The club are set to offer an update next month, but it is being reported that the likely opening date will be the north London derby

Tottenham supporters may have to wait until March for their new stadium to open.

The north London club were due to move into the redeveloped White Hart Lane in September but have been hit by a series of problems.

Spurs confirmed last month that their remaining games in 2018 will be played at Wembley, which has been their temporary base since the beginning of last season.

They have an agreement in place to stay at the national stadium for the rest of the 2018/19 campaign, but remain insistent it will be ready at some stage this term.

And, according to The Times, contractors on the project are working towards two different opening dates – the clash with Manchester United on January 13 and the derby with north London rivals Arsenal on March 2.

The report claims that the building companies involved believe the match against Arsenal is the most likely to be the first at the new stadium.

Spurs recently announced that their next six home matches will be played at Wembley, up to the visit of Wolves on December 29.

They are expected to offer an update on the new stadium at the start of next month.

When open, the 62,000-capacity venue will be one of the most state-of-the-art arenas in world sport.

Former chairman Lord Sugar had a tour of it recently and called it the ‘best in UK, Europe and possibly the world’.
