Tottenham will have to wait until at least April to move into their new stadium after Crystal Palace progressed in the FA Cup. Spurs were hoping to move in the early stages of 2018-19 but a ball is yet to be kicked on the new pitch due to safety issues.
They were granted permission to remain at Wembley but hinted they could host the north London derby with Arsenal on March 3 at the new venue.
That fixture was ruled out a few weeks ago and the next target for the opening game in the 62,062-seater ground was against Palace on March 17.
However, Spurs have announced that fixture will need to be rearranged after Palace booked their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Tottenham tweeted: “Following Crystal Palace’s FA Cup fifth-round win today, our Premier League clash at home against Palace scheduled for Sunday 17 March will have to be rearranged. Full details will follow in due course.”
It means they may have to wait until the home clash with Brighton on April 6 to christen the new stadium.
