New Spurs Stadium

Spurs have another month to finalise their fixture plans for next season as they prepare to start the new campaign with a run of away games.

The club have been in discussions with the Premier League about the options if our new £800milllion, 62,062-seat stadium is not ready in time for the start of 2018-19.

The FA are aware of the possible delays to the new ground and in a recent meeting with the clubs Supporters’ Trust, chairman Daniel Levy acknowledged the early league matches were likely to be played away from home. While the Premier League are comfortable with the current situation, they will be keen for clarity after the Championship play-off final on May 26th

The club are also confident that Shahid Khan’s possible purchase of Wembley Stadium will not have an adverse effect on our own plans for staging NFL at their new ground.

We have a 10-year agreement in place to stage at least two NFL matches per season at their new ground, although there will be only one this year, when Seattle Seahawks face Oakland Raiders on October 14th
