Tottenham Hotspur Could Play In New Stadium Before It Is Finished

Tottenham are running out of time...
Tottenham are running out of time...

Spurs’ saga surrounding their new stadium looks set to continue as it now appears that their new White Hart Lane will not be completed before the end of the current season.

However, all is not lost for Tottenham who could still play Crystal Palace in March as the inaugural game at the new ground, even if it is not completely finished. A source told the Daily Mail:

“There are large areas that will simply not be finished in time.

“But if you can safely get fans in and out, provide toilets and food, the stadium could still host games before the end of the season, even while the finishing touches remain. The vast majority of the hospitality lounges are ready to go.'”

The stadium that cost £1 billion to build was meant to be ready for the start of this season but it has been delayed several times and now scheduled to open in March. This week games against Newcastle, Leicester and Borussia Dortmund were rescheduled to take place at Wembley whilst fans are anxiously awaiting Daniel Levy’s next update.

If the club cannot get the ground ready before April 6th against Brighton, the Daily Mail report that the Premier League will force the club to spend the remainder of the season at Wembley. Of course, officials must also take into account the possibility of Spurs gaining an unfair advantage in both the latter stages of the Premier League and Champions League if they move into their new stadium with just a handful of games to go.

This update means the clock is ticking once again for Spurs and they have just over two months to iron out any technical and safety issues with the new White Hart Lane.
