Tottenham de-list shares from stock market

Spurs return to private ownership in order to secure funding for new stadium

Tottenham have stepped up their efforts to secure funding for a new stadium by de-listing their shares from the stock market.

The club confirmed that their final day of trading was January 13 before returning to private ownership.

Spurs are planning to build a new stadium after ending their interest in taking over as tenants of the Olympic Stadium.

Last year, chairman Daniel Levy said de-listing from the stock exchange would be beneficial, as the listing restricted the club’s 'ability to secure funding'.

The club had originally expressed an interest in taking over the Olympic Stadium but lost to West Ham.

A legal row subsequently broke out and the stadium has been put back out to tender.

Tottenham then revisited the Northumberland Project which would see the creation of a 20 acre site, including 56,250 seat stadium.
