Where Poch made us dare... José will make us do!!
Going with Wife on Saturday. She wants to take handbag. Yes it is size of A4 but do any of our femail supporters have a problem taking a handbag in?
Took my Mrs to the N London Derby (Women) game and she had a handbag, slightly smaller than A4, no issues. Obviously they'll look inside.
 
Application for capacity increase to 62,303. Additional Season tickets to be available:


It seems we will see more seats added shortly as well:

Extensive work continues to be undertaken with our architects to identify areas within the stadium where additional seating could be installed – a further application for an increase in capacity will be made in due course.

Thanks for that.

I've applied/registered interest.

Eventually we will have people sitting on drones hovering above the ground.

We are pleased to announce that our new drone package will include exclusive birdseye views of match day action, never seen before angles of the Sky Lounge and the opportunity to wave gloating middle fingers at club 1882. Away supporter packages will also be included.

90 extra seats added with more to come according to that link, I fancy the club will end up with a 62,500 capacity, possibly 63,000 as there'll be plenty of space they can and will squeeze out of areas which clearly seems to be on the agenda.

They'll be analysing areas that get used less than forecast, areas such as disabled spacing between seats or walkway width, all that stuff when squeezed slightly would surprisingly open up space not maximised I'm sure. I wouldn't be surprised to see the club find a way of adding just one extra seat per row by squeezing space up between seats over the next few years. One extra seat per row all the way across the stadium opens up silly numbers to get added. I find it so fascinating that since we've opened we've basically added a further 250-300 seats, that's 1/3rd of my entire Senior School back when I went :myword:

She'll be fine. Make sure you put your sarnies in it, or they'll get fucking binned, the bastard fucking little hitlers.
 
According to Wikipedia:

1- Barcelona - 99,354
2 - Borussia Dortmund - 81,365
3 - Real Madrid - 81,044
4 - AC Milan & Inter Milan - 80,018
5 - Man United - 75,731
6 - Bayern Munich - 75,024
7 - Hertha Berlin - 74,064
8 - Roma & Lazio - 72,698
9 - Zenit St Petersburg - 68, 134
10 - Atletico Madrid - 67,703
11 - Marseille - 67,394
12 - Benfica - 64,642
13 - Tottenham Hotspur - 62,303
14 - Schalke - 62,271

The stadium increase planned takes us up to 13th biggest club stadium in Europe, a place higher than we are at present just behind Schalke 04. That will soon move further up the list with Roma & both Milans set to relocate.


1. Real Madrid – $4.24bn (£3.38bn)

2. Barcelona – $4bn (£3.19bn)

3. Manchester United – $3.8bn (£3.03bn)

4. Bayern Munich – $3bn (£2.39bn)

5. Manchester City – $2.69bn (£2.15bn)

6. Chelsea – $2.6bn (£2.07bn)

7. Woolwich – $2.3bn (£1.83bn)

8. Liverpool – $2.18bn (£1.74bn)

9. Tottenham Hotspur $1.62 (£1.29bn)

10. Juventus $1.51 (£1.2bn)

11. Paris Saint-Germain $1.09bn (£870m)

12. Atletico Madrid $953m (£760m)

13. Borussia Dortmund $896m (£714m)

14. Schalke $683m (£545m)

15. Inter Milan $672m (£536m)

16. Roma $622m (£496m)

17. West Ham $616m (£491m)

18. AC Milan $583m (£465m)

19. Everton $476m (£379m)

20. Newcastle United $381m (£304m)



Going by the most valuable clubs list, we find ourselves having the overall 5th biggest club stadium in Europe, trailing only Real Madrid, Barcelona, Man United and Bayern Munich.

I noticed the guy in front of me the other day had a record bag/ satchel type thing that was definitely bigger than A4 so they seem to be relaxing on that a bit, a handbag will be no problem.

New book about the stadium about to come out:


From the website:
An incredible first-person account from Daniel Levy, describing the numerous challenges that were overcome in the land assembly and planning stages – not to mention the discovery of a large-scale drugs operation in one of the buildings.

Id rather go by average attendences.I think we would be about 6th. We should also be worth about 2bn now easily.

Stadium cost 1bn to build. It will be worth alot more than that.
