And this time, it was the club’s president himself who announced: Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will not be ready before March. Daniel Levy apologized to the fans, thanked them for their patience and confirmed that the first game on the brand new stadium can only be made more than six months later than originally planned, September 2018. Last December, the club even promoted a tour in the South section Stand, only for season ticket holders.
– The response from those attending the familiarization event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to delivering an exceptional experience for every day. We will now seek clarity regarding the construction of test schedules and test event dates and provide more information about these in the next two to three weeks, “Levy said.
Tottenham’s new stadium began to be designed in March 2015. With capacity for just over 62,000 supporters, it was built next to the old White Hart Lane, the former home of the Spurs. In addition to the team’s games, it will also receive matches from the NFL, the main American football league in the United States.
The inauguration of the new stadium could be against rival Arsenal on March 2 or even in another London derby against Crystal Palace on 16, both Premier League games. The Champions League quarter-finals are scheduled for April.
Until March, Tottenham will play at least four more Premier League games at Wembley, where they have played since last season: against Manchester United on Sunday, Watford, Newcastle and Leicester. In addition, the home game for the last 16 of the Champions League against Borussia Dortmund in February is also sure to be at this stadium. If they advance in the FA Cup, they play the fifth round in the same place.
Let’s see when the Spurs’ stadium will be ready for the Premier League! It looks lit in my opinion, and it will surely be revolutionary, not only for English Football, but also for the whole World.
