UEFA have confirmed the Champions League game between Tottenham Hotspur and PSV Eindhoven will go ahead as per schedule.
There had been serious concerns over the staging of this game as a number of NFL games were played on this surface. The latest NFL match between Jacksonville Jaguars and the Philadelphia Eagles took place at the ground just a day before Spurs’ encounter with Manchester City in the Premier League.
PSV were not sure whether the game would be called off due to the ground condition but now with UEFA given his green signal, the Dutch side are expected to practice at the stadium on Monday.
This game could prove to be a vital cog in Spurs’ season as a win in this match would ensure they remain in the race to making it to the next stage. UEFA made an inspection of the ground and later announced the ground to be fit for the encounter.
A UEFA statement read : “The pitch assessment conducted today was not a UEFA one, but a standard type of visit and quality measurement that the Wembley stadium management does before every match.
“We can confirm that the media activities planned for today, as well as the game itself, will take place as scheduled”.
