Tottenham Hotspur will hold a 'fan familiarisation' event at its new stadium next month as the protracted project edged another step towards completion.

The north London club was due to enter its new ground, adjacent to its former White Hart Lane home, for the start of the 2018-19 season but is continuing to play at Wembley Stadium while the finishing touches are applied.

Spurs announced a positive step on Friday, however, with 6,000 fans invited to a test event on December 16 at which various logistical issues - including ticketing, transport and catering - will be tried out.

The supporters will be invited to have a look round the 62,000 all-seater venue, entering via the single-tier South Stand.
