Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur may be able to relocate to Wembley Stadium on a temporary basis following a recently discovered loophole, allowing games to be played permitting the crowd is no larger than 50,000.
The Standard initially reported the agreement between Wembley and Brent Council which could prove valuable to either team.
Wembley has a capacity of 90,000 but with the restriction to just the bottom two tiers, it would drop down to 50,000 - a figure allowed by Brent Council to allow them not to be classed as 'major sporting events'.
With both of the London clubs planning to expand their home stadiums, Wembley would be perfect for the sides during their transitional periods as well as boost the FA's revenue.

Stamford Bridge's current capacity is just over 40,000 with White Hart Lane holding 36,000 supporters. Neither are realistically big enough considering the location of the clubs and the mass support both receive.
The stadium already hosts numerous sporting events including the FA Cup final, Capital One Cup final as well as a few NFL games throughout the course of the season and with both sides progressing in the Europa League and the Champions League, there would be too many games for the idea to be feasible.
The stadium is only allowed to be used for 37 major sporting events throughout the year - surprisingly, the England ladies game against Germany last year which had around 45,000 spectators was not on the list of 'major' events.
Both sides are realistic on the idea but do remain optimistic, with Chelsea currently holding talks with Twickenham and Spurs debating the idea of a move to Stadium MK, home of the Dons.
