The north London club are edging closer to the move into their huge new arena
Tottenham Hotspur appear to be on the verge of announcing the first test event at their new stadium, according to reports.
The north London giants had been set to move into their new ground in September but substantial delays have set them back and the club have remained at Wembley much to the fans’ chagrin.
It’s believed 5,000 season ticket holders could win themselves a pass into the experience, which is likely to be a familiarisation affair to help club staff get used to the new 62,062 ground.
Football.London, meanwhile, understand it won’t be an opening training session – a previously mooted event – but it should be something which will start a series of tests.
In August the club had planned to hold an Under-18s match at the arena, along with a legends match with Bayern Munich, but it’s unclear whether this will remain the case.
The news is also likely to ramp up the theory their match with Manchester United on January 13 could open the arena, which is the fixture which closed White Hart Lane, offering the perfect chance for some symmetry.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino and some of his staff were treated to previews earlier this month and the Argentine has been impressed with what he saw.
“We were there, checking the facilities, the changing rooms and everything, We are so excited, we cannot wait to move there,” said Pochettino.
