Tottenham Hotspur fans have been reacting to the breaking news this evening surrounding the new stadium.

The club have confirmed that they will be moving into the brand new 62,062 capacity seater stadium next month.

Who their first opponents are depends on Brighton’s FA Cup date.
If Brighton beat Millwall in the FA Cup on 17 March, Crystal Palace will be Spurs’ visitors on 3 April but if the they are knocked out, Chris Hughton’s side will be the opposition on 6 or 7 April.

Before Spurs are allowed to open the ground to for competitive matches, they said in a statement that two test events “with increasing levels of attendance” must be staged “in order to achieve a formal safety certificate”.

An under-18 fixture against Southampton on 24 March will see a capacity of around 30,000, before a legends match on 30 March will see around 45,000 fans granted admission to the state of the art stadium.

The stadium was originally scheduled to open on September 15th if last year for the visit of Liverpool, but has been delayed since due to issues with critical safety systems.
