New Tottenham stadium to open in April

The long-delayed opening of Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium finally appears to be on the horizon.

The club announced that two test events have been scheduled ahead of potential opening of the ground on either April 3 against Crystal Palace or the weekend of April 6-7 against Brighton. The final date is subject to the result of Brighton’s sixth round FA Cup tie with Millwall on March 17.

The early April opening date will allow Spurs to play its Uefa Champions League quarter-final home leg at the new stadium. Quarter-final ties will be played on April 9-10 and April 16-17.
