White Hart Pain: Odds slashed on no Spurs games at new stadium in 2018

Known for leaving their transfer business to the last minute, work on Spurs' new home is set to continue well past this deadline...


Following reports on the delay of the opening of Tottenham’s new stadium, we have slashed the odds of no matches to be played there this year from 7/1 to 9/4.

At least two Premier League games, as well as an NFL fixture, have both been moved to Wembley due to issues with ‘critical safety systems’.

Meanwhile, with the new ground said to be nowhere near completion, it is EVENS that Spurs are forced to play ALL of their home Champions League group games at the national stadium.

And, with 15,000 seats yet to be installed in the ground at the new White Hart Lane, it’s 25/1 that Tottenham do not play there for the remainder of the 18/19 season.

Our own Paddy Power said: “With no summer signings, and a stadium which is taking longer to build than the Sagrada Familia, it’s a frustrating time to be a Tottenham fan.

“With Liverpool, Cardiff and an NFL fixture all delayed at the new ground, we’ve had to cut the odds of no games to be played there this year.”


EVENS – All Champions League group games to be played at Wembley
9/4 – No games to be played at the new stadium in 2018
25/1 – Spurs not to play there for the remainder of the 18/19 season
500/1 – Tottenham to purchase Wembley stadium
500/1 – Building to be halted altogether on the new stadium
