SUMMER FRIENDLIES UPDATE: SPURS VISIT SAN JOSE

SUMMER FRIENDLIES UPDATE: SAN JOSE EARTHQUAKES v TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR

Lost amid the announcements last week of Tottenham Hotspur playing in the New York Football Challenge along with hosts New York Red Bull, fellow Premiership side Manchester City and Sporting Lisbon of Portugal was the details of the date Spurs has with San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium on July 17.

The two clubs signed a partnership agreement in 2008 hoping to open a dialogue on both soccer and commercial development and exchanging ideas that could be effective in both organizations.

So far the Earthquakes technical staff has visited Spurs Lodge on numerous occasions, and the Quakes have used the Tottenham Hotspur training facility as a base for this season’s pre-season preparations. Now comes Spurs plans to visit San Jose.

“The summer camp will be a very important part of our preparations for the new campaign and we’re looking forward to heading out to the United States in the summer,” said Spurs manager Harry Redknapp.  “I spent some time out there during the 1970s playing and coaching in Seattle and any chance I get to go back there is something I always look forward to.”

Tickets for the match are included in the package for Earthquake season ticket holders but go on sale to the public on May 10.
