Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will not be ready until 2019, Daniel Levy has confirmed.

In his latest statement to the fans, the Spurs chairman provided an apology for the continued setbacks, saying:

“In light of the above, and taking into account the restricted availability of manpower over the festive period, we have taken the decision to confirm today that all home games will be played at Wembley Stadium up to and including the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 29 December.

“We know the continued delay is a source of immense disappointment to everyone and I can only continue to apologise for this – it is a sentiment felt by all of us.

“We have not stood still whilst work on the critical safety systems has been happening and we have sought to use the time to bring forward future works.”

It looks likely that Spurs’ first game at their new permanent home will be against Manchester United, with their first game of 2019 being away to Cardiff City on New Year’s Day.
