Tottenham Hotspur will begin construction on their new 56,000-seat stadium in the summer of 2014, with the new ground scheduled to open in time for the 2016-17 season, according to a report today in Goal.com.
The article reports that the stadium will be partially completed by the 2016-17 season, but it’ll be completely finished in time for the 2017-18 season.
Despite Tottenham asking for new plans from a different architecture firm, and the fact that the North London club will need to get naming rights confirmed and investment front-loaded before the stadium project can begin, the club seem confident of having everything in place to begin construction by June, 2014.
