Tottenham look to finally be winding up to a grand opening release date for their brand new 62,000 seat stadium.

The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was supposed to originally open on September 15, but delays have seen that date pushed back and back, further and further.

Despite rumours that the ground wouldn’t be ready until 2019, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has come out and claimed that the club are confident it will be finished this year.

This means that Tottenham fans could be taking their seats in the new stadium some time in the next three months, which is exciting news for all involved.

The state-of-the-art stadium is sure to be a big boost for everyone surrounding the club, and the local community, as the build will apparently bring in £293m to the local economy each year, as well as 3,500 jobs across the stadium scheme.

One of the chief engineers on the site believes that the stadium will be ‘the greatest that’s ever been built’.

Engineer Nick Cooper said this in a BBC report: “We’ve tried to do something in double time.

“If you look at any other project of this nature you wouldn’t have achieved as much as we’ve achieved with the stadium.

“Be patient with us, we understand the frustrations.”

Cooper also revealed that the pitch is set to be laid next week, could we be nearing a finishing date?
