As the entire footballing world is aware, Tottenham made an announcement last week stating that their brand new 62,000 seat stadium would not be ready for it’s planned grand opening against Liverpool.
This fixture on September 15, along with multiple others in the foreseeable future has been moved to Wembley, Tottenham’s home of last season.
The construction company behind the delays, Mace, made a statement yesterday, explaining that the delays stemmed from faults in the wiring for the fire safety systems.
No date was given as to a new grand opening, but rumours of a February 2019 finish has been circulating.
This morning, an update out of PaddyPower could hint that Spurs may not play in the new stadium at all this season.
The famous bookies has suspended betting on Spurs to do just that, as a flurry of bets came in at 25/1 today.
When betting sites suspend betting on a transfer rumour, it can usually indicate that either a hell of a lot of people bet on it, or it’s pretty nailed on to happen. These sites do their research after all.
Could this be the latest hint of further delays? And should Tottenham just write off this season in regards to their new stadium, would it be less unsettling for the squad to play at one ground, Wembley? Share your thoughts with us.
