Official Supporters’ Club Day
If you are a member of one of our UK-based Official Supporters’ Clubs, Friday 6 August* is a date you need in your diary.
For years, we have loved delivering special activations for the Official Supporters’ Clubs based in the cities we have visited on tour overseas - now it’s time for our UK clubs to take advantage.
We shall be holding a 5-a-side tournament during the day to find out which club can match their fantastic support with performances on the pitch!
Then, in the evening, Supporters’ Club members will be invited to the stadium for an evening in the company of legendary former captains, Ledley King and Gary Mabbutt.
The pair will be taking part in a live Q&A followed by an autograph signing session - start getting your questions ready!
UK Supporters’ Club chairpersons will be contacted via email with details on how they can sign their clubs up for the events.
Train like a pro
We shall be offering our One Hotspur Junior Members an exclusive chance to join an hour-long virtual training session being delivered by our Player Development Programme coaches.
Our team of highly-qualified coaches will deliver the session based on the methods used within the Club’s Academy.
You will get a unique insight into what life is like for a young player at Spurs, while developing your football skills and technique in a fun and engaging way.
The parents of our Junior Members will shortly be receiving an email with details on when the session will be taking place and how they can sign their child up.
