Tottenham Hotspur announced on Friday that they will play all of their home matches at Wembley Stadium during the 2017/18 campaign.

The move was always on the cards because of the development of their new stadium on the existing White Hart Lane site, but there was some talk that they could still carry on playing at the Lane next term before moving to Wembley the following campaign if the work wouldn’t be completed in time for the 2018/19 season.
However, Daniel Levy has now confirmed the move for next term and Spurs will certainly be hoping that they enjoy a better record at the home of England than they have recently – they have lost seven and won just one of their last nine matches at the iconic stadium.
Tottenham supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, with many concerned at how the team will fare at Wembley considering the recent record they have there.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction from the fans…
