First Team to visit Shanghai and Singapore for pre-season
Tue 19 February 2019, 01:00|Tottenham Hotspur
We are delighted to announce that the First Team squad will travel to Singapore and Shanghai as part of our pre-season tour in July in preparation for the 2019/20 season.
Our 2019 pre-season tour will see us return to Singapore for the first time since 1995 when we played against the Singapore Lions. We previously visited mainland China in 2009 when we contested the Barclays Asia Trophy in Beijing, while we also visited Hong Kong as recently as 2017 to compete in a post-season fixture against Kitchee SC.
It will be our First-Team’s maiden visit to Shanghai.
The tour will also enable us to join in the Centennial celebrations of our Global Principal Partner, AIA, whose roots trace back to Shanghai in 1919. The Club and AIA have enjoyed a successful strategic partnership since the start of the 2013/14 season. Our tour to both Singapore and Shanghai will form an important part of the Pan-Asian life insurer's Centennial, with a 12-month programme of special events and activities across its 18 markets in the region having commenced in January.
The visit also affords the Club the opportunity to engage with our millions of fans across Asia including Official Supporters Clubs in both countries in which we will be playing fixtures.
Further details regarding opposition, venues and ticketing for our matches in both Singapore and Shanghai will follow.
