Tottenham will be playing all their remaining Premier League and Champions League home games at the new stadium.

The 62,062-capacity venue has hosted two test events, the most recent of which saw a Tottenham legends team take on their Inter Milan counterparts on Saturday.

The stadium has received rave reviews from the fans as well as former players who have experienced it, with many including Pochettino labeling it the best stadium in the world.

Crystal Palace will be the first visitors to the venue on the 3rd of April.

The Spurs players who have trained at the stadium have also reacted very positively to it.

Tottenham attacker Son Heung-Min has now admitted that it is great to finally be back home.

The South Korean, who has had yet another prolific season in front of goal, has said that while he still misses White Hart Lane it’s up to the players to make history at the new venue.

Speaking to the Guardian, the 26-year-old said, “When I was young, I watched White Hart Lane. It’s in my head. They’ve changed the building and so for me [he exhales] … crazy things.

“The Tottenham of White Hart Lane was a special thing but now we have to make history with the new stadium.

“Of course, I miss White Hart Lane but the new stadium is amazing – the pitch, the view, the stands; it’s just unbelievable. Finally, we are coming back home and it’s great to be here again with the fans.

“They were tired, as well, with Wembley. Of course, Wembley is a very nice stadium but it’s not actually our home.

“I think the fans are very happy, like us. The most important thing now is our performances in the new stadium.”
