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).

We take a look at a key event from the club's history on this day...

January 8th - 1901: We faced European opposition for the first time when the touring Berlin FC were defeated 9-6 at a snow covered White Hart Lane. It was the first visit to Britain by a German team.

With thanks to club historian Andy Porter
