You would be excused for thinking that Jacques Santini’s first experience of White Hart Lane will be when Serie A side Cagliari visit on August 7 - that's not the case!
In actual fact, Jacques’ first taste of the Lane and the Spurs faithful will be on Sunday August 1 at our open day, and he can’t wait to sample a taste of the atmosphere in the stadium.
He said: “I’m very excited about the open day. It will be my first time at White Hart Lane in front of the fans and I’m really looking forward to seeing them. The stadium really is a wonderful venue for us to play our home games in.”
Our new home kit for the forthcoming 2004/2005 season goes on sale from Club shops, Spurs Direct and our Online Store from Wednesday July 28. It will be available exclusively on July 28, 29 and 30 before going on sale in high street stores. Supporters who have pre-ordered it have already secured themselves an exclusive ticket* to the open day and now those that haven’t pre-ordered also have the chance to watch the team train!
Supporters who buy the kit on either July 28, 29 or 30, will also get one of exclusive tickets* for our open day on Sunday August 1. Fans are advised that if they want to get one of the exclusive tickets*, they should buy the shirt in person from our Club Stores on White Hart Lane or in Harlow rather than Spurs Direct or our Online Store as we cannot guarantee delivery of the ticket before the actual day.
Sunday August 1 will be a rare opportunity to see what happens during a training session. The gates will open at 10am and from 10.30 we’ll keep you entertained on the Jumbotron. Training itself starts at 11am^ and during the session there will also be pitch side interviews with our new coaches and new players.
Later that afternoon, some of our new signings will also make a special appearance in our Megastore to meet some of the fans in person, sign autographs and pose for pictures.
