Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium is edging ever closer to completion.
A club announcement provides an update on the work that has been taking place to rectify widespread issues with the problematic fire safety systems.
A Statement reads: “We can today report that remedial works on the safety systems in the new stadium are near completion and we shall then move forward to the final stages of testing the fire detection and alarm system and its integration with the other safety systems.
The success of this testing is critical to our ability to obtain a safety certificate and open the stadium.
We can confirm, therefore, that we shall play our Premier League match against Arsenal on Saturday 2 March at 12.30pm at Wembley Stadium.
Daniel Levy, Chairman, said: “Once again, thank you all for bearing with us and for the great support we have received from so many different quarters. These next few weeks are pivotal.”
We shall provide a further update in due course. Ticketing and refund details for the Arsenal fixture will follow shortly.”
