Tottenham Hotspur have announced that the club will be playing several friendlies in the United States this summer as part of their 2017 preseason tour.
The Lilywhites have confirmed three friendlies thus far, all part of the 2017 International Champions Cup. It’s quite possible that the club may announce additional friendlies against MLS teams, but no plans have been publicly announced yet.
In its three matches that have been announced as of press time, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will face Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma and Manchester City. Tottenham will play those games in Florida, New Jersey and Tennessee respectively.
Daniel Levy, Chairman, said: “We are delighted to be taking part in the International Champions Cup this summer – a competition that will provide our players with ideal preparation for the season ahead and give our passionate US fanbase a unique chance of seeing the team test themselves against top European opposition in their home country.
“This will be the fifth time in the space of seven years that the Club has toured the United States and our following in the region has grown significantly during that time – we currently have 64 Official Supporters’ Clubs across North America, more than any other Premier League team.
“The Club is also committed to supporting the game at grassroots level across the States with a comprehensive and authentic youth coaching program, including two ‘super clubs’, with young players benefitting from methods developed within an Academy that has produced the likes of Harry Kane, Danny Rose and Harry Winks in recent years.
“Furthermore, Tottenham Hotspur’s connections with the United States will continue to strengthen as our new world-class stadium in Tottenham becomes a London home for the NFL once it opens in 2018, hosting a minimum of two regular season games a year – bringing the world’s two biggest sports together for the first time.
“When the team visits in July, you can expect our players to be visible in all three cities, meeting fans, supporting our grassroots coaching programme [sic] we will have running alongside the tour, taking part in community activities and immersing themselves in local culture.”
