very tight wrap-around bowl that gives the opportunity for different personalities because each of the upper tiers will be distinct and separate. So you will actually get the tight feel of a bowl, but also the feeling that each stand has it's own personality.

The bowl design means good sight lines from every single seat and also means, with the design of our tiers, that every fan will have a view of all the fans in the stadium.

8. What is the expected capacity?

The Chairman has been quite clear in his brief to us - it's not about chasing headline capacity, it about atmosphere and fan experience. The key issue is that we're going to have the best atmosphere of any Premier League stadiums both now and afterwards, so everything relates back to that.

We're going to be somewhere between 55,000 and 60,000. It's getting the balance right between proximity to the pitch, seat width, leg room, sight lines, all of those combined. We could give everyone a much bigger capacity but everyone will be further away from the pitch. We think that being closer, and we've talked to fan groups and a lot of people at the club, gives you that intensity.

9. What excites you most about this project?

I think we have the chance to see something a bit different. We've been involved in a number of stadium projects over the years, but as a Spurs fan and a football fan, the opportunity to be able to design a total piece of architecture sitting in this urban block, which seeks to reflect everything about Spurs, is exciting. It's not just about architecture, it's about fan experience. It's a wonderful challenge to be given as a stadium architect.

10. Would you say this is a stadium of the future?

I think it really is a stadium of the future. You have to remember these projects take a long time from start to finish, so any of the new stadiums we have seen recently would have been designed at least eight to ten years ago. Now we've had the opportunity to look at the best in the world and we've taken all the tips and brought them together, so it's a real opportunity for us to design something which is. Having shown a number of people the design, somebody recently said to me that they thought this was the first of a brand new generation of stadia.

Why did you post this in this thread?
Wembley would be the stadium used for London, so this would not affect a WC bid.

Nice stadium for Hotspur! Almost as nice as Emirates

As far as I can tell, I thought you were allowed two stadium's in one city for the World Cup.

Basically I think what he was suggesting by putting up Spur's new ground is that it's not necessarily going to go to being Wembley and the Emirates.

well London can use two stadiums, although I think the Emirates' higher capacity would put it over this stadium

If London will use 2 stadiums, the second will be Emirates for sure unless they would refuse to bid. And plus...till then it might be possible for Emirates to extend.

The stadium has a specific architecture on the 3 rd tier in wave shape, those spaces can be filled up and added seats.

With Emirates, the new Spurs ground and potential new venues for West Ham and Chelsea, the decision on the second London stadium looks like it will most likely come down to location (specifically the space around the location for sponsors, etc.) and transportation.

I still think it's a crying shame that Twickenham is likely to be ruled out due to it's rugby heritage. Fantastic venue. Much bigger than Emirates or Spurs (82k).

Ashburton Grove might be the second biggest football ground in London. However, with an Olympic Stadium being built which has better transport links, has a greater capacity and is surrounded by a park rather than a residential area, it can be questioned whether AG will be the second pick in London.

Yes I know the Olympic Stadium is intended to be down-sized to an 25.000 seater athletic stadium. But in case that England is going to host the 2018 World Cup, that 6 years after the London Olympics, the remodelling might be postponed to 2018 or even revoked.

A stadium with an athletics track is terrible for football. If London was that desperate to have two 80,000+ stadiums they'd find some way of using Twickenham. But they're not and a 90,000 and 60,000 seater will do just fine.

Depends on the stadium, if your talking about a soviet type stadium like Luzhniki or the demolished Lia Manoliu in Bucharest yes, it's kinda crappy and a 60.000 football stadium is to choose between one like that that would be 20.000 seats bigger.
But i had no problems at all on Barcelona's Olympic stadium at a Espanyol game and also other Olympic stadiums seems to have a good view at least on the 2nd and 3rd tier.
The best of the best are English stadiums like old Highbury, West Hams or others the new one's seem less steep and the first seats are not as close to the pitch.

FFA: Cup bid to boost tourism

Quote:
FIFA's executive committee that convenes in Tokyo this week to decide on the ground rules for the bidding process is also expected to confirm that the 2018 and 2022 tournaments be voted on at the same time.

Should a bidder for 2018 be unsuccessful then it would be able to enter the vote for 2022 to be held immediately afterwards as long as the 2018 hosts are not from the same continent.

Which means that if the 2018 event goes to Europe, Australia's chances of getting the 2022 tournament would soar because it won't have any Europeans to contend with.

The country winning the right to stage the 2018 World Cup will have the right to host the Confederations Cup in 2017. A decision is expected before June 2011.
Great news for those that miss out on 2018 providing they're not from the same confederation.

