Daniel Levy has revealed he is confident Tottenham will be playing in their new stadium next season amid worries the venue won’t be ready for October’s NFL fixture between the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks.
The Spurs chairman was speaking at an event at which it was announced only one NFL game will take place at the new stadium in 2018.
Levy was asked if the venue will definitely be ready to host the match and next season’s Premier League campaign.
“Unless there are unforeseen circumstances, I am very confident, and I wouldn’t be sitting here today otherwise, saying that the season we are about to enter in August, we will be playing our games here from the start of next season,” he said. (Quotes via ESPN.)
“As far as the football side of this, as far as our fans are concerned they can relax. The NFL will have nothing to do with the soccer side,” Levy added.
Before the event, Levy spoke about Tottenham’s chances of retaining their key players in the summer, which you can read about here.
