After heavy delays, and re-organised grand openings, Tottenham fans can finally view the completed version of their brand new 62,000 seat stadium… unfortunately, it’s a virtual version.
As mid-September rolls around, so does the release of this year’s much-awaited FIFA 19 game, the latest instalment in the hit franchise.
And this year, FIFA is set to include the finished version of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, despite the fact that the ground is far from finished.
It was originally scheduled to open on September 15 against Liverpool, but delays could extend that opening to November 24, or as late as December or even 2019.
Electrical issues in the fire safety systems were the cause for delays to building, with construction firm Mace way behind their schedule.
FIFA 19 is set to be released on September 28, well before the new ground will actually open, so if fans want to get a taste of the looks and atmosphere of their brand new stadium, FIFA is the only place to go, for now.
