Since Sunday’s fan familiarisation event, the headlines surrounding the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium have all been positive with those who stepped foot into the ground having only praise for the project.

However, less than 48 hours later there has been yet another negative story in the media regarding the 62,062 seater future home of Spurs.

According to a report in The Times, the wet weather over the past couple of days has highlighted that the roof above the single tier south stand is leaking.

Apparently, pools of water can be found on the floor of the 17,500 capacity stand.  Despite incurring delays to the project which scuppered the planned opening date against Liverpool on September 15th, ‘Tottenham sources’ are confident that the roof issue will not cause alarm for any further delays.

Tottenham have confirmed that they will use Wembley Stadium up until the Premier League visit of managerless Manchester United on January 13th.

The club are expecting a report from the stadium contractors on January 7th and will, in turn, provide supporters with a further update which will hopefully include a future opening date. 

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I’m no longer a season ticket holder so my opinion might not hold much but a beautiful stadium such as our new one was always going to go over time because it was always a two to three year project because it has to be perfect so don’t blame levy because he has done this for us he was just excited for us, just have our team in our hearts win or lose because we are Tottenham Hotspur’s
