The additional seats can be accommodated through minor modifications to the south-west and south-east tunnels, via the insertion of seats in areas such as the lateral gangway in front of the media tribune, and reconfigured access points.

Spurs are pressing ahead with the work as fans continue to be banned from stadiums due to the coronavirus pandemic.
