Breaking Angles: The New White Hart Lane Completion Gets Pushed Back


Estimated Reading Time: 1 Minutes

While their team is excelling on the pitch, their new home is failing to finish construction for at least another three months.

Tottenham Hotspur officials announced on January 9th, that the new White Hart Lane would not be completed until March. The first potential home game at their new stadium would take place March 16th against Crystal Palace.

The initial completion date was September of 2018, with the stadiums features being touted as some of the best the football world would ever see. September came and went, and Tottenham is still playing their home games at Wembley Stadium, with construction delays playing the culprit.

Until then, home matches will continue to take place at Wembley Stadium. Top flight matches against Newcastle, Leicester, and Watford are still set to be played at the Football Association owned stadium.

During this week’s announcement, Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy expressed his condolenses to avid Spurs fans, clamoring to see their Spurs play in their new home. “I should like to apologize to our fans,” Levy said. “And thank you for your continued patience.”

Although construction continues, a few thousand season ticket holders were granted the opportunity to check out the new stadium in an event meant to familiarize fans with the new White Hart Lane.

“The response from those who attended the familiarization event was great to hear,” added Levy. He further added that the event “reinforced our commitment to deliver an exceptional matchday experience for everyone.”

So what comes next? When can the Spurs finally move home? Daniel Levy says he’ll let the public know.

“We shall now seek clarity in respect of building test schedules and test event dates and provide further information on these in the next two to three weeks.”

Daniel, I think I can speak for our #Footie writers when I say “COME ON YOU SPURS… management!”
