Tottenham in talks to use international stadium for European matches

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur - Capital One Cup FinalTottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern are discussing the possibility of seeing some games played at a new ‘home’ next season, as preparations continue towards their new stadium.

The Times says that Spurs are in talks with the Football Association about using Wembley as the venue for their European games next term, with White Hart Lane at a reduced capacity as work begins on major redevelopment.

Spurs are hopeful they will unveil their new ground in 2018 but with work set to begin this summer, the club have been forced to remove up to 8,000 seats at White Hart Lane to facilitate room for further development.

The new stadium adjoins the existing home of the north London giants and next season will see work begin, though the major work will be completing during the 2017/18 season that may lead Spurs to ground share Wembley with London rivals Chelsea.

Our landlord, and many of the fans, are concerned that a reduced capacity Wembley could have a drastic effect on the atmosphere for Tottenham’s home ties in Europe, potentially reducing the home-field advantage.

Spurs fans, can you get Wembley rocking like you do with White Hart Lane? Let us know in the comments below!
