Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has been speaking to the Supporter’s Trust about the progress of the new stadium.

Levy was forced to express his frustration back in early September following the decision to postpone the official opening of the 62,062 seater stadium.

He admitted to the official website that the consequences of the inability to host the Premier League match against Liverpool on September 15th were “immense” and that the issues were “costly and frustrating”.

He met with the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) on Tuesday evening at Lilywhite House and has been giving somewhat of an overview of the progress of the development.

Levy was joined at the meeting by Spurs’ executive director Donna-Maria Cullen who gave an insight into when fans could next hear some news on the build by confirming to the THST that “the next communication would be an update and would be issued in the next two to three weeks”.

The meeting minutes also mentions that “DL [Daniel Levy] stated that every day was progress but the Board wanted certainty before coming out with a timeline.”

The club also defended their decision to decide the original opening date of September 15th within the minutes: “Daniel Levy confirmed that announcing the Liverpool game as the first game in the stadium was not over ambitious and the stadium would have been ready if not for the safety issues. Much of the external work has been brought forward from next summer.”
