When will Tottenham Hotspur play at their new ground? Premier League London derby with Chelsea lined up for first clash


LONDON CALLING

Spurs are yet to move into their new home, but could welcome rivals Chelsea to their new ground on November 24

Tottenham Hotspur could be set to play their first game at their new stadium in a huge London derby against Chelsea.

The £850million project has overrun slightly due to financial complications and technical difficulties, but could be set to finally open.

Manchester City will have to return to Wembley for their clash against Spurs on October 29, and will have to play all three Champions League home games at Wembley.

However, in just 12 weeks time, the club could be set to open their doors with a potential cracker before Christmas against the Blues.

According to The Sun, Spurs were due to open the 62,000-seater venue against Liverpool on September 15, but the completion was delayed indefinitely due to “issues with critical safety systems.”

Their opening home clash against Fulham was played at Wembley – their home venue for the entirety of last season.

Such a high-profile and potentially volatile opening game will no doubt worry police and officials, but it is understood the clash against Chelsea is seen as more-high profile opening than fixtures against Southampton or Burnley.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy admitted yesterday the delay in the opening of the new stadium had resulted in “substantial additional costs” and they wanted it up and running at “the earliest opportunity.”

He added: “We are now being regularly updated on progress and as soon as we have confidence in our project managers’ and contractors’ ability to deliver against the revised schedule of works, we shall be able to issue dates for test events and the official opening game.

“We are facing many issues, but although disappointing, costly and frustrating, I am uncompromising in my determination to deliver something extraordinary to our fans.”
