Tottenham will freeze season ticket prices for season in new stadium

Tottenham have announced they will be freezing season ticket prices for the first campaign in their new stadium.
Spurs will finally move into their stunning new 62,000 home on April 3 against Crystal Palace after lengthy delays that has seen them spend most of the current season at Wembley.
With the moving in date edging ever closer, club chiefs announced on Monday that they will not be increasing the price of season tickets for 2019-20 in another boost to fans.
A club statement read: 'The Club can announce that we shall be freezing the prices of all Season Tickets for the 2019/20 season.
'We should like to thank our Season Ticket Holders for bearing with us and supporting the team at Wembley Stadium during what has been a challenging time. 
'We acknowledge the inconvenience caused by this unique set of circumstances.'
Spurs are also set to get their own way with the stadium's transportation links after Transport For London (TFL) gave the go ahead to rename White Hart Lane station to Tottenham Hotspur.
London mayor Sadiq Khan previously warned Spurs that they should pay over £14.7million for the name change.
But, according to The Guardian
, a 'memo of understanding' is now being drawn up between the club and TFL with Spurs set to escape without paying for it to be changed.
There have been concerns that allowing Spurs to change the name would set a dangerous precedent for selling off stations for commercial benefit.
A spokesperson for the Mayor said: 'The mayor does not support setting a precedent of selling off station names.
'However, a unique brand partnership between TFL and Tottenham Hotspur would benefit both TFL and Tottenham, supporting significant investment to create a new sport, leisure and entertainment destination as part of the wider regeneration of the area. TFL is still in discussions about this opportunity.' 
After the Crystal Palace game, Spurs will host Manchester City in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final at home on April 9.
Tottenham have been putting the finishing touches to their £850million new stadium. 
Sportsmail
 reported that the club has fixed two dates in the diary for test events, which must be held before Haringey Council can issue a safety certificate for the new venue.
First, Spurs will play an Under 18 fixture against Southampton on Sunday March 24, kick-off 3pm, with a capacity of 30,000, followed by a legends match on Saturday March 30, kick-off 5.30, with a capacity of around 45,000. 
Spurs had originally hoped to be in their new stadium at the start of the current season, however there have been a number of setbacks meaning home games have been played at Wembley. 
Issues with safety at the stadium put back construction a number of months, with reported faults in the fire detection system.
