Fans flock to see their heroes at Wembley
08 September 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
It was a fantastic turnout at the London Designer Outlet in Wembley Park on Wednesday as the Club held a two-hour autograph signing session with favourites past and present.
Harry Kane and Eric Dier were joined by legendary former skipper Gary Mabbutt for the event held a week ahead of our first Champions League group game at the national stadium against AS Monaco.
The first in queue for autographs had been in place since 10am ahead of a 3.30pm start - showing the incredible passion of our fans in the local area.
Alongside the signing session, and as part of our commitment to the local community in Brent while we are playing our home matches in Wembley, the Club delivered free health checks to members of the public in the shopping centre, courtesy of the Spurs Nurse.
It was part of our support of the local Council’s healthy living campaign, ‘My Heart Beats for Brent’, which aims to encourage local residents to take part in at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day using the Borough’s facilities and open spaces.

The Tottenham Hotspur Foundation has successfully delivered over 4,000 community health checks - primarily aimed at men over the age of 35 reluctant to visit their GP - in Haringey and will now be rolling the programme out in Brent.
Harry Kane said: “It was great to see so many fans turn out and shows how much the excitement is building around Wembley ahead of this season’s Champions League campaign.
“Hopefully many of the fans that came along today will be cheering us on in the stadium next week for what is a huge occasion for the Club.”
