Tottenham’s first match at their new stadium could be against Bournemouth on Boxing Day after the club agreed to extend its agreement to play Premier League games at Wembley, according to the Daily Mail.
The report claims Spurs’ Wembley agreement now runs until December 15th, when the Londoners will face Burnley at the national stadium.
The next scheduled “home” game after that will see Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth travel to wherever Tottenham are situated at the time, which could well be the new White Hart Lane-based stadium.
Tottenham were originally set to play against Liverpool at the new ground on September 15th, but the fixture – along with various upcoming matches – was switched to Wembley due to safety concerns.
All of Spurs’ Champions League group stage games will now take place at Wembley, too, as the club continues to sweat on the readiness of its new home, which had also been tipped to be available for a London derby against Chelsea on November 24th.
What’s more, the Mail believes Daniel Levy has been warned there could come a time when Tottenham will have to commit to playing every Premier League game at the national stadium this season.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans are left waiting for updates amid the uncertainty.
