Do Tottenham’s TV fixture dates shed any light on stadium opening date?

Tottenham have been plagued with delays when it comes to their brand new 62,000 seat stadium this summer.

The ground was supposed to originally open against Liverpool on September 15 but issues with the fire safety systems put a stop to this.

Since then, Spurs have been playing their home fixtures at Wembley, their home of last season.

Pochettino did let slip last month that the new stadium would be complete some time this year, and recent reports by The Telegraph have indicated December 15 against Burnley as a probable date.

However, Spurs have just announced their December and January fixture TV dates, showing every single game televised on Sky or BT.

Burnley is not there. Surely if Spurs had indicated this was the opening fixture for their new stadium, someone would have picked it up to televise it. Or maybe Tottenham have indicated to the Premier League that it is actually opening sooner or later?
