Another day, another report of Tottenham stadium delays.
This weekend’s top of the table clash against Liverpool marks the date that the Spurs stadium was originally scheduled to open on, but delays have put a stop to any plans of a grand opening.
Issues with the fire safety system electrics were the apparent original cause of the delays, according to contractor Mace.
Daniel Levy recently extended Tottenham’s Wembley stay until December 15, but had hoped that they would be in their new 62,000 seat ground before that date.
However, if recent reports are to be believed, Spurs will now be playing at the national stadium until March at the very earliest.
Love Sport Radio have reported that a source with ‘intimate knowledge of the construction process’ at the new ground has revealed that the in-stadium sprinkler system will not be completed until March.
The sprinklers are designed to be activated in the event of a fire, but are causing issues at the build site.
Without these systems in place, there is no way that events can be held at the ground due to health and safety regulations.
If these reports are true, should Tottenham give up on their new stadium for this year and announce Wembley as their home for the entirety of the season?
Would this provide a greater sense of clarity for both the fans and the players and staff?
