Tottenham Move Back To Wembley Over New Stadium 'Safety Concerns'

Tottenham have had to delay the launch of their new stadium for more than two months just a fortnight before they were expected to host their first match there.

Ongoing tests in the build-up to their return to the new stadium have discovered issues with "critical safety systems," the club admitted yesterday.

Matches against Liverpool on September 15 and Cardiff on October 6 have been moved to Wembley already.

More embarrassing is the failure to have the stadium operational in time for its inaugural NFL match, scheduled for October 14, which will now also be switched across London to the national stadium.

Even the game against Manchester City on October 28 is still only pencilled in at this stage, and having been forced to start their Champions League campaign at Wembley, too, Spurs could be committed to hosting all games in the competition with UEFA rules clear that in principle they expect teams to use the same venue throughout.

At least the FA confirmed last night that there will be no issues with Tottenham hosting any of their matches at Wembley this season.

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy said: “We know this will be disappointing  but at the start of the project we asked for your support during what we knew would be a complex and challenging build and now we ask for your continued patience and forbearance.”

The club are currently holding urgent meetings with main contractors Mace and other trade workers employed on site in the hope of determining a clearer picture of when the ground will finally be ready for use.
