White Hart Lane was a Football stadium in North London and was the home of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club from 1899 to 2017 and had a capacity of 36,284. The stadium was located in the Tottenham area of North London, England. Demolition has begun in May 2017.

Along with housing Tottenham, the stadium, which was known amongst Spurs fans as the Lane, had also been selected for England national football matches and England under-21 football matches. White Hart Lane held capacity records in the early 1960s with numbers entering the 70,000s but as seating was introduced, the stadium levelled out to a modest number in relation to other Premier League clubs. The record attendance remains an FA Cup tie on 5 March 1938 against Sunderland with the attendance being recorded at 75,038.

Construction work is in progress for Tottenham to move to a new stadium with an estimated capacity of 61,000, with the new stadium being built on the current site instead of moving elsewhere or from the borough of Haringey. The new stadium has been designed by Populous, which also designed derby rival Arsenal's home, the Emirates Stadium. Initial designs were created by KSS Design Group back in 2008, but long delays allowed for major changes to the scheme by a different company.
