Tottenham Unable To Confirm Whether New Stadium Will Be Ready By '18 Season Opener
Tottenham is "in a race against the clock" to complete its new stadium by the start of next season, according to Steve Bates of the London DAILY MIRROR. Club Chair Daniel Levy and Manager Mauricio Pochettino "were updated on progress during a tour of the 61,559-capacity arena on Friday." But the club is "still unable to say if it will be ready to host the opening games of next season." It has "already spoken to the Premier League about rearranging some early fixtures," but has been told there is "only limited scope for home matches to be pushed back." A later start to the season following the World Cup will buy Spurs "some extra breathing space" (DAILY MIRROR, 10/14).
