Tottenham plan to play their long-awaited first competitive match at their new stadium against either Brighton or Crystal Palace in the first week of April.

The club have announced two further test events will take place at the end of this month, which should lead to the stadium being granted a safety certificate.

The new stadium will then host a Premier League match between Spurs and Palace on April 3 or against Brighton on the weekend of April 6/7, subject to Brighton's progress in the FA Cup.

Brighton have been drawn away to Millwall in the sixth round of the FA Cup, with the match on March 17.

A Tottenham statement said: "We have held discussions with the Premier League and UEFA. The following has been agreed with the Premier League, Brighton and Crystal Palace to ensure that our first game is a Premier League match prior to a UEFA Champions League quarter-final match.

"If Brighton win their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Crystal Palace on Wednesday 3rd April and Brighton on 23rd/24th April.

"If Brighton lose their FA Cup quarter-final match on Sunday 17th March we shall play Brighton on 6th/7th April (subject to Champions League scheduling) and Crystal Palace on 23rd/24th April."

The test events at the new stadium will see Spurs' Under-18s play Southampton on March 24 before a Legends match on March 30.

Spurs had been scheduled to move to the new 62,000-capacity stadium, built on the site of the old White Hart Lane, at the start of the season but construction has been heavily delayed.

Instead, the club have been forced to play home games at Wembley for a second-consecutive season.
