The first test event at Spurs’ new home takes place on Sunday with the club’s U18 side taking on Southampton.
It’s almost two years since Tottenham left White Hart Lane but the good news is that the Lilywhites are finally heading back to N17.
The home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday, April 3 is set to be the very first Premier League game at the 62,062-seater stadium, although that will only get the green light providing the club obtain the relevant safety certificates from the two test events taking place over the next week.
Around 30,000 fans are due to be in attendance for the game against the Saints, with 45,000 set to watch the Tottenham Legends game against Inter Milan on Saturday, March 30.
Here’s all the information you need to know ahead of the first test event taking place:
The first game at the new stadium will be played between Spurs’ U18 side and Southampton.
The fixture was initially set to take place at Hotspur Way earlier in the month but it was rearranged to be played at the new stadium with Tottenham needing to hold a test event.
Ryan Mason, who has been shadowing the club’s academy coaching staff since his retirement, will be in the dugout for the game alongside Head of Player Development John McDermott.
Which players could feature?
Goalkeepers: Joshua Oluwayemi, Kacper Kurylowicz
Defenders: Brooklyn Lyons-Foster, Jubril Okedina, Maxwell Statham, Malachi Walcott
Midfielders: Jamie Bowden, Dilan Markanday, Phoenix Patterson, Armando Shashoua, Rayan Clarke, Elliot Thorpe, Maurizio Pochettino, Harvey White, Chay Cooper, Rafferty Pedder
Forwards: Rodel Richards, Jeremie Mukendi, J’Neil Bennett, Enock Asante
Jonathan De Bie, Luis Binks and Paris Maghoma, Troy Parrott are all away on international duty so that means they won’t be playing any part on Sunday afternoon.
Oliver Skipp remains eligible for the U18s but it does seem unlikely that he will feature, while Maxi Tainio is out with a long-term injury.
What time is kick-off?
The game will get underway at 3pm.
What time do the doors open?
The stadium will be open two hours ahead of kick-off, with Premium areas open three hours before the game.
Fans are expected to arrive early at the game anyway to get a good view of the new stadium, but the club has urged those attending to arrive in good time to avoid the busy public transport and clear the security checks.
Will all the stadium be open?
The good news is that fans will be able to get a proper look at the stadium as all public areas will be open.
There are plenty of places for Spurs fans to eat and drink prior to the game and prices can be found right here.
The Beavertown Tottenham Microbrewery and Taproom will prove extremely popular and that can be found in the South East Corner on Level One.
it is worth noting that the stadium is cashless.
What has Ryan Mason said about the game?
“It’s a great privilege for our group of players and staff to have the honour of participating in the first game in the new stadium,” he told the club’s official website.
“The Academy has worked well for the Club over the years and I think it’s fitting that the first match in our new home is going to showcase our current youth talent.
“It’s going to be an historic moment for everyone involved – including the players, coaches and fans – and I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity to be part of it.
“I was lucky enough to have some incredible experiences as a player in the old stadium and to be part of this occasion now as we test out the new stadium fills me with excitement and pride.”
Will Mauricio Pochettino be in attendance?
The main man will be there for the game.
Spurs revealed earlier in the week that he will be the special guest at half-time and he will be interviewed prior to the start of the second half.
He will also no doubt be keeping close tabs on his son, Maurizio, providing he gets the nod.