Anything is possible with money and space. As we've discussed elsewhere, alterations to one end and portions of the roof could add 3-8k, but at notable costs-per seat. Given that, a one time expansion all around, expanding the top tier, could yield (layman's guess) about 17k more seats. Done in phases so as to minimize impacts on existing roof frame, this wouldn't severely impact capacity during the season. This would require permission to surpass current height restrictions, however, and require additional ventilation and artificial lighting for growing the pitch. Won't be considered until Highbury is sold off, however.

Unlikely West Ham will have a viable option. Even if they can match s**** fanbase (I don't know), they lack the finances to make such a significant evolution. Chelski, meanwhile, would be hard pressed as well considering the club is unable to pay back RA the $1B owed and I doubt he'd "gift" them another $400M to compete with Emirates or the new WHL.

I sincerely doubt the FA will want to use venues outside the clubs' stadiums. This is supposed to be a showcase for the "most popular league in the world," a veritable commercial for the brands that make so much money. Even if 60k is the best available for #2 in London, seeing as it's still a state-of-the-art venue and they'll be making $ hand over fist, there's little point going outside the existing soccer venues.

IMO, foolish. In addition to the reasons I posted above you're suggesting the use of athletics venue, one designed to be disassembled because something so large isn't necessary or viable long-term, the temporary sections for which have already been programmed for use elsewhere. Postponing that restructuring just to host at best 6 games would be borderline shameful considering the venues available throughout the city.

As a Gooner I'd rather see the s**** new home host the games than the olympic stadium. Now if that doesn't tell you something...

You miss the point that the stadium itself isn't enough for the FIFA. They also call for the area surrounding the ground. Furthermore is transportation an issue that the FIFA takes much more serious than the FA and English authorities do.

There's no need for you to fear that new WHL is favoured over Ashburton Grove. The latter has more capacity, is closer to the city centre, has better transport links and most importantly Woolwich has the better connections to decision makers in London, England and the FA.

I'd say that one 90'000 seater is actually enough. I don't see the point in using two grounds in one city. Play all the London games in Wembley and you'll be able to provide more tickets and get more money in return.

I'm not disagreeing with you that such things are a factor, but with as much certainty as can be said just shy of fact I know the FA, the clubs and the English fans want this to be a showcase of their venues, their hallowed grounds as it were. This is the land that birthed organized football, home of the wealthiest league and clubs in the world! Pilgrims are flocking to worship in temples of Old Trafford and the homes of Liverpool, Villa, etc. To think that London could be home to 4 top-rate venues of 40k (possibly 50k) or more by that date yet suggest they'd need to use the Olympic stadium would be tantamount to an embarassment. Many grow irate the moment you hint at using Cardiff instead of a smaller venue at, say, Bristol because they want this to be about English football. As such, if they use a second venue in London that isn't home to a Premier club, I will be completely shocked.

As to your space allotment around the ground, there'll be plenty of organized gathering spots around the city to help with this. FIFA can't expect every facility to come equipped with acres of car-parks usable for vending, and they'll surely make accommodations considering the size and quality of the venues that will be available to them in England.

There's no need for you to fear that new WHL is favoured over Ashburton Grove. The latter has more capacity, is closer to the city centre, has better transport links and most importantly Woolwich has the better connections to decision makers in London, England and the FA.
No hubris involved here, I assure you. I'll trust the bid makers to choose the right football ground, and if they feel another is better than so be it.

I'd say that one 90'000 seater is actually enough. I don't see the point in using two grounds in one city. Play all the London games in Wembley and you'll be able to provide more tickets and get more money in return.
Possible but I truly think they'll spread the wealth. As I said, use the event to showcase their feature stadiums and to invest in new/improved grounds as needed.

hola!!.. he seguido este tread durante su inicio, la verdad para mexico es muy dificil organizar unmundial por la situacion economica almenos en los proximos 20 años.

despues de Brasil 2014 seguramente el mundial regresara a europa, y ahi España tiene grandes posibilidades, ya que actualmente estan construyendo como 5 estadios de exelente nivel, ademas que por el momento es el mas capacitado para organizarlo si sudafrica no lo puede hacer en el 2010.

mis pronosticos viendo situaciones economicas, estadios actuales y posibilidades de construccion de estadios es la sig:

2010 - Sudafrica
2014 - Brazil
2018 - España
2022 - Australia
2026 - U S A
2030 - Marruecos
2034 - Europa ( Belgica/Holanda-Inglaterra )

QUE PASEN UNA FELIZ NAVIDAD Y UN EXELENTE AÑO NUEVO!!!

2030 ira a Europa o a Argentina/Uruguay.

16 años entre copas en europa es demasiado

la unica razon que no fuera en europa es por el centenario de la primera copa del mundo (uruguay 1930)
