Jermain Defoe and Scott Parker both agree - they would have loved to have met the Tottenham Turfies when they were younger!
The Club launched the ground-breaking new entertainment platform on Wednesday morning.
Tottenham Turfies has been specially designed to engage young fans by capturing the imagination of 7-10 year old children - it's the world's first fully-interactive digital experience for children to be created and developed by a Football Club.
Jermain said: "It's always important to engage with the youngsters, they are the fans of the future and it's great the Club has launched Tottenham Turfies, you can't beat something like that!
"I remember when I was a kid I loved computer games. I used to play something called ISS, International Superstar Soccer. Kids all know FIFA now and now they have Tottenham Turfies.
"We also used to have football stickers to swap in the playground, but I would have loved to have been able to play against my friends online and create my own ‘Turfie’.
"Tottenham Turfies takes things to a new level and it’s a great way for kids to have fun and get into football from an early age."
Scott added: "The Turfies is certainly something I would have enjoyed when I was growing up.
"With the technology available these days, it something great for the kids, a platform for them to interact, play and win prizes.
"I'm sure a lot of youngsters will get logged on and create their own Turfie. It's brilliant!"
