Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new stadium has been disappointment after disappointment for the club, players and fans so far this season.
The 62,000 seat ground was supposed to be ready for a grand opening against Liverpool on September 15, but delays put a stop to this plan, and still fans are waiting on a new completion date.
However, there have been major developments today, as reported by The Evening Standard, as Spurs look to be putting the finishing touches on their stadium.
Work to start laying the new pitch is thought to have started today, with the NFL pitch underneath already done. The turf that Tottenham will play on is to be laid upon retractable trays, to offer multi-purpose facilities at the new state-of-the-art stadium.
The three trays will retract underneath the south stand when NFL games are played.
The Evening Standard estimate that the pitch will need 4 weeks to bed-in, but at a push, it could be played on in two weeks if needed.
Pochettino claimed last week (as reported by The Express) that the stadium would likely be finished this year, and the Standard have earmarked the Burnley game on the 15th of December as a likely opening fixture.
