The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium will open next month, the club has announced.
Spurs’ first league game will either be played at the venue against Crystal Palace on 3 April or Brighton on 6 or 7 April.
The fixture will depend on whether Brighton qualify for the next round of the FA Cup, which would be held on the first weekend of April.
Two test events, required in order for the stadium to get a safety certificate, are scheduled for 24 and 30 March, featuring a youth and retired players’ team respectively.
The stadium will open seven months later than scheduled, with the project hit by repeated delays.
Sources told Construction News last year that an unclear management structure, at times chaotic organisation and poor communication led to mistakes – often by electrical subcontractors.
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said in a message to fans on Friday night: “Your support has been much appreciated during a challenging but exciting time.”
In January, CN exclusively revealed that construction manager Mace had so far received £100m for its work on the stadium.
