Tottenham take a step closer to Wembley move


You could hardly blame Tottenham if they were thinking twice about their switch to Wembley next season.

After the demolition of White Hart Lane, Spurs will be without a ground for a season until their new stadium is opened in 2018.

Their recent history at Wembley has been absolutely awful, and if their European games there this term are anything to go by, they’re in for a pretty rough ride.

The one positive from those games was that they all sold out, even the Europa League clash with Gent.

That means the Lilywhites will be all the more confident that they can play to full capacity in their Premier League games over the course of the 2017/2018 campaign.


Brent Council have now given their backing for exactly that, as reported in the London Evening Standard.

Wembley have asked for another 22 events with 90,000 seats available.

It finally puts to bed rumours that Spurs could play at the Lane for another season. More nostalgic fans may be disappointed to hear that, but at least it means the club’s immediate future is close to being sorted.
