Tottenham Hotspur stadium: Daniel Levy claims 62,000-seater makes Spurs a ‘big club’ and capacity has ‘nothing to do with Arsenal’

Tottenham can officially call themselves a big club thanks to their new stadium, according to owner Daniel Levy.

The breathtaking 62,000-seater arena will finally open for the Premier League visit of Crystal Palace on Wednesday night.

It boasts the second-largest capacity in England’s top flight, behind Old Trafford and ahead of Arsenal’s Emirates – but Levy insists the club did not have their north London neighbours in mind.

“It’s nothing to do with Arsenal,” he said.

“All I can say is we wanted to build a stadium that had a minimum capacity of 60,000, and we managed to get it to 62,000.
