Tottenham Hotspur Stadium facing crucial week to be ready for Burnley clash

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is facing a crucial week as the club aim to move into the new ground against Burnley on December 15, according to the Independent.

The work being carried out involves important work on the stadium’s fire safety systems.

This work must be completed in time for the two planned test events.

Haringey Council will only grant the club its safety certificates once two test events have successfully taken place.

The first event is pencilled in for late-November whilst the second is set to take place in early-December.

The test event in late-November is expected to have a capacity of up to 30,000 people and increase to 48,000 for the second event.

Tottenham have until next month to inform the Football Association whether Wembley Stadium will be needed for the fixture against Burnley.

Should the new ground fail to ready in time for a pre-Christmas opening, Manchester United on 13 January could be the first game.

In the meantime, Spurs are expected to announce fixtures against Chelsea and Southampton will both be moved to Wembley.
