Tottenham have announced that they will play at Leyton Orient's Brisbane Road from the start of the 2022/23 WSL season, bringing an end to their three years at The Hive.

The club also confirmed that they will continue to play 'selected WSL fixtures at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium when scheduling permits'.

Spurs opened and closed their 2021/22 campaign at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and broke the all-time WSL attendance record when they hosted rivals Arsenal at the ground in front of 38,262 spectators in November 2019.

Tottenham have played at The Hive - also the home of men's National League outfit Barnet - in Canons Park, north-west London, since their debut season in the WSL in 2019/20. Brisbane Road is located 14 miles east of their former home in Leyton, east London.

The stadium move sees Spurs up the capacity of their home ground, with Brisbane Road able to hold 9,271 spectators, in comparison to the Hive's capacity of 6,500 - of which 1,081 was safe standing.

Their new home is also well served by public transport, sitting 0.6 miles from London Underground central line stop Leyton.

"We are delighted to announce that we shall play our women’s first team home games at Brisbane Road Stadium, home of Leyton Orient FC, from the start of the 2022/23 season," a statement on Tottenham's official club website reads.

"We should like to thank the owners and staff at the Hive for their support and wish them well for the future."

Tottenham enjoyed an impressive 2021/22 campaign, spending much of the season challenging for the Champions League spots and registering an all-time high WSL finish of fifth.
