Tottenham Hotspur could play their Champions League games at Wembley next season with Chelsea also lined up to play there in the near future.
Sky Sports News states that an agreement with the North London side is close whilst FA Chairman Greg Dyke also states that the club could play their home league games at the national stadium from 2017-18 whilst they await their new White Hart Lane stadium to reach completion.
Spurs are due to move into their new 61000 capacity home from the start of the 2018-19 season and will leave their current ground at the end of next season and Dyke stated that Wembley could become their new home declaring: “We are certainly in discussion with Spurs that they should come in for the full season when they’re rebuilding their stadium. I think we’re a long way down the path on reaching an agreement. I think there’s some discussion about whether they’ll play their Champions League games there at Wembley next year but I don’t know much about that.”On the full season, I think we’re quite close to a deal.”
Dyke then stated that Chelsea are also in line for a spell at Wembley whilst Stamford Bridge is rebuilt, claiming that; “I think Chelsea might come for a longer period. Chelsea have got really exciting plans for their stadium. They’re going to demolish the whole thing and build a whole new stadium on the existing site.
