Give your kid the opportunity of a lifetime! #MascotForADay
28 June 2014|Tottenham Hotspur
Are you a Spurs fan in the United States or Canada? Would you like your son or daughter to be a mascot at one of our pre-season tour fixtures? Tweet us and tell us why your child deserves to be mascot using #MascotForADay and we’ll pick two winners per city!
Follow @SpursOfficial on Twitter and put your child’s case forward before the 5pm deadline on Friday, July 11. You could win the opportunity of a lifetime for your son or daughter at the Seattle Sounders game on July 19, the match against Toronto FC on July 23 or our final tour outing at Chicago Fire on July 26.
Be creative, use photos or Vines if you wish. Has your child had every Spurs kit since a young age? Do they check the score every week? Was their first word a Spurs player? We want to hear from you.
It should be stressed that entrants must follow @SpursOfficial on Twitter as this will be the method by which you will be contacted should you win.
