Tottenham to play first home game at Wembley — UEFA Champions League

Tottenham to play Champions League opener at Wembley

A venue for Spurs' Premier League game against champions Manchester City on 28 October is still to be confirmed.

However, delays meant that they had to play their first few home games of the season at Wembley, and further delays have created uncertainty over when the club will be able to move into their new stadium.

"We have agreed with UEFA that the first home match day of this season's Champions League group stage, scheduled on either match day one (week commencing September 17) or match day two (week commencing October 1), will be staged at Wembley Stadium", read a Tottenham statement.

Spurs had already revealed they were due to play at the ground until at least October 6 when they take on Cardiff at home in the Premier League.

Manchester City's problematic away fixture against Tottenham in October may finally have a resolution after rumours that a stadium like Twickenham could host it, with Spurs' new stadium not ready and Wembley scheduled to host an National Football League game on Sunday October 28.

The Lilywhites are now without a permanent home ground due to construction delays at the 62,000-capacity "Tottenham Hotspur Stadium".

The Mauricio Pochettino's side were initially scheduled to play their first game at the new 62,000-capacity White Hart Lane venue on September 15 against Liverpool.

The Football League confirmed on Monday that Spurs would be allowed to reverse their Carabao Cup third-round fixture and play away from home or at a neutral venue should they be drawn at home while the new White Hart Lane is being finished.
