Tottenham Hotspur plan to open new stadium in April after test events
Tottenham Hotspur have announced details of two test events to take place at their new stadium date paving the way for the venue to stage its first competitive game in April.
The stadium was originally due to open ahead of the 2018-19 Premier League season, but the project has been hit with delays and Spurs have continued to play their home matches in all competitions at Wembley Stadium.
Two successful test events with increasing levels of capacity are required to be played for the stadium to receive a safety certificate from Haringey Council.
However, the club confirmed it hopes the first league match at the new ground will be played in April, subject to obtaining the safety certificate.
They will be an Under-18 Premier League game against Southampton, with a capacity of around 30,000, on Sunday 24 March and a Tottenham Hotspur Legends match, with a capacity of around 45,000, on Saturday 30 March.
