Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new stadium may not be ready until April as the club are still awaiting the results on safety checks.

The Evening Standard report that the results are due to be received today and that there will be an official announcement by the club to supporters at some point this week.

The 62,062 capacity seater stadium was due to open for the visit of Liverpool on September 15th of last year, only for issues with critical safety systems to delay the opening of the venue.

Should the result of the checks highlight there are still issues with the wiring and safety systems, it will mean that a further set of testing would be required later this month and the opening would be pushed back to April.

The visit of Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday, along with the Champions League home tie against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League have already been moved to Wembley.

It is expected that the North London derby against Arsenal on March 2nd will also be played at the national stadium following police advice.

If the safety checks prove to be successful, the club would have to arrange two test events to be held at the stadium before it can officially open for a competitive fixture.
