    Tottenham’s stadium won’t be ready so Spurs will return to Wembley


    2018-19 Premier League fixture list

    This Thursday, on the same day that the 2018 World Cup kicks off in Russia, big news will come out from the Premier League.

    The Premier League will announce the first edition of the 2018-19 fixture list.

    Last season Tottenham played their home matches at Wembley Stadium.

    Spurs were hoping to avoid any hiccups as they plan to move into their new ground for the start of the new campaign. But will that happen?

    For the record, under Premier League rules, every club must play all ‘home’ games at the same ground, unless they receive special permission to do otherwise. No such permission has yet been granted.

    Tottenham’s stadium won’t be ready

    The Daily Mail’s Matt Law has dropped an ‘exclusive’ on Wednesday morning.

    Tottenham’s new stadium will not be ready for the start of the Premier League season.

    That means that Spurs will once again need to play Premier League ‘home’ games at Wembley. The Mail report:

    Tottenham look almost certain to play their first home game of next season at Wembley.

    Premier League clubs ‘support’ Spurs

    Yet it’s not all bad news for Tottenham.

    The Mail go on to announce that Tottenham are set to be granted special permission to play in the their new stadium once it’s ready.

    That’s after Tottenham’s Premier League rivals appear to have reached the following agreement:

    The Premier League will give Spurs their first three matches of the new season away from home, and they will be given permission to play away in the third round of the Carabao Cup. 

    Spurs are understood to have the support of other clubs in allowing them to switch home after the season has started.

    The Premier League are also keen to be supportive of any club looking to upgrade their stadium.

    On Wednesday the Evening Standard confirmed that Tottenham have until Friday to tell the Premier League if their new stadium will be ready for the start of the season.
