The Football Association has confirmed that Tottenham Hotspur will play all their home matches at Wembley Stadium next season. This is despite opposition from local residents to Brent Council's approval of Wembley National Stadium's application to increase the number of full capacity events at the Stadium.
Tottenham’s chairman, Daniel Levy, said in a statement:
This marks a momentous day in our club’s history as it is the day we formally agreed the demolition of our beloved White Hart Lane. The Lane means a huge amount to each and every one of us and we needed to gain greater certainty on the delivery of the new stadium before we made the final decision to commence with the decommissioning of our iconic, historic home for some 118 years. We shall ensure that we give the Lane a fitting farewell when we play our last match here on May 14.
Wembley will be our home for a season and then we shall return to what will be one of the best stadiums of its kind and the most unique in the world playing host to NFL games too – a stadium that will be key to our future growth and success. Both on and off the pitch this is an incredibly exciting time in the history of our club.
