An article by The Daily Mail says the club are working through the night to ensure the new stadium is ready for next season.

According to the article construction work remains on schedule adding that over a thousand workers labouring seven days a week, the main bowl is complete and the stands are taking shape.

The article adds that the club expect the roof to be on by spring which should see the £800million development then accelerate toward completion.

It adds that Corporate-box showrooms are open and work has started on the internal facilities.

The article goes on to say that any slight delays and the club will seek help from the fixture schedulers at the Premier League to play the first two or three games of the 2018-19 season away from home.

It points out that Liverpool switched one fixture to play their first three games away from home last season as they completed work on the new Kenny Dalglish Stand at Anfield and how West Ham switched two in order to play their first three games away this season as the London Stadium was reconfigured after the World Athletics Championships.

However the article does say the Premier League will not allow home games to be played at different grounds.

The article believes that more significant delays, although not expected, may see us play another year at Wembley and we would again need permission from Brent Council but there would be no objection from Wembley, where the club’s residency has proved a success.

It concludes by saying No English clubs will be involved in Champions League qualifiers next season after UEFA’s restructuring of the competition but if We do face Europa League qualifiers we will have to hire a venue however UEFA say clubs must play all their matches at the same ground but, in practice, many have used different stadiums in qualifying.
