Good news folks! The Football Association (FA) has cleared the way for us and our neighbours, Tottenham Hotspurs, to temporary relocate to Wembley, while our stadiums are under construction.
Here’s what the FA’s chief executive, Martin Glenn had to say on the situation:
“I won’t comment on clubs but if that’s an opportunity then we will follow it,” Glenn said. “We are there to provide help. We can run the FA for less costs and we can raise more. There’s a range of things. It’s primarily a football stadium, football matches are more profitable to run than concerts and other things.
“We are the national stadium and seeking to use it more is what we are all about. We have an obligation to football. I’m not talking specific clubs but it’s in our interest as an association for clubs to redevelop their grounds, make superb facilities and if it’s possible to help them in that transition by using Wembley, we are absolutely supportive of that.

He might not use the “name” of the clubs, but it’s fairly obvious he means us and Spurs for that matter.
Tottenham Hotspurs expects to spend the 2017-18 season in Wembley as their stadium goes under development which means, we will HAVE TO SHARE our temporary home with Spurs for a season!
Yeah, I know, it’s awful! But that’s the price we will have to pay for the development of our new stadium.
Another thing – Wembley is capable of holding 90,000 people, but we will have a stadium limit of 50,000 for the three years we will spend there, so will Spurs.
