Tottenham, NFL hit by further stadium delays

English Premier League football club Tottenham Hotspur has been forced to delay the opening of its new stadium amid issues with the venue’s critical safety systems.

The 62,000-seat stadium had been due to host its first Spurs match on September 15, but the fixture against Liverpool will now be held at Wembley Stadium. Spurs' home match against Cardiff City on October 6 will also be staged at Wembley, where the club spent all of last season while work on the new ground was carried out.
