Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed via their official site that their first Premier League fixture in the new stadium will take place against Crystal Palace.
After Brighton’s penalty shoot out win against Millwall in the FA Cup quarter final, Spurs will now officially open the stadium for the visit of Roy Hodgson’s side on Wednesday April 3rd, with a kick off time yet to be confirmed.
In order to gain a safety certificate for the full 62,062 capacity match against Palace, Spurs will hold two test event matches this month with increasing levels of attendances.
Sunday 24 March – Test Event Match One – Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton, U18 Premier League Match, kick-off 3pm – Capacity circa 30,000 general admission and selected premium areas
Saturday 30 March – Test Event Match Two – Tottenham Hotspur Legends match, kick-off 5.30pm – Capacity circa 45,000 general admission and all premium areas
The visit of Palace to the new stadium will be followed by the first leg of our UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Manchester City, kick-off 8pm.
The home fixture against Brighton in the Premier League will now take place on either Tuesday 23 or Wednesday 24 April.
