Chelsea and Tottenham edge closer to Wembley ground share

Posted by

The FA are said to be close to clearing the way for for both Chelsea and Tottenham to play their home games at Wembley Stadium during the 2017/18 season, according The Sun.

Both clubs are looking to redevelop Stamford Bridge and White Hart Lane respectively and will need to relocate temporarily while the work is carried out.

And The Sun report claims that the Blues have reached a £20m-per-year agreement with the FA to use the national stadium as a home base for three years between 2017 and 2020.

But despite their hopes of gaining sole use of the stadium, it looks as though the FA are set to broker a similar deal with north London rivals Spurs.

And on top of that, the stadium will still host a number of NFL fixtures as well English league cup finals, though it is believed that national team games will be staged all around the country.

The deal will see concerts and rugby games restricted to a limited number.
