Just over 33,000 fans turned out for Spurs’ last home game at Wembley, a 3-1 win over Southampton

Updated 14 January

Tottenham has confirmed that its upcoming matches against Watford, Newcastle United, Leicester City and Borussia Dortmund will all be played at Wembley Stadium.

In an update to fans, the club has cited building control sign-offs and the requirement to schedule in building test dates as the reason for the continued delay.

The next competitive fixture yet to be officially moved from Tottenham’s delayed stadium to Wembley is its Premier League match against bitter north-London rivals Arsenal.

But with the club again declining to put an opening date on the new ground, below is a list of potential opponents for the first competitive fixture at the new ground.
