Toronto Spurs' inner-city community programme
Mon 18 November 2019, 17:23|Tottenham Hotspur
Toronto Spurs are the latest of our Official Supporters’ Clubs to show their support for a good cause within their community by working with the Regent Park Soccer League (RPSL).
Regent Park is Canada's largest housing project, home to around 15,000 people, 45% of whom live at or below the poverty line according to the most recent census in 2011, and where crime, drug abuse and gang activity is prevalent.
The RPSL enables children from six to 15 years old to play organised football for free by providing leagues, clubs, kits and coaching, while also financially assisting the more talented players to play in the higher-level city leagues.
So far, Toronto Spurs have raised nearly $1,000 for RPSL through a range of Spurs-related activities amongst their members, with plans for further events throughout the season.
Matt Franck, Chairman of Toronto Spurs, said: “The aim for Toronto Spurs is simple - we are aiming to raise as much money as possible so that kids, who otherwise would be at high risk of involvement in crime, have the chance to play football. Moreover, those who love and excel at the game have a chance to grow within it.”
We want to hear more great stories about how your club is going the extra mile in their support of Spurs to make a difference in your community.

Supporters’ Clubs latest
We are delighted to welcome two new Official Supporters’ Clubs from Europe to our Spurs family - Romania Spurs and Tallinn Spurs, from Estonia.
Wherever you are in the world, creating an Official Supporters’ Club is a fantastic way to bring together like-minded fans in your area to watch games at a local meeting place.
Applications to form a brand new Official Supporters’ Club for the 2019/20 season can still be made.
