Tottenham could be forced into using three separate home grounds this season, after their new stadium fails to meet the tight deadline.
Spurs announced on Monday that their brand new 62,000 stadium’s opening will be delayed until October at the earliest.
Currently games against Fulham, Liverpool and Cardiff have been moved to Wembley, however, that will not be an option for the following home match against the Champions, Manchester City.
During the weekend of October 28, when the City game is scheduled to be played, Wembley is hosting an NFL fixture between Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles.
This means that Wembley will not be available to Spurs, and if their stadium isn’t ready, neither will that.
This leaves Tottenham with three options. Rescheduling the match for the day before, or a later date may be the most realistic option for Spurs, but would it be feasible with the FA and the Premier League?
The second option would be to reverse the fixture, and have the match played at the Etihad, similar to a situation with West Ham last season. However, reports suggest that the Premier League are unwilling to agree to these terms this season, as the impact on the fixture list and other teams would be too great.
That leaves the final option, a third ground. Tottenham may be forced to find a third stadium to play this home fixture at.
Spurs are already set to become the first Premier League club in history to play home matches at two different grounds, why not go one further?
