Tottenham moved to White Hart Lane in 1899, bringing a few mobile stands from their previous ground to the site that had been rented from a brewery.
White Hart Lane officially opened on the 4th of September 1899 with a match between Spurs and Notts County (4-1).
The small ground was quickly expanded in the following six years: first with a covered main stand and then with wooden and banked terraces, resulting in a capacity of about 40,000 by 1905.
Redevelopments continued in the next decade when first Archibald Leitch was hired to design a new main stand, and a few years later a new covered East Stand was built. This resulted in the stadium getting its rectangular shape and a capacity increase to about 50,000 places.
White Hart Lane got further expanded in the early 1920s when two new covered terraces were built at both ends. In 1934, the East Stand got further developed and enlarged, resulting in a capacity of 80,000.
White Hart Lane welcomes a record crowd in 1938 when a total of 75,038 spectators attended a match between Tottenham and Sunderland.
The stadium remained largely unchanged for the next decades. Capacity started to slowly decline from the 1960s when parts of the terraces were converted into seating areas, though extra seats were created by linking up the West Stand with both ends.
The old West Stand was finally demolished in 1980 and replaced by a new all-seater stand, which opened in 1982. The East Stand got extensively renovated in 1989, which was followed by further refurbishments and the conversion of the stadium into an all-seater in the early 1990s.
The last change to the stadium was made in 1998 when a second tier was built on the Paxton Road Members Stand.
Capacity of White Hart Lane has remained relatively limited though, and as a result Spurs have considered various options from expanding White Hart Lane to building a new stadium, or even moving to the London Olympic Stadium.

The club is currently pursuing plans that were first presented in 2008 and involve the construction of a new stadium with a capacity of 56,250 seats adjacent to White Hart Lane. Spurs are currently trying to secure funding for the project.
