Team to wear special edition match shirt for Lane Finale
09 May 2017|Tottenham Hotspur
We are pleased to announce that the First Team squad will wear special edition match day shirts that will pay tribute to White Hart Lane and the Tottenham Tribute Trust in the final home game to be played at our famous stadium against Manchester United.
The shirts will incorporate our special edition White Hart Lane crest, which pays homage to our home of 118 years. The unique emblem will feature above our players’ names on the back of their match shirts for this fixture and is inspired by some of the most iconic aspects around the stadium.
The Club announced last week that the Tottenham Tribute Trust would be the charity supported throughout The Finale of the Lane and we can now reveal that their TTT logo will feature on the front of the commemorative match shirts alongside our Official Shirt Sponsor AIA, who has kindly agreed to this inclusion in support of the important work of the Trust.
The Trust is the first of its kind, established by the Club in 2002 and run by a board of independent and voluntary trustees, dedicated to serving the needs of former players who find themselves in a situation that compromises their quality of life.
Following the conclusion of the fixture all match worn shirts will be signed by the squad before being auctioned along with other stadium memorabilia to raise funds for the TTT. AIA will also be supporting additional fundraising activities.
In addition, the First Team will wear special edition warm-up t-shirts prior to this momentous fixture, which will also bear the names of AIA and the TTT.
Daniel Levy, Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are delighted and grateful to AIA for extending this opportunity to the Tottenham Tribute Trust, which will serve to increase awareness of the support provided to the wider Spurs family. Our former players are the lifeblood of this Club and there is no more appropriate cause than the Trust at such a historic time for the Club.”
Mark Saunders, Group Chief Strategy Officer of AIA, commented: “We are proud to have Spurs as our partner and delighted to be able to support them for such a worthy cause. They do such great work in the community and, more widely, their social altruism is truly honourable and wonderful to be associated with. The Spurs philosophy is aligned with AIA’s in making a positive difference by helping people live longer, healthier, better lives. The Tottenham Tribute Trust is yet another powerful example of the good they do.”
Jonathan Adelman, Chair of the Tottenham Tribute Trust, said: “We should like to thank the Club for giving the Tottenham Tribute Trust this opportunity and AIA for agreeing to our inclusion alongside them on the front of the player shirts for such a momentous game. We hope that these unique shirts will raise significant funds for the Trust, giving us the opportunity to support the former players for years to come.”
