Tottenham Hotspur have had to play all their home games at Wembley Stadium from the beginning of last season.
While Spurs fans expected the club to move into their new stadium early this season, the move hasn’t materialised due to delays in the completion of their new ground.
In fact, the club still hasn’t provided confirmation on when Spurs will move back to North London, with the club previously confirming that all matches up until the end of February will be held at the national stadium.
This has understandably caused ‘Wembley fatigue’ among fans of the Lillywhites as attendance figures have dwindled over the past few months, coupled with attendance limits. The low attendance at games this season has lead opposition fans to unfairly question if Tottenham will able to regularly fill their new 62,062 capacity stadium.
A stat that has been recently released by UEFA suggests that Tottenham will have no problem selling out the new stadium for all their games.
According to European football’s governing body, Tottenham had the third highest cumulative attendance for their home games across all the clubs in Europe last season, with an average attendance of 67,953 per match.

If Tottenham are able to pull an average of almost 68,000 people per game at Wembley, then they will have no trouble at all attracting an equivalent number when the team moves back home.
