Tottenham screening of Champions League final vs Liverpool complicated by absence of safety certificate

Tottenham 2018-19: A quick recap

2018-19 has been a rollercoaster season for Tottenham. And it’s still not over.

Spurs have booked their spot in the Champions League final against Liverpool.

That’s a remarkable achievement considering Tottenham were bottom of their Champions League group with just one point after their opening three matches.

In the Premier League, Spurs ended the season in fourth spot after a poor run of results towards the end of the year.

The Lilywhites achieved that result without signing a single player in the last two transfer windows.

Of course, Tottenham also had plenty of selection problems this term. Harry Kane, Son Heung-min and Dele Alli, amongst others, all missed large chunks of the campaign.

And against all that, Tottenham finally moved into their brand new stadium, having spent the majority of the year playing at Wembley Stadium.

Tottenham’s new stadium – the saga continues

Tottenham’s move into their new ground was long and protracted.

The move finally happened in April when Spurs beat Crystal Palace 1-0.

But, as confirmed by the Sun this Monday, Tottenham’s new stadium still isn’t finished.

Tottenham are still lacking their full safety certificate ahead of the 2019-20 campaign. The tabloid announced:

Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has torn into contractors working on their new ground in a bid to finally complete work so the club can be granted a full safety certificate.

The £1billion stadium was only allowed to open last season when Haringey Council made some concessions and gave them temporary clearance to play matches there until the end of the season.

Screening Champions League final vs Liverpool

Tottenham are hoping to screen the Champions League final in their brand new stadium on June 1st.

Indeed, Spurs could pack out their new 62,000-seater home for the event.

But, at the time of writing, Tottenham face a problem in going ahead with the event due to their aforementioned lack of a full safety certificate. The Sun report:

It means the club are now having to apply on an event to event basis to host big gatherings, including showing their Champions League final clash with Liverpool there when they hope for a 62,000 sell-out.
