Tottenham Hotspur have been playing their home matches at Wembley Stadium for well over a year now, and have enjoyed a pretty impressive record at the national ground.

However, Wembley will never be home, and Spurs will be unable to switch off that desire to move into their brand new 62,000 seat stadium.

Spurs offered an update on the stadium situation this morning, revealing a contingency plan at Wembley.

Daniel Levy agreed to play games at Wembley until December 15, but Spurs will obviously now need far longer in the ground as their own stadium won’t be done until 2019.

The club have now agreed a contingency with Wembley that allows them to play there indefinitely until the new stadium is completed.

However, due to restrictions on capacity at Wembley, with only a certain number of games allowed at the full 90,000, Spurs will be forced to play with a severely reduced number of fans.

This reduced capacity sits at 51,000 per game. A planning application to Brent Council may increase this number to 62,000 to match the new stadium, with additional rare exceptions of 90,000 for bigger games.

The club also stated they would issue a new stadium update in early December.
