Tottenham granted permission for Wembley games

23 March 2017 10:38

Tottenham moved one step closer to playing home games at Wembley next season after their application to host 27 matches at the stadium's full 90,000 capacity was approved.

Brent Council's planning committee voted in favour of the proposal by a majority of five to one following a heated meeting, lasting three hours and 32 minutes and during which frustrated local residents were allowed to air their views.

Spurs now have until March 31 to activate their option to play at the national stadium, which has already been agreed with the Football Association.

The club, however, are likely to use all their available time to decide, as they assess whether their new stadium next to White Hart Lane will be completed in time for the start of the 2018-19 season.

Tottenham could yet stay at their current ground next season and play home games at Wembley in 2018-19, before moving into the new stadium for the 2019-20 campaign.
