According to an article in The Mail we are set to play our first home game of next season at Wembley

Despite the £850m project making rapid progress deadlines are tight to get the ground ready for the early games of the new season.

The article says the Premier League will grant the club it’s first three matches of the new season away from home, and we will also be given permission to play away in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

It adds however that possible delays on the new ground mean Mauricio Pochettino’s team may need to play at least one home league game at Wembley.

The Premier League kicks off again on August 11th and there are three further rounds of games before the first international break with the league resuming on September 15th and The Mail understands Spurs have found an agreement with Wembley to play there while their stadium development is completed.

The article goes on to say Premier League rules say a club must complete all of their home games at the same ground however Spurs are understood to have the support of other clubs in allowing them to switch home after the season has started.

The Premier League are also keen to be supportive of any club looking to upgrade their stadium and as sick Spurs are set to gain approval to continue with Wembley as a temporary home for the season’s opening weeks, should they need it.

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Nonsense article because it’s factually incorrect. Football Association and Premier League rules do not allow a club to play home games at 2 different venues. All home games MUST be played at the same stadium.
