Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently building a 62,000-seater stadium, have until March to inform the English Premier League if the new stadium would be ready in time for the next season, according to reports. The club recently released official videos and pictures of work done on the stadium. They could be forced to start the 2018/2019 season playing away from home due to delay caused by the British weather.
The new White Hart Lane is a mega project for the club and one of many that would launch them as global brands. Work has been progressing fine but unexpected weather conditions has caused come sort of slowdown. Further delay in the current schedule would see the club start games away from home when the new season gets underway. Liverpool and West Ham plied the same route recently and with the way work is going, Spurs would have to go the same route.
The project reported worth £850 million could still meet the deadlines but the new few weeks would be key, with the weather playing an important role. Already the £20 million roof is being fitted in, with the club describing it as a key milestone in the project. Glass panels are also being installed on one side of the stadium. The rest of the panels are expected to be fitted before the end of the current season.
The club chief Daniel Levy is hoping the stadium will be ready at the start of the new season. The team is currently in fifth position in the league but they are only one point behind Chelsea. They are hoping to get Champions League qualification and play next season at their new home.
