After hefty delays to Tottenham’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium, the fate of many fixtures in the foreseeable future were largely unknown, including a huge clash with holders Manchester City.

Fixtures against Liverpool and Cardiff were moved to the national stadium weeks ago, with the City game marked as TBC.

Unfortunately Wembley is already in use on the weekend in question, with the Premier League and Man City not keen on reversing or rescheduling the fixture.

However, a decision has finally been met, as Tottenham will take to the national pitch just 24 hours after a big NFL game is scheduled to be played there.

The Spurs v Man City game will now be played on Monday 29 October, with the kick off at 8pm.

This is a day later than the original date of Sunday 28 October, but the game will still be shown on SkySports.

The club had this to say in a statement: “We should like to apologise to both our and Manchester City fans for this fixture having to be moved to a weekday evening and any inconvenience caused.

“We shall be refunding our season ticket holders for this match 1/19th of their new stadium season ticket price and, although this is a Category A game, given the extraordinary circumstances of this late fixture date change to a weekday, we shall be offering season ticket holders the opportunity to purchase tickets for the match at Category B prices.

“We should like to thank the Football Association, Premier League, Sky Sports and Manchester City for their cooperation during this challenging time for all of us in what are unique circumstances.”
