It’s official: Tottenham will make Wembley its home for the 2017/2018 season. The club announced today that as the new stadium is finished all of our home games next season will be played at Wembley. This has been the rumor swirling around since the announcement that we would be building a new stadium and have to knockdown White Hart Lane to complete it.
We can confirm that, following a Board meeting today, we’ve taken the decision to activate our option with Wembley National Stadium Limited. pic.twitter.com/DuQZsPedOB— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) April 28, 2017
This news may not come with much joy to some. We played our Champions League games in Wembley this year and did not play very well. Just recently we were eliminated from the FA Cup in Wembley by Chelsea in an awful showing from Spurs. Hopefully our form in Wembley improves or we are going to have quite a rough season. The good news is that Wembley can fit up to 90,000 people so at least we can boast of having the biggest football stadium in Europe for a season.
