Spurs to play home games at Wembley

Tottenham will play all of their home games at Wembley next season while construction work takes place on their new stadium.

A new 61,000-seater ground is being built next to Spurs’ current White Hart Lane home, with an estimated £750million being spent on the arena.

While that is taking place, Spurs’ home games during 2017-18 will be held at Wembley Stadium – where Mauricio Pochettino’s side played their Champions League and Europa League ties earlier this season.

"This is an incredibly exciting time in the history of the club," said club chairman Daniel Levy in a statement.

"Wembley will be our home for a season and then we will return to what will be one of the best stadiums of its kind and the most unique in the world playing host to NFL (American football) games too – a stadium that will be key to our future growth and success."

However, Wembley has not proved to be a happy hunting ground for Spurs this season.

They won only one of their four European ties there and succumbed to Chelsea in last weekend’s FA Cup semi-final.
