Tottenham Hotspur fans may have enjoyed their brief spell at the new stadium towards the end of last season, but they will now be looking forward to their first full campaign in the ground.

It opened on April 3rd 2019 in a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace, with Heung Min Son scoring the first ever professional goal at the stadium.

This grand opening came two years after building commenced and six months after the stadium was originally set to open against Liverpool on September 15 2018.

However, the work did not finish for Daniel Levy’s project the moment the opening ceremony commenced, as Spurs must still prove the stadium’s efficiency ahead of the new season.

Football London report that further work on the management system inside the ground was needed over the summer, and Haringey Council officers are now inspecting the ground regularly.

It will be up to these officers as to whether the stadium can open for the new season, but the report claims that Spurs are confident they can get the needed work done in time.

Spurs Web Opinion:

After the time Daniel Levy and the construction team took getting things just right before opening last season, I don’t expect these minor changes to cause any disruption to the 2019/20 campaign. If there was any slight worry, we would have heard something about back-up plans being put in place.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. You must be joking about being informed by Levy – last April we were starting the season in New Ground before about 5 late advices drip fed delays
