Have Tottenham Been Set A Stadium Deadline Date? Spurs Still Hopeful Of March Move In

Will Spurs move into their stadium this season?
Will Spurs move into their stadium this season?

Barely a day goes by without a mention of Tottenham’s eagerly anticipated new £1billion stadium.

And now the latest reports from the Daily Mail reveal that the new 62,062-capacity stadium is not expected to be completely finished before the end of the current campaign, although that doesn’t mean Tottenham won’t be able to take to the field at their new home before the season is out.

Spurs are still hopeful that they can make their bow against Crystal Palace which is scheduled for Saturday 16th March, having confirmed in a statement last week that their league clashes against Watford (30 January), Newcastle United (2 February) and Leicester City (10 Feb) will definitely take place at Wembley, as will the tasty Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund (13 Feb).

The Mail also states that should Tottenham’s stadium not be ready in time for the fixture against Brighton (6 April), then the Premier League could force the club to stay at Wembley for the remainder of the season. In other words Spurs have less than three months to get their act together and finally open the doors to their new pad.

In terms of the next official update, an apologetic Daniel Levy said in a statement:

“I should like to apologise to our fans and thank you for your continued patience.

“The response from those who attended the familiarisation event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone.

“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.”

Tottenham are next in action at home to Old Gunnar Solskjaer's Man Utd this afternoon. Pochettino's troops head into the match knowing that a win would be enough to leapfrog Man City into 2nd spot, for 24 hours at least.
