Tottenham Hotspur have agreed a deal with Wembley Stadium to play next season’s Champions League fixtures there, whilst the new stadium is being built.

The North London side, who finished 3rd in the Premier League last season, gained automatic entry to the European competition for finishing inside the top four.

Chairman Daniel Levy told the club’s official website: “We are delighted that, through working in partnership with WNSL and the Football Association, we have been able to reach this agreement. Given the current reduction in capacity at White Hart Lane for next season and the ticketing requirements for Champions League, playing at Wembley will mean that we can continue to accommodate all of our existing Season Ticket holders. Our season ticket waiting list is over 50,000 so this now also offers us a great opportunity to provide more of our supporters with a chance to see the team play live during our Champions League campaign.

"Importantly, as we know it was our fans' preference, it means that we can continue to play our home matches in London during our season away."

Wembley have also told the club, that there will be provisions put aside for the start of the 2017/18 should the club need to host Premier League or cup fixtures at the National ground for whatever logistic worries the club may have in future, when they make the big move from White Hart Lane.

This isn’t the first time Wembley Stadium has been used by a club for Europe’s premier competition. In the 1998/99 season, Arsenal felt Highbury’s capacity would take more for these fixtures and decided to host ties at Wembley. They eventually moved from Highbury to the bigger Emirates Stadium in 2006.

From next season, fellow neighbours, West Ham, will be playing in the Olympic Stadium. The final match at The Boleyn Ground, see them beat Manchester United 3-2 last month, before they head down the road to Stratford to entertain their fans with a much bigger capacity than the previous ground held.
