Spurs seek OS ground share with Hammers


Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy(right)  has admitted to the  Tottenham Hotspur Supporter’s Trust the club may have to ground share with West Ham during the 2016/17 .

The north Londoners will be awaiting completion of their new White Hart  line stadium which is facing delays.

In April it emerged that Levy tried to buy the Boleyn Ground only to be rejected by the board in favor of the Galliard Group.

It now appears he may try to ground share with us during our first season in the Olympic Stadium in a move that will anger many following his initial objection to our bid.

Levy believes Wembley is too costly and problematic to fill, and the notion of ground-sharing the Emirates Stadium would probably cause a riot among Spurs supporters.

ClaretandHugh has learned there is a strong possibility he will approach the London Legacy Development Corporation in the same way Barry Hearn is negotiating for a ground share for Leyton Orient.

  1. I can’t see that it concerns us much – we are only tenants and the owners, LDDC or whoever it is now, can do what they like!

  2. Just so long as their fans have to sit in Claret and Blue seats, with “Academy of Football” logos on the pitch and any agro (e.g. ripping up of said c&b seats) results in them having to play their next “home” game in front of an empty stadium (whilst still paying rental to LDDC as if fully occupied)

    Oh yes, and any odd kick-off times caused by these arrangements: given that we’re the anchor tenant we get decent kickoff times and Sp*rs have to fit around.
