We are delighted to announce that our Men’s first team will travel to South Korea as part of its pre-season tour of Asia this summer.

It follows an earlier announcement that the Club will also be visiting Japan in preparation for the 2024/25 season.

The Club will compete in the Coupang Play Series 2024 - a collection of pre-season matches featuring prestigious football clubs hosted, organised, and broadcasted by Coupang Play. The Coupang Play Series is globally promoted by Pitch International.

FC Bayern will also feature in the Series, with Spurs playing a fixture against the 32-time Bundesliga champions on Saturday 3rd August at the iconic Seoul World Cup Stadium.

This will be the Club’s fourth visit to South Korea, having undertaken previous trips in 2005, a promotional trip in 2017 and most recently in the Coupang Play Series 2022. The tour will be the first time Heung-Min Son represents the Club as captain in his home country.

As is Club tradition, players and staff will be engaging in a range of activities to engage with our fanbase, support good causes, deliver grassroots football programmes and celebrate local culture throughout the tour.

Alongside this, the Club’s 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.

Donna-Maria Cullen, Executive Director, Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are delighted to once again be visiting South Korea as part of our pre-season tour of Asia ahead of the 2024/25 season. It is fantastic to have the opportunity to engage with our huge fanbase in the country. I know Sonny in particular can’t wait to play again in front of his home fans, and it will be exciting for him to return while representing us as Club Captain.”

Fans can keep up to date with the latest news about our 2024 pre-season tour on our dedicated tour hub. Alternatively, follow Spurs social channels or our dedicated Korean website for the latest updates.

Further details regarding fixtures and ticket on-sales will be announced in due course, along with information about how fans can watch matches and tour content.
