Tottenham’s participation in the Europa League Conference play-offs on the preceding Thursdays has meant that the match against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux will now take place at 2pm on Sunday, 22nd August.
The home fixture against top flight newcomers Watford, which could also see Danny Rose’s first return to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will now be held on Sunday, August 29th with a 2pm kick-off.

The Europa Conference League is a new competition for this season with UEFA having decided to streamline the Europa League, with the second-tier competition being reduced from 48 to 32 teams.
In all, 184 teams will be involved in the Europa Conference League over the course of the season, including at least one from each of the 55 associations.
The competition will consist of three qualifying rounds, followed by a play-off round before the 32-team group stage.
