Tottenham Hotspur fans will finally get to watch a competitive match in the new stadium tomorrow night, putting an end to the six months of waiting.
The stadium opening was initially promised back in September 2018 with a bumper match against Liverpool scheduled, however this never came to fruition.
Delays pushed the date back further and further, with the Tottenham faithful becoming more and more fed up with Wembley by the week.
The two test events held over the past two weekends have been a huge boost for the club in a time of Premier League turmoil, as the first team have taken just one point from their last 15.
Hopefully the move into the new ground, and subsequent five homes games there this season, will help Spurs to improve their form and secure Champions League football next season.
This brings a close to Daniel Levy’s long term plan to build a new training centre and stadium for the club, and Pochettino has revealed just how long the chairman has been planning the project.
Poch said (Football London): “It’s going to be very special, at last the new stadium is a reality. Now it’s so close, just over 24 hours until we play in our new home. It’s an exciting moment in the history of the club. Everyone will realise tomorrow the magnitude of the project. I was talking with Daniel before. When he and all the people started to think about the new project in 2001 after 18 years that dream has become a reality. It’s amazing, an exciting moment for our fans and players but it is special moment for Daniel Levy our chairman. He started with this idea and had the vision to deliver it.”
