Spurs' New Stadium May Not Be Ready Until 2019

Spurs' New Stadium May Not Be Ready Until 2019

Spurs may be dealt an even bigger blow in the quest to finally watch their team at their new home ground, as the opening date of 'Tottenham Hotspur Stadium' might be pushed as far as 2019.

Problems with the safety system mean that the opening date could be up to another six months.

Their opening home fixture against Fulham was supposed to be the only game they played at England's home ground, Wembley, but now the club have pushed the date back, with home matches against Liverpool (15 September) and Cardiff City (6 October) will also be played at Wembley.

According to the Mail on Sunday, the grand opening might be as late as February.

"The critical issues include [safety] systems. Some systems are incomplete or missing and nobody knows how long it is going to be," a source told the newspaper.

"Completion could run into next year, depending on what other issues crop up. A best guess is that this delay will be between three to six months. In addition, the cost of the build has already reached £1bn and it is difficult to predict what the final bill will be. The costs keep piling up."

"The chairman tried with the board to arrive on time, it's a massive effort, and that we cannot deliver for the Liverpool game is a massive disappointment for everyone."
