“Absolutely shambolic, Levy” – Spurs stadium delay causes uproar among some fans

Some of the Tottenham Hotspur fanbase have taken to social media to react furiously to the news that the new stadium has been delayed, again.

A statement on the official Spurs site confirmed that the stadium will not be ready for the Premier League fixture against Liverpool on Saturday September 15th and the further fixture against Cardiff City on 6th October, along with the NFL match between Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks have all been moved to Wembley while work continues on the stadium.

The club have revealed that recent testing and commissioning has now shown issues with the critical safety systems which have meant that the two planned test events which included an Under-23 fixture against Brighton, along with a Spurs Legends match against Bayern Munich have been delayed and these matches need to be held before a safety certificate is issued ahead of the first official match.

Needless to say, those Spurs fans who have paid through the nose for their season ticket are not impressed.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Why oh why does this fans site only ever concentrate on the negatives… I am sure that there were more posts showing support but there are a few so called fans sites that seem to love putting the club, the players, levy and Poch down. It’s almost the worst thing about supporting our great club is having to put up with the negativity.

  2. I don’t see how the fans can blame Levy for the stadium not being ready in time. I live in Florida (but born in Tottenham) and watch the stadium build via the streaming cameras at various times during the day. It seemed obvious to me that the U23 game would NOT take place at the stadium on the 27th. The grass is not even down yet…but would seem close to going down as of August 14th.

    Maybe the club owes some of the fans that have paid increased season ticket prices some sort of refund as a measure of good faith though.
