Tottenham will play at Wembley if they reach the FA Cup semi-finals, Sky Sports News understands.
Spurs have played all their 'home' games at Wembley this season while their own stadium is being built but it has prompted the question of whether it would be a truly 'neutral venue' if they reach the last four of the FA Cup.
Spurs still have some way to go before the issue becomes a reality. They are facing a fifth-round replay against Rochdale - at Wembley - on February 28 after a 2-2 draw at Spotland on Sunday.
If they come through that match they would then face an away tie at either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea in the quarter-finals.
It is understood the FA will sanction a semi-final involving Tottenham at Wembley but Spurs will have no 'home team' privileges such as the choice of dressing rooms or the allocation of stadium ends for their supporters.
These will be determined by the FA in consultation with the relevant authorities.
Tottenham struggled with their home form in the early part of the season but they have become more accustomed to their temporary home in recent weeks and have beaten Manchester United and Arsenal in their last two league matches there.
Spurs play next at Crystal Palace in the league on Sunday, live on Sky Sports, before League One Rochdale visit Wembley three days later.
