Tottenham deny reports claiming stadium will be ready only by 2019

Tottenham have denied claims that our new stadium would not be ready before 2019, according to Sky Sports.

Construction News reported that the stadium would be complete only by the first week of January. The report quoted an insider claiming that Spurs could play their home games at other grounds for the rest of the season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, however, a Tottenham spokesperson said:

“We have always said that we would issue updates for test events and official opening as soon as we have confidence in our project managers’ and contractors’ ability to deliver against the revised scheduled of works.

“This remains the case and speculating on unsupported dates such as this is irresponsible.”

Tottenham haven’t shared a date as to when our home will be ready. The delay in moving to our new stadium has been due to safety concerns. And we will play a number of our Premier League home fixtures at Wembley too.

The report adds that Wembley would be the venue for our Champions League group home games. The Carabao Cup game against Watford would be played at Stadium MK since Wembley is not available for that date.
