Posted on 25 December 2000  - 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).

Our long-time sponsors Holsten UK have launched their biggest ever football promotion with the club offering home and away fans the chance to win &pound&#59;10,000 if they can &lsquo&#59;Hit the Bar&rsquo&#59;.<SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: 'Helvetica 55 Roman'&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN><P class=MsoNormal>At half-time during home matches the lucky winners will step out in front of a capacity crowd and aim to strike the ball against the crossbar from the edge of the penalty area.<P class=MsoNormal>The fun started during the interval against Middlesbrough and was a huge hit with fans.
