Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium is slowly but surely inching towards completion after multiple delays over the past few months.
The stadium was supposed to open against Liverpool on September 15, but issues with the fire safety system made this an impossibility.
Rumours have it now that the ground will not be finished until early 2019, with Tottenham’s Wembley stay already extended to December 15.
However, some good news for Spurs fans, building contractors Mace have apparently announced that the new pitch is to be laid in October, which is now just a week away.
A permanent artificial NFL pitch has already been installed in the base of the stadium, with the retractable pitch trays now extended out across the ground, waiting for the Spurs turf.
Big metal structures have also been seen over the top of the retractable trays, which are said to be Stadium Grow Lighting systems, there to help the grass grow once it arrives on site.
Keep your eyes peeled on Spurs Web for images of the new pitch in the coming weeks!
