2018 Cities Bid Updates - London (Arsenal)

2018 Cities Bid Updates - London (Arsenal)

The first round of FA visits to all the potential host cities has now taken place and round two has begun. Of the original fifteen starters, all have passed the first stage and in fact, a sixteenth, Plymouth, have added their name.

From Vital England:

As you would expect, London have had a lot of coverage, especially as they have announced their intention to try to get FIFA to allow them to enter four stadiums. FIFA rules stipulate no more than two venues per city. Wembley is obviously the flagship of the bid and The Emirates would be another automatic choice. But the London bid now includes the new Olympic Stadium and the yet-to-be-started Tottenham stadium. Until now, the plans were to reduce the capacity of the Olympic Stadium after the Games, to a mere 26,000, so we await with interest how they plan to have a stadium of the required size in 2018. The much talked about redevelopment of White Hart Lane seems to be just that as yet - 'much talked about'.

Oh please, anyone who believes that Spurs will really build a new stadium needs to get their head examined. Never happen, just like Liverpool will never build their new stadium. And I would actually like for Spurs to build it because -- without fail -- clubs who build new stadiums go thru very difficult periods afterward, many (if not most) slide right down the league table. That's why we're having so much trouble right now. And we are far better equipped to handle the stresses of building a new stadium (in terms of staying high up in the league table) than Spurs are.
