Spurs given extension on ground decision

0

According to the London Evening Standard Spurs will not know the location of their first home game of next season when the Premier League announces the 2018-19 fixtures on Thursday.

The article believes The FA have given Spurs an extra 48 hours — until Friday — to decide if they want to renew their tenancy at Wembley adding that it is the second time the club has postponed the decision.

It adds how we were due to tell the FA on Wednesday if the club wishes to play their first home games of 2018-19 at the national stadium before moving into their new home. The deadline had already been pushed back from the end of May.

The article goes on to say that the venue for our home games is set to be listed as ‘to be confirmed’ on the official fixture list.

Contractors are working around the clock to try to finish the £850million project on schedule, but however the article adds how doubts remain about when it will be ready, even after a run of away games and the September international break.

It is added that the Premier League will allow Spurs to reverse fixtures, meaning they will play three consecutive matches away from home when the season starts on August 11th.

It goes on to say that if Spurs believe their new 62,062-seat stadium will still not be complete after England’s friendly against Switzerland on September 11th. they may play one or two home games at Wembley, their home last season.

To that, the club would need permission from the Premier League board of outgoing chief executive Richard Scudamore and non-executive directors Kevin Beeston and Claudia Arney.
