Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has revealed that there will be two test events held at the new stadium ahead of its official opening.
The 62,062 capacity stadium is scheduled to open in August ahead of the new Premier League campaign which kicks off on Saturday 18th August, however, Levy did not reference a completion time for the build but rather said that future updates would be given.
The test events will help the club satisfy health and safety requirements which must be fulfilled before the stadium opens officially. No detail has been given yet on what type of event will be held, just that supporters will be required to attend the events.
Should the stadium deadline not be met, there have been suggestions that the club will ask the Premier League to play the opening few games away from home while work is completed.
He said in a statement on the official Spurs site: “As you all head off for the summer period we shall be working hard on the final stages of the new stadium.
“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. We shall give a further stadium update, including the dates for these events, as completion times become more certain.”
