Following the news yesterday that Tottenham Hotspur will not be able to move into their proposed new stadium until the 2017/18 season, it has been suggested that at option for them would be to ground share the Olympic Stadium with West Ham for one season.
Spurs were expected to move into their new stadium for the 2016/17 season, however due to ongoing issues with a local business refusing to accept a compulsory purchase order of their site, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has had to to concede that the move will not happen when desired.
This now leaves Spurs in a mess, having to find a temporary home for a season, or maybe longer. News that the Olympic Stadium is an option on the table for Spurs will no doubt alarm many West Ham fans – however it is expected that the North Londoners will use Wembley Stadium as their temporary home.
Renting Wembley however comes at a very high cost, and it’s one that Mr Levy will no doubt squirm at the thought of paying. Their second option is Milton Keynes, with the MK Dons home being made available.
West Hams new home, the Olympic Stadium, is on their list of potential options, however it is highly unlikely this will materialise.
