Tottenham Hotspur are optimistic the first match at their new stadium will be against Brighton and Hove Albion on April 7th or Huddersfield Town on April 13th, according to the London Evening Standard.

If true, it means Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Arsenal may have been Spurs’ final domestic fixture of the season at Wembley.

The Standard claims test events are set to take place in late March and an announcement could be made this week to provide the Tottenham supporters with an update.

The report goes on to reveal that if Brighton beat Millwall in the FA Cup later this month, their meeting with Spurs will be re-scheduled – Mauricio Pochettino’s side would subsequently face Huddersfield in the first game at their new stadium a week later.

Tottenham have five home league games remaining this term and a potential Champions League quarter-final home leg if they overcome Borussia Dortmund tonight.

The Standard admits UEFA may be unwilling to allow Spurs’ first match at their new stadium to be a Champions League fixture. If they are willing, Tottenham could face a side from the continent before the Huddersfield game.
