Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that their new stadium will not be ready to host competitive matches until at least March.

Spurs have revealed that they will play their the following games at Wembley Stadium including the Premier League matches against Watford (30 January), Newcastle United (2 February) and Leicester City (10 February) as well as the Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund (13 February).

The club had already confirmed that Sunday’s match against Manchester United would be held at the national stadium.

If Mauricio Pochettino’s side were to beat at Crystal Palace in the FA Cup fourth round on 26 January and are drawn at home in the next round, this would also be played at Wembley.

The first game in March is the visit of Arsenal, however, it is highly unlikely due to safety reasons that this would be the first game at the new 62,062 seater stadium.

Daniel Levy told the official Spurs site: “I should like to apologise to our fans and thank you for your continued patience. The response from those who attended the familiarisation event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone. We shall now seek clarity in respect of building test schedules and test event dates and provide further information on these in the next two to three weeks.”
