Tottenham Extend Wembley Stadium Stay Till 2019

Tottenham will continue to host matches at Wembley Stadium until at least the end of the year as the opening date of their new home venue remains a mystery.


Construction deadlines have been repeatedly missed and chairman Daniel Levy confirmed the delays will push completion into 2019.


Grass was laid at the new ground in early October but the club’s next eight home fixtures are certain to be played at Wembley after Spurs encountered problems out of their control.


While Tottenham will continue to push for a completion date, the club have decided to extend their Wembley stay to ensure supporters have clarity about their upcoming home matches.


“I wish I was able to confirm an exact opening date and fixture,” the chairman said in a statement.


“However, in light of factors completely outside of our control, contractors missing deadlines and possible future unforeseen issues, we are naturally being cautious in respect of our timetable for our test events and official opening game.”
