Now that the 2018/19 season has drawn to a close, the next time we see the Spurs boys on the pitch will be in the pre-season friendlies that begin in late July.
Over the past few seasons, Tottenham have competed in pre-season tournaments all over the globe.

Spurs Web Opinion
It’s great to see us competing in some of the biggest pre-season tournaments in the world again this year. As mentioned, these tournaments offer great brand exposure for the club.
They also give the players a great opportunity to regroup ahead of the season, as well as the chance for some of the more junior members of the squad to get some game time.
