The ‘Player Development Programme’ is designed for players aged 8-16 years and focuses on every aspect of the game using the same coaching methods delivered within the Club’s renowned Academy.

The programme also aims to develop the players’ off-pitch values such as discipline and respect as well as their on-pitch techniques.

The ‘Coach Education Programme’ aims to teach local grassroots coaches how to create an environment that attracts, retains and develops players within the framework and philosophy of Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur enjoys a strong fanbase in Sweden with the official Supporters Club having 2,000 active members, many of who regularly travel to North London to watch Spurs play. The Club has delivered First Team tours in Sweden during the 1980’s, 1990’s and 2000’s and in 2013, Club Ambassador Ledley King visited the Supporters Club in Stockholm and was a guest pundit on Viasat Fotboll Premier League TV show.

Andy Rogers, Tottenham Hotspur Global Coaching Manager, said: “Our FA and UEFA-qualified coaches travel extensively around the globe to create learning environments for young players and coaches to develop and reach their potential. Delivering our programme in Sweden is a brilliant opportunity for the Club to showcase our unique style to a new audience and develop players and coaches.”
