Tottenham announces U.S. tour
AP, March 22nd, 2012 6:06PM

MOST READ


Tottenham Hotspur, which traveled to the USA in the summer of 2010 for a series of friendlies, is coming back. The English club has announced it will play Los Angeles Galaxy July 24 and New York Red Bulls July 31. Two years ago it played the Red Bulls and San Jose, with which it formed a working partnership. This year's match against New York will be part of the inaugural New York Invitational Cup.

“The facilities will be first class and the opposition will provide a great test for the squad,” Tottenham coach Harry Redknapp said. “We know how good the MLS sides are from two summers ago when we faced San Jose Earthquakes and New York Red Bulls. We can expect another tough encounter when we face the Red Bulls again this time.

“Playing the winners of the MLS Cup in LA Galaxy will provide a real challenge too. Any team that includes proven international performers like Robbie Keane, Landon Donovan and David Beckham are sure to be top drawer.”

Tottenham shares links with the Galaxy through its owner, Anschutz Entertainment Group. Spurs and AEG joined in a failed bid to move into London’s Olympic Stadium after the 2012 Games.
