Tottenham Hotspur supporters have probably been the most patient fanbase in the Premier League this season, and they are still waiting to this day for their new stadium.

The ground was supposed to open on September 15 against Liverpool, but delay after delay pushed this date back.

The stadium is now expected to open in March 2019 at best, but the real grand opening could even be beyond this.

However, the latest report out of the Daily Mail claims that the stadium won’t be entirely finished this season no matter what.

The reports says that even if the 62,062 seater ground does open its doors, there will be elements of ‘finishing touches’ that would still need to be added.

As long as Spurs can provide a home with functioning facilities that has passed health and safety regulations, they will be good to go.

It still remains to be seen when the ground will actually finally open.

A Daily Mail source close to the stadium build said: “There are large areas that will simply not be finished in time.

“But if you can safely get fans in and out, provide toilets and food, the stadium could still host games before the end of the season, even while the finishing touches remain. The vast majority of the hospitality lounges are ready to go.”
