Tottenham's new stadium still taking shape just three weeks before Premier League season starts
TOTTENHAM’s new stadium is continuing to take shape with the Premier League season drawing close.
The roof is on the new 62,000-seat arena but there is still plenty of work to be done before their first game against Liverpool on September 15.
Spurs will play their first match at the 62,000-seater five games into the Premier League season when they welcome Liverpool to North London.
They kick off their campaign away at Newcastle, before hosting Fulham at Wembley a week later.
Fans ridiculed their new stadium on Twitter yesterday – believing the venue resembles a giant toilet.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men then have back-to-back away fixtures against Manchester United and Watford, before the Reds look to ruin Tottenham’s historic day.
But with just under two months until Jurgen Klopp’s men arrive, the new ground is in a race to be completed.
However, Tottenham remain confident their match against Liverpool will take place at their new home.
Speaking of the new ground, Pochettino said last month: “We are excited about the season ahead and making the new stadium our new home.
“I have stood inside the bowl and I know the atmosphere will be unbelievable – it will be well worth the wait.”
Spurs’ first pre-season match will be against Roma on Thursday with the FA Cup semi-finalists taking part in the International Champions Cup.
