Report: Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy hopeful of Wembley ground share with Chelsea

Tottenham WHL

Spurs are yet to finalise arrangements for their season away from White Hart Lane.

The issue of where Tottenham Hotspur will play their football during the redevelopment of White Hart Lane took a twist yesterday when reports emerged, via The Mirror, that Chelsea had outbid Spurs for the right to play at Wembley Stadium temporarily.

Spurs will play away from the Lane for the 2017-18 season and several stadiums have been sounded out as potential options including Stadium mk, Twickenham and the Olympic Stadium.

Wembley Stadium represents the preferred choice for Spurs fans, however, given its location and capacity, and chairman Daniel Levy is hopeful of reaching a resolution despite Chelsea’s interest.

Sky Sports report that Levy expects the FA to "do the right thing" and "find a way to accommodate both clubs".

Chelsea will need a new temporary home for three years beginning with the 2017-18 campaign, as they upgrade Stamford Bridge, and have identified the national stadium as their prime target.

The Blue’s Wembley interest means a ground share scenario could be the only option to accommodate both clubs and it remains to be seen whether all parties can reach an agreement.
