Our new stadium is edging closer to completion, with the roof now being installed on the club’s impending 62,000-seater home.
The club are aiming for the ground to be completed for the start of next season, after finishing third, reaching the FA Cup semi-finals and Champions League knockout stages during their term at Wembley.
An option remains open for Mauricio Pochettino’s men to play a number of their opening games of next season away from home, or at Wembley, with chairman Daniel Levy recently confirming its completion date was still uncertain.
“As you all head off for the summer period we shall be working hard on the final stages of the new stadium,”:he told supporters in his end-of-season message.
“With a project of this scale there are always challenges and unknowns, but contractors, with a workforce approaching 3,000, are working around the clock. We shall ask for your support in attending the two test events we shall run in advance of the formal opening.
Levy added: “We shall give a further stadium update, including the dates for these events, as completion times become more certain.”
The new stadium will have a capacity of 62,062 which will also include a 17,500 single-tier stand behind the goal, which the club hopes will generate a “wall of sound”.
