Tottenham’s new stadium

Tottenham are still unsure about where they might be playing their opening Premier League games as the league plans to announce the fixtures for the 2018-19 season on Thursday.

A report from the Evening Standard claims that Spurs have until Friday to confirm if they are willing to play a few games at Wembley next season, as our new £850m stadium is being built.

The report even suggests that the stadium might not be ready by the end of the September international break, which will end on 11 September.

Tottenham will be allowed to play their first three games away from home, similar to what Liverpool and West Ham had done when their stadiums were being developed/built.

However, Spurs might have to play up to two more games after the international break in Wembley as the new 62,062 seater stadium gets the final touches.

The club is confident that they would get permission from the Premier League board to play in two different ‘home’ stadiums and the club have already sold thousands of season tickets. So returning to Wembley, even for a couple of games might cause a problem for the fans.

This certainly is a bit of an upsetting development as the club has constantly shared updates on the new stadium and how it is getting close to completion.

We have seen thousands of workers spending hours each day trying to finish the stadium and not being able to start the Premier League season at home is bad enough but having to wait until September or even longer is not something anyone would have imagined at the start of last season. Hopefully, the club finishes the construction as early as possible.
