Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed that they have agreed a deal to play their home Champions League fixtures at Wembley next season.
Spurs agree deal to play Champions League home games at Wembley
Spurs are in the process of building a new stadium which is expected to be complete for the beginning of the 2018/19 season. The decision was taken to move the home games to Wembley in order to meet UEFA regulations and Daniel Levy expressed his delight that an agreement had been reached.
Levy said that he was "delighted" that together with "WNSL and the FA" everyone was "able to reach this agreement." The chairman went on to say that by playing at Wembley, the club can "continue to accommodate all of [their] existing ticket holders" which keeps everyone happy.
Levy confirmed that the club's season ticket waiting list is over "50,000" and he feels this is an opportunity "to provide the supporters with the chance to see the team live", when the team begin their "Champions League campaign" next season.
The chairman says that it is "important" as they know it was their "fans' preference" to stay in "London" during the "season away" from White Hart Lane.
Spurs will hope to give a good account of themselves in the Champions League next season after working hard to meet their aim of qualifying this season. The last time the team appeared in the competition they made it through to the quarter finals where they eventually lost to Real Madrid.
