Tottenham’s new £850m stadium ‘may not be ready’ for the start of 2018/19 season

With what is not expected to go down well with the Tottenham fans, the club could be forced to play their opening few games away from their new home, according to reports. The Football.London reports that Spurs fans will have to wait a little bit before they can watch their team play in the new White Hart Lane due to the unforeseen British weather.

The Spurs chiefs have until the end of February to tell league managers whether their new home will be ready in time for the 2018/19 Premier League season. Any further delay in the construction work of the building could see Mauricio Pochettino’s play their first few games away from home.

While Spurs chairman Daniel Levy remains highly optimistic that the new £850m stadium will be ready ahead of the brand new season, any stoppage in work just cannot take place now. The work should continue to be in full flow, which means the next few weeks will be very crucial.

As with the project, some parts of the building are right on track to be finished on time, while some have made tremendous progress than expected. Of course, there remain few things which are to be completed, regarding the building.

The report adds that the £20million roof is now being lifted into place, which the club, a few weeks back, had described it as a ‘key milestone’ in the stadium construction. The process is expected to take a number of weeks and it would be highly dependent on weather conditions. An unpleasant or horrid weather could lead the construction to get delayed.

Should any problems arise in the upcoming months, Spurs could be forced to play a handful of their early fixtures away from home, just like West Ham and Liverpool have done in recent seasons. The new stadium is set to host its first NFL fixture on October 14 when the Seattle Seahawks play Oakland Raiders, which will mark the first fixture of a 10-year deal with NFL.

That comes as an added pressure on Levy and co. to ensure the work continues in full flow and the dream project is ready ahead of the brand new season of the Premier League. While it was tough to bid goodbye to the old White Hart Lane, let’s hope our new stadium brings a lot of trophies and turns us into a bigger club than what we currently are.
