Spurs’ new stadium will not open until at least March

Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will not be ready to open until at least March reports the Associated Press. The new ground, which was slated to open in September 2018, has faced numerous delays.

The latest delay means that Spurs home matches through March – including the UEFA Champions League round-of-16 first leg against Borussia Dortmund will be played at Wembley. Tottenham has been playing home matches at Wembley since August 2017. Construction began on the new ground in May 2017 after the final match at White Hart Lane.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy told the AP: “We shall now seek clarity in respect of building test schedules and test event dates and provide further information on these in the next two-to-three weeks.”
