Tottenham Hotspur Stadium Will Open in 2018, Mauricio Pochettino Maintains

The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at White Hart Lane has seen its opening delayed at least a couple times, but Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino remains hopeful about the timeline.

Then we were told it could be ready for the Manchester City contest on October 29th, or perhaps just after that in November. Now it’s realistically looking like January 2019, although the THFC party line still claims 2018 is possible. Pochettino, speaking ahead of a League Cup clash that Spurs will “host” at Milton Keynes, 50 miles outside of London, says he’s confident the new facility will be christened in 2018.
