Meet this lot at The Lodge!

Posted on 7 February 2009  - 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).


Have you ever wanted to watch your favourite Spurs players training? Ever wondered what goes on behind-the-scenes at The Lodge?

Well all you have to do to win the prize of a lifetime is get in the spirit of World Orphan Week at the derby on Sunday and Wear Something WOW!

So what does this mean? Simple - dress up in the craziest outfit you can find and make sure you get noticed!

You could dress as your favourite superhero, pop star, or even Chirpy! The three best-dressed supporters will be picked out by WOW spotters in the crowd to receive their prize from Spurs legend Gary Mabbutt pitchside at half-time.

And what a prize! A Spurs home shirt signed by the first team squad and an exclusive invite to the Club's Spurs Lodge training ground to meet your heroes!

As you can see, the lads were supporting World Orphan Week in training on Friday, so why not follow their lead on Sunday!

Players training in WOW t-shirts

World Orphan Week runs from the 9th - 15th February and the Club and the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation will be working with SOS Children's Villages, our international charity partners, throughout the week to raise awareness of the campaign in the community.

Donations, no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated on the day and your support can give orphaned and abandoned children a family... for life!

Players in WOW t-shirts

In 2007, the Club announced a four-year international charity partnership with SOS Children's Villages, and over the past year we have been working with the charity on a number of initiatives in support of their work in South Africa.

The focus of our work so far has been in South Africa, whereby we have been working closely with SOS Children to fund the construction of our Tottenham Hotspur House, as well as providing educational equipment and providing links to the Spurs Learning Zone.

The Tottenham Hotspur House, which is uniquely and completely funded by monies received from players' fines, aims to provide orphaned children in South Africa with a family that they can call their own.
