Spurs announced they will play Crystal Palace at the redeveloped White Hart Lane next month, but it will not be televised
Tottenham fans not able to get their hands on a ticket for the first game at their new stadium will also not be able to watch it on TV.
Spurs will host Crystal Palace on Wednesday, April 3 at the redeveloped White Hart Lane on the same night Manchester City play Cardiff City, with Sky Sports showing that game instead.
Neil Warnock’s side were originally due to play City on April 6, but the game has been rearranged because of the FA Cup semi-final clash between Pep Guardiola’s title chasers and Brighton.
It’s fair to say there were a few Tottenham fans unhappy with the decision and they have expressed their disappointment on Twitter.
Spurs must get through two test events at the new stadium before they play Palace.

The club are also threatening to suspend fans who attempt to resell tickets at an extortionate price with reports of some supporters quoting £1,200 for the opener.
And while season ticket prices have been frozen for next season, the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust issued a statement expressing their worry match day tickets will price supporters out following the decision to increase the cost.
Spurs are currently third in the Premier League, one point ahead of rivals Arsenal and face Liverpool next, having not won in four Premier League games.
However, during that run the club reached the Champions League quarter-final, beating Borussia Dortmund both home and away to produce an all-England tie against Manchester City.
