Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will not feature its own VIP cheese room after all.

The Guardian newspaper has reported that Tottenham had never actually planned on introducing such a room at the new 62,000-seat stadium, an opening date for which is yet to be confirmed.

It was first reported that a cheese room would form part of the VIP area at the stadium back in January 2017. It was suggested that the room would allow guests in the exclusive ‘H Club’ to select specially-sourced cheeses at half-time during games.

The Guardian has now reported that it has been “unable to solve the mystery, despite an in-depth investigation that has taken it to the heart of London’s cheese society.”

Tottenham’s state-of-the-art new stadium had been due to open last September but it has been hit by a series of delays. In its latest statement on the matter last week, the club confirmed that its derby match against Arsenal on March 2 will be held at Wembley, where Tottenham has been playing home games while work on the new ground continues.

It means the earliest possible date that Tottenham can move into the stadium is March 17, when it is due to play Crystal Palace in the Premier League. However, should Palace progress to the FA Cup quarter-finals this match would have to be rearranged.

Tottenham’s next scheduled home match after that is against Brighton & Hove Albion on April 6.
