Tottenham have reached an agreement with UEFA to play their opening Champions League home match at Wembley Stadium.
Tottenham are currently without a permanent home ground due to construction delays at the 62,000-capacity ‘Tottenham Hotspur Stadium’.
The Lillywhites have already moved their Premier League games against Liverpool and Cardiff City, on September 15 and October 6 respectively, from their new stadium to temporary home Wembley.
An agreement is also now in place to stage their first Champions League home match at the national stadium, while talks are ongoing about potentially swapping the venue for their other remaining home group games.
The club said: “We have agreed with UEFA that the first home matchday of this season’s Champions League group stage, scheduled on either matchday one (week commencing 17 September) or matchday two (week commencing 1 October), will be staged at Wembley Stadium.”
They may also be forced to apply for special dispensation to stage next month’s EFL Cup third-round tie at a neutral venue or reverse the fixture to play it away, as Wembley is already being used that week.
In the event that Tottenham Hotspur are drawn at home in Round Three of the Carabao Cup, the Club can apply for special dispensation from the EFL Board to play their fixture away from home as a result of the delays in moving to their new stadium,” the EFL said in a statement.
“If the circumstances dictate a reversal is required, then the EFL Board can also determine a level of compensation to be paid by Tottenham Hotspur to the opposing club.
“The compensation precedent was set in August 2016 when, prior to the draw, Liverpool FC were given permission to play their EFL Cup Round Two tie under the same terms due to redevelopment work taking place on the Club’s Main Stand. On that occasion the draw determined it was not necessary.
An EFL spokesman said: “If required, the rules of the Carabao Cup provide for the Board of the EFL to consider requests to reverse fixtures or for matches to be played at a neutral venue. Any decision to grant dispensation takes into account all relevant circumstances facing a Club at the time the fixture is scheduled to take place.”
