Spurs agree Wembley deal in case stadium delay goes on

Tottenham Hotspur FC has reached an agreement to use Wembley Stadium for any additional games it may have to play there should its new ground be further delayed.

The contingency measure gives the club a venue to host matches while it “awaits certainty” on the exact opening date of its new ground.

The club announced last month that its new £850m stadium will not open until 2019.

Spurs have yet to provide a definite opening date for their new stadium, but have confirmed all their fixtures up until the game against Wolves on 29 December will be held at Wembley.

The club is due to provide a further update on the stadium’s progress in “early December”.

Full story: Inside Spurs’ new stadium

CN exclusively reveals allegations that site chaos, confusion and ill-discipline lie behind the delays to Tottenham Hotspur’s £850m stadium.

In September, insiders on the project exclusively revealed to CN that they believed the scheme was headed for a January finish.

The sources added that they would not be surprised if the club “wrote off the season”, playing the remainder of the team’s 2018/19 fixtures at Wembley in anticipation of a summer completion date.

This was followed by insiders telling CN the club was pushing for a December completion date, but that this target was “optimistic”, despite certain areas being handed over to the club.
