Tottenham Hotspur apologise offer season ticket credit over stadium delay

Spurs confirm stadium opening delay

On Monday, Spurs announced that their first two games at the new venue, against Liverpool on September 15 and Cardiff on October 6, had been switched to Wembley, where they played home games last season.

Their 28 October home match against Manchester City could present a problem for Tottenham if their overhauled home is not ready at that stage. He has built a no-nonsense reputation for getting things done during a successful reign at Spurs that is the longest-serving of any Premier League chairman.

The Premier League club have been forced to postpone the scheduled opening of the rebuilt area next month due to safety issues.

It would also see City play four of their final five league games away from home - putting them at a clear disadvantage. That won't be allowed'.

Tottenham Hotspur must tell Uefa within a fortnight where they will play their home group games in the Champions League, making it increasingly likely that they will all be staged at Wembley because of the delays in construction of their new home.

Tottenham would have to ask UEFA not to give them a home game that week because the National Football League would already have started preparations for the game at Wembley on October 28.

The club is now holding urgent talks with main contractor Mace and its subcontractors.

Spurs will not move into their new stadium until mid-October at the earliest, owing to "issues with critical safety systems". We are reviewing the situation and planned timetable to rectify and re-test, after which we shall be in a better position to outline a revised timetable.

The redevelopment of White Hart Lane was scheduled to be completed in time for Spurs to host Liverpool on September 15.
