Tottenham's new stadium is edging closer to completion, with the roof now being installed on the club's impending 62,000-seater home.
Spurs are aiming for the ground to be completed for the start of next season, after finishing third, reaching the FA Cup semi-finals and Champions League knockout stages during their term at Wembley.
But the option remains open for them to play a number of their opening games of next season away from home, or at Wembley, with chairman Daniel Levy recently confirming its completion date was still uncertain.
"As you all head off for the summer period we shall be working hard on the final stages of the new stadium," he told supporters in his end-of-season message.
"With a project of this scale there are always challenges and unknowns, but contractors, with a workforce approaching 3,000, are working around the clock. We shall ask for your support in attending the two test events we shall run in advance of the formal opening.
"We shall give a further stadium update, including the dates for these events, as completion times become more certain."
With a capacity of 62,062, the new stadium will also include a 17,500 single-tier stand behind the goal, which the club hopes will generate a "wall of sound".
But it remains uncertain whether Mauricio Pochettino, who is a target for Chelsea, will see his team into the new home, after suggesting his future depends on the outcome of a strategy meeting between him and Levy this week.
