Tottenham Hotspur fans have been waiting long enough for their brand new 62,000 seat stadium to open, with delays pushing the first game back further and further.
The original date was set as September 15 against Liverpool, which would have been a cracking opening fixture, but it wasn’t to be.
Issues with the fire safety systems, and a requirement for two test events before opening have hampered attempts to host a Premier League match.
With under 10 games left of the Prem season, it really is now or never for the Tottenham hierarchy, or else they risk pushing the Premier League one step too far.
Famous sports journalist Martin Samuel believes he has uncovered a hint that Spurs will be opening the stadium in April 2019 (Daily Mail).
He says that Tottenham employees have been told to expect a move back home in April, with Wembley also being notified of this plan.
Just one more month Spurs fans.
Samuel wrote: ‘Tottenham’s employees are being told to expect to return home in April, and Wembley are on notice, too; but this will require test events and a degree of certainty in the planning that is not around at this stage of the season.’
