Tottenham Sign Deal To Stay At Wembley If Their New Stadium Is Still Not Ready By New Year

Tottenham Sign Deal To Stay At Wembley If Their New Stadium Is Still Not Ready By New Year
11/12/2018
Tottenham have agreed a contingency plan with the Football Association that will allow them to remain at Wembley for the remainder of this season. 
With concerns remaining over whether Tottenham's new stadium will be open before May, the FA have made a submission to Brent Council for a variation on the current event cap agreement.

The restriction on the number of full capacity events at Wembley means the capacity will be capped at 51,000 after Spurs meet Chelsea on November 24. The FA have requested that the number be increased from January to 62,000 with an allowance for some additional 90,000 capacity events.

A statement from Tottenham said:
"Whilst Wembley National Stadium Ltd has been able to assign us a number of full capacity games, the restriction on the number of full capacity events available to WNSL each year means that our remaining Premier League fixtures after Chelsea will be capped at 51,000 unless otherwise advised.

"Special dispensation was granted by Brent Council for the 2017-18 season for WNSL to be permitted to increase the number of events at full capacity as a result of our temporary relocation for the entire season.

"As a contingency measure to ensure we can stage our matches whilst we await certainty on the exact opening date of our new stadium, the Club has reached agreement with WNSL to host any additional home games that we may have to play at Wembley Stadium. "

"Additionally, WNSL will submit a planning application to Brent Council for a variation on the cap for our games in the event we require them. The application will be for games to be at a capacity of 62,000, with additional limited exceptions at 90,000.

"As announced previously, we shall look to provide a further update on stadium progress in early December."
A statement from a Wembley Stadium spokesperson said:
"We can confirm that we have an agreement in place with Tottenham Hotspur to host any additional 2018-19 home games that they may have to play at Wembley Stadium, should they need the option.

"To plan for this, we have made a submission as a contingency on behalf of Tottenham Hotspur to Brent Council for a variation to the event cap, which if approved would come into effect from late January, for their matches to be played at a capacity of 62,000, with limited games at 90,000."
