Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium has been plagued with delays almost since building began.

The state of the art ground was originally supposed to open against Liverpool on September 15, but delays put a stop to this.

The Independent report Tottenham are currently aiming for December 15 against Burnley as a new grand opening date.

To achieve this goal, they will have to pass two safety checks between now and that match.

Although currently listed to be played at the new ground, Spurs are expected to announce the Chelsea and Southampton fixtures are to be moved to Wembley.

They will then concentrate on getting the fire safety systems running smoothly in time for the first test in late November.

This first test is for 30,000 people, with a second one being for a capacity of 48,000 in early December.

Spurs will not be able to open the stadium by December 15 without passing both of these test events.
