Spurs fans have been understandably impatient in recent weeks and months as their expected move-in date to their new 62,062-l seater capacity stadium keeps getting delayed.

The club first announced that Spurs’ fixture against Liverpool on September 15th of last year would be the first game at the new ground.

However, due to issues with the critical safety systems, Spurs are still playing their home games at Wembley nearly five months later. Many fans have also got a clear case of Wembley fatigue as attendances have dropped substantially at the national stadium compared to last season.

However, if reports are to be believed, Spurs fans might finally get confirmation of the first game to be played at the new stadium. The Daily Mail reports that the club will confirm next week that the first game at the new stadium would either be the one against Crystal Palace on March 17 or Brighton on April 6.

Both of these matches could be rescheduled if Palace or Brighton progress further in the FA Cup. If these reports are indeed true, then it is likely that the club will soon host test events, thus giving some more fans a glimpse of the state of the art facility.
