The new stadium has certainly been a long time coming for Spurs fans. The club was initially scheduled to move into their new 62,062-seater stadium in September of last year, but the move has been delayed endlessly due to issues with the circuitry systems at the new venue.

After a long wait, the club have officially confirmed that the new venue is now ready to host matches. Spurs announced that they will be playing all their remaining home games in the Premier League and the Champions League at the new venue provided they are issued a safety certificate.

The club have announced two test events, the first of which will be a U-18 game against Southampton on the 24th of March followed by a Tottenham legends match on the 30th of March. If all goes to plan, Tottenham will open their new stadium against Brighton on the 7th of April.

However, if the Seagulls should progress to the next round of the FA Cup, Spurs will play Crystal Palace on the 3rd of April. This arrangement is to ensure that Spurs play a Premier League game at their new ground before the Champions League quarterfinal tie.

Spurs fans who have been left frustrated by the long delay, reacted jubilantly to the announcement. Here’s how some fans reacted to the news on social media:




Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. if you ever watch the film ” the guard ” the comment is made about the value of a quantity of drugs —- is it the cost or is the street value ? — —- this comes to mind every time someone writes a piece about our new stadium as the cost varies from 750 k to 1 billion — knowing our chairman”s reputation i have no doubt that the main contractor will have to bear the lion”s share of additional costs arising from the delays —
    we do need to freshen up the squad in the summer and indeed add about 5/6 new faces and with a full preseason this time around we will have the opportunity in our new home to really challenge on all fronts — it would be a tragedy therefor to miss out on a top 4 spot so ” come on ye spurs “
