Tottenham’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium has been delayed for some time now, with initial reported issues announced on the 13th of August.
Nearly a month on, and there is still no end in sight for the construction job… or is there?
The stadium contractors, Mace, revealed last month that the delays were down to electrical faults in the fire safety system, and later a burst water pipe.
However, in his latest statement, the club implied that the stadium could in fact be ready by October 29, Spurs’ fixture against Manchester City.
The City match has already been confirmed as a Wembley fixture for the sake of clarity, but if all goes to plan, it could prove to be Tottenham’s last Premier League game at the national stadium.
In their statement, Tottenham said this: “Despite the possibility that our new stadium could be ready to host this match, this would not be known until much closer to the date of the game. We have therefore agreed with the Premier League that, in the interests of clarity and certainty, we shall confirm this game as taking place at this time at Wembley Stadium so that fans of both teams can now make travel arrangements accordingly.”
So there you go, Spurs fans, it may be possible that your stadium isn’t too far away after all.
