Tottenham Hotspur confirm 'Kop-style' stand remains part of stadium plans after new pictures spark confusion
Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed a one-tier ‘Kop-style’ South Stand remains part of its new stadium designs following confusion among fans this afternoon.
Supporters were left disappointed when new images, published in an online application for minor amendments to the plans, appeared to show a switch to a two-tier stand – similar to Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.
The graphics, which were available on Haringey Council’s planning website, were removed this afternoon after a Twitter storm erupted among fans.
Many were left angered at the apparent scrapping of the one-tier stand, with many contacting the club's official Twitter feed to voice their concerns.
But the club confirmed to the Haringey Independent this afternoon that the one-tier stand, similar to Liverpool’s famous Kop end, remains part of the designs.
The amendments, which were submitted to Haringey Council last week, concern drainage and hoardings placements, as well as environmental plans for the new stadium.
