Daniel Levy has apologised to the fans after Tottenham Hotspur released a statement highlighting more delays in our new stadium.

The release states that several installations, remedial works and software issues have been involved. The team are now looking to finalise building test dates, control sign-offs and test events.

Several games have now been confirmed for Wembley which includes the clashes against Watford, Newcastle United and Leicester City.

The Champions League home tie against Borussia Dortmund on 13th February will also take place at Wembley. Should Tottenham make it to the fifth round of the FA Cup and receive a home draw, the game would also be played at Wembley.

Tottenham have faced several delays regarding the opening of the new ground. The initial date of September against Liverpool seems like a bad dream for the fans.

Levy shared a message where he thanked the fans for their patience (h/t Tottenhamhotspur.com):

“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 did hold a minor event with some fans getting a glimpse of the stadium but this is yet another frustrating delay for a side that hasn’t played a home game for a while.

Wembley might be a great stadium but it has never felt like home for Tottenham. To be fair, it is due to the players and coaching staff that we are doing well this season.

It will be interesting to see if any games will be played at the new stadium, given that we are facing new delays every month. Hopefully, Levy will have some good news for the fans before the end of the season.
