A perfect atmosphere

Posted on 18 October 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

The Club's Chairman, Daniel Levy, was full of praise for both the crowd and the players at the Tottenham Tribute Match yesterday.

He commented: "There was a wonderful atmosphere last night and it was great to see so many families in the ground enjoying the match. Although we lost, the result didn't really matter on such a special occasion.

"It was endearing to see Tottenham fans applauding DC United players coming off the pitch and showing our visitors so much warmth. The fans created a lively welcoming atmosphere for those watching the game live on TV in the USA and really did the Club proud."

He continued: "I had many complimentary comments from the board of DC United, who were in awe of the stadium and the crowd. Also, from speaking to the players I know that it is certainly a night that they will not forget.

"Seeing some of the legends of the past alongside current players made it a once in a lifetime match, with the proceedings going to a great cause. I would like to give my personal thanks to all the fans and players for making it such an entertaining evening."
