Tottenham Hotspur fans have been left frustrated by the continuous delays to the move in date to their new 62,062-seater stadium.

The club initially earmarked the home game against Liverpool on September 15th of last year as the first fixture at the new ground.

However, due to issues with the circuitry and safety systems, the club are still playing their home games at Wembley almost five months later.

The club finally made another announcement today about the progress at the new stadium, and it was bittersweet news for Spurs fans.

The club announced through their official website that remedial works on the safety systems are near completion and that they are ready to move towards the final stage of testing.

However, they also confirmed that the North London Derby on the 2nd of March will be played at Wembley as the new ground won’t be ready in time.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy once again thanked the fans for their patience.

He said, “Once again, thank you all for bearing with us and for the great support we have received from so many different quarters. These next few weeks are pivotal.”
