Tottenham extend Wembley stay as wait for new stadium goes on

Tottenham announced on Wednesday they will stay at Wembley until at least the end of February as their frustrating wait to move into their new stadium goes on.

These delays could ensure a mouth-watering north London derby against Arsenal is the first to be hosted at the new White Hart Lane on March 2, although a further update is anticipated in the coming weeks.

As such, the club confirmed that Premier League matches against Watford, Newcastle and Leicester, along with a Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund, will all take place at Wembley.

Should Tottenham progress to the fifth round of the FA Cup and are drawn at home on the weekend of February 16-17, that match would also be played at Wembley.

The club have also said a potential FA Cup fifth-round home draw over the weekend of February 16-17 would be played at the national stadium.

English soccer outfit Tottenham Hotspur could make their long-awaited move to their new stadium in time to face Premier League rivals Crystal Palace on 16th March, according to United Kingdom newspaper the Daily Mail.

"The response from those who attended the familiarisation event was great to hear and reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone". All three matches will be Category C pricing from the 2017/18 season.

At the beginning of the season Tottenham agreed to start the season at Wembley for a game or two.Now we're in January and like the member of family you can't get rid of around Christmas time they're still there.

"We are now liaising with the contractors and building control at Haringey Council to determine a schedule of commissioning, building test dates and building control sign-offs, along with formal test event dates". The 51,000 capacity cap will apply for these fixtures.

The 62,000 seater stadium was due to open on 16 September 2018 against Liverpool in what would have been their first Premier League game at their new home.
