Confirmed: Tottenham fans handed key update on major development for 2018/19 campaign
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has said that the club can be expected to play their first games of the 2018/19 season away from home as they look to complete construction of their new stadium on time.
The Lilywhites left their traditional home of White Hart Lane at the end of the last campaign, taking up a season-long residence at the English national stadium of Wembley as they worked on building a new 60,000-seat venue for the start of next season.
As revealed via the minutes of the meeting between the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters Trust and the club’s board, as laid out on the THST website, Levy confirmed that he was feeling confident over the major development being completed on time, although admitted that fans would likely be travelling to a handful of away games for their first fixtures come August, as was the case with West Ham this season.
He also stated that there would be huge disappointment if the stadium was not completed in time for next season, although was unwilling to deliver an exact date for completion as a result of the complexities surrounding the build, and revealed that contingency plans had been set out in case there were any delays in the multi-million pound project.
