Why Tottenham will play all Champions League matches at Wembley


Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham Hotspur on Monday announced that they will play all their Champions League group matches at Wembley as they wait to move into their new stadium.

Spurs were initially scheduled to play their first game at the new 62,000-capacity White Hart Lane venue on Sept. 15 against Liverpool.
However, safety issues meant they switched the game along with the next home fixture to Wembley.
Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy said the club was doing everything to deliver the new stadium in the shortest possible time.
“Amongst the consequences of the delay have been substantial additional costs, not least of which is the need for alternative venue hires,” Levy said in a statement.
“Mauricio, his staff and the players, have been exceptional in their support and fully embraced the changes of venue with total positivity. They have my utmost respect.
“As soon as we have confidence in our project managers’ and contractors’ ability to deliver against the revised schedule of works, we shall be able to issue dates for test,” Levy added.
