Spurs in Melbourne | Scott on our 'special' return to Oz in May

Tue 19 March 2024, 15:00|Tottenham Hotspur

Scott Munn says it's 'exciting' and a 'great opportunity' after it was announced that we are returning to Australia to play Newcastle United as part of Global Football Week in Melbourne in May.

Our Chief Football Officer is back Down Under alongside Assistant Coach and former Socceroos skipper Mile Jedinak for the announcement of the post-match friendly fixture against the Toon at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Wednesday 22 May (7.45pm local time, 9.45am UK).

Scott knows all about sport in Australia having started his career with the Sydney Organising Committee for the 2000 Olympic Games and working in the NRL, AFL (Aussie Rules) and then joining Melbourne City FC (A-League) as CEO in 2010.

I know when I spoke with Ange how positive he was about coming back here and playing on the hallowed turf

Scott Munn on Ange's thoughts on playing at the iconic MCG

Speaking at the launch in Melbourne on Monday, Scott said: "It's special for me, yes. I've been lucky enough to be here for a number of years, both living and involved in football, and it's a great opportunity to come back with Spurs.

"For any player around the world of any sporting code, to say we're playing at the MCG is exciting and I know when I spoke with Ange how positive he was about coming back here and playing on the hallowed turf.

“When we visited Perth last summer we were blown away by the warmth shown to us by our Australian fans, and I know it will be the same in Melbourne.

"We have two official supporter groups here in Melbourne, part of our 11 official supporter groups (OzSpurs) here in Australia, so it will be fantastic for them and we will continue to visit, continue to work with our official supporter groups, continue to work here with Global Football Development and continue to grow the game."

The fixture marks a return to his home city for Ange Postecoglou, who memorably took charge of the team for the first time on home soil when we faced West Ham United in Perth last summer.

It represents our first return to the world-famous MCG since July, 2016, when we faced Juventus and Atletico Madrid in pre-season action.

Our Global Football Development team will be holding training sessions for aspiring young footballers in Melbourne in the days surrounding our fixture.

Global Football Week Melbourne will also see both men’s and women’s A-League All-Stars teams involved in the high-profile extravaganza.

Broadcast details for our match will be confirmed in due course.
