Tottenham Hotspur are in USA! I SAID, TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR ARE IN USA! Spurs are making their first hop across the pond to visit their former colonial brethren since 2015, as part of their pre-season preparations.

They will be participating in the International Champions Cup, an annual preseason tournament, and will be playing Paris St. Germain in Orlando (Florida), A.S. Roma in New York City, and Manchester City in Nashville (Tennessee).

If you’re an American soccer fan who is attending one or more of these matches, this post may be of interest to you. We’ve gathered as many fan activities as we could find and compiled them into one handy list. This includes both the official activities sponsored by the club as well as unofficial fan gatherings sponsored by the hosting city’s THFC supporters clubs and other groups.

There are probably some we missed, so if you know of other Spurs-related things that are open to the public and happening before or after one of the matches, put them in the comments and we’ll update the listings.
