Tottenham Hotspur’s brand new 62,000 seat stadium has hit the headlines in a negative way this summer, with repeated delays frustrating fans.

The £800m stadium was supposed to be opened on September 15 against Liverpool, but faults in the fire safety systems have delayed this grand opening for the foreseeable future.

Daniel Levy has now extended Tottenham’s stay at Wembley until December 15, but hopes that the team will move into their new ground before this.

The delays may have come as a surprise to some fans, but Multiplex, the contractor firm who put in the second-placed bid for the stadium build knew from the start.

The job was eventually given to Mace, who are now struggling to meet deadlines after electrical faults.

Multiplex’s original bid offered an estimated delivery date on December 2018, which looks to now be the likely completion after all.

Mace had promised completion by July this year.

The earliest that the stadium will now open is November 24 against Chelsea.
