Mon 23 May 2022, 23:00|Tottenham Hotspur
Our Men’s First Team will take on Sevilla FC at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on Saturday 16 July, 8pm kick-off (local time), in the second match of our summer tour of South Korea.
The match will form part of the Coupang Play Series, organised and promoted by Coupang and Pitch International, which begins with our match against Team K-League in Seoul on Wednesday 13 July.
Sevilla are renowned for a record six UEFA Europa League titles and will compete in next season’s Champions League following a top four finish in La Liga. Our current squad members Sergio Reguilon and Bryan Gil have also previously played for them.
All our Men’s pre-season matches, including the Sevilla clash, will be broadcast live on SPURSPLAY* - the new destination for Club video content, launching in July. Fans are able to register their interest in subscribing ahead of all the action getting underway.
Ticketing information for both Coupang Play Series matches will be announced in due course.
Tottenham Hotspur is currently the most watched and best-supported overseas soccer team in South Korea and home to two of the country’s most loved players - Heung-Min Son, who is the Men’s national team captain, and So-hyun Cho, who is the most capped Korean footballer of all time with 139 caps.
The Club currently has four Official Supporters’ Clubs in South Korea - Boryeong Spurs, Daegu Spurs, Gangwon-Do Spurs and South Korea Spurs - and last year launched @Spurs_KR, a new Korean Twitter account, to sit alongside a dedicated Korean language website.
This visit to South Korea, supported by AIA, will be our third, having successfully competed in the Peace Cup in 2005 and taken part in a promotional trip in 2017.
As is tour tradition, our players and Ambassadors will be out and about in the cities that we visit, meeting fans, supporting good causes and immersing themselves in local culture**.
Alongside this, our Global Football Development coaches will deliver our renowned technical programme for local young players and coach education workshops, showcasing the authentic training methods developed within the Club’s Academy, helping young players to reach their full potential.
Fans can follow the tour with exclusive content available across our official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Instagram and TikTok platforms, our Korean website and our live Match Centre on tottenhamhotspur.com, with matches broadcast live on SPURSPLAY.
*Match broadcast live on SPURSPLAY globally except in Asia - fans in Korea can watch live on Coupang Play, with further Asia broadcast info to be announced
