Spurs’ new stadium to open in April

09 March 2019

Should the club be granted its safety certificates after these games, their first home game could be the league game against Brighton which is now scheduled for April 7.

To achieve a formal safety certificate for fixtures to be held at the new stadium, Spurs are required to hold two Test Event matches.

Spurs will host two test events in late March to gain a safety certificate, after which they will face either Brighton or Crystal Palace at the new venue in the first week of April, subject to Brighton's progress in the FA Cup.

Who their first opponents are hinges on Brighton's FA Cup campaign.

Tottenham will play their Champions League quarter final at the new stadium as well after they beat German side Borrussia Dortmund 4-1 on aggregate to confirm their place.

Brighton and Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray believes that Crystal Palace should be higher than 13th in the Premier League table, as reported on the Brighton Independent. Uefa officials conducted a site visit on Friday.

The Spurs boss also stressed that he wants to try and help English football and reiterated that the presence of four English teams in the last eight would be a massive boost to the Premier League.

The statement added further If Brighton win their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17 March we shall play Crystal Palace on Wednesday 3 April and Brighton on 23/24 April.

Tottenham are keen to play a league match at the stadium ahead of that European fixture, which could be played the week commencing April 8 if Spurs are drawn at home first.

They will be an Under-18 Premier League game against Southampton, with a capacity of around 30,000, on March 24 and a Tottenham Hotspur Legends match, with a capacity of around 45,000, on March 30.
