Tottenham set to face Sounders and Fire
[DATEBOOK] The Seattle Sounders will host Tottenham on July 19 in a meeting of Clint Dempsey's current MLS club and former
English Premier League club. The game will be part of Spurs' U.S. tour that will also include a match against the Chicago Fire a week later at Toyota Park.
Dempsey joined Spurs from
Fulham in August 2012 and moved to the Sounders a year later. He has re-joined Fulham on a two-month loan that begins with a New Year's Day game against West Ham. Tottenham is currently tied for
seventh in one of the most competitive races in the history of the EPL.
"Tottenham Hotspur has established themselves as one of the top teams in arguably the toughest league in the
world," Sounders owner and general manager Adrian Hanauer said in a statement. "We are proud to have them be a part of this year's friendly and will continue to
strive to bring the strongest competition to CenturyLink Field."
