Spurs stadium finally ready next month
Construction manager Mace is finally set to hand over the £800m Tottenham Hotspur stadium ahead of test events later this month and its official opening in April.
Spurs will hold two test event matches with increasing levels of attendance on 24 March and 30 March in order to obtain a formal safety certificate.
Provided the club obtains that certificate, it will then play its first official matches at the new ground as early as 3 April.
The first official opening game is also subject to the outcome of Brighton & Hove Albion’s FA Cup match on 17 March.
If Brighton win their FA Cup quarter-final at Millwall, Spurs will play Crystal Palace on 3 April and Brighton on 23/24 April.
If the Seagulls lose that cup tie, Spurs will play Brighton at the new ground on 6/7 April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23/24 April.
The stadium was originally due to host its first match in September last year but was delayed after Mace announced that testing had uncovered “issues with the critical safety systems” and entered talks with Spurs about a revised timetable.
