Tottenham Hotspur are coming back to the United States for the second time in as many years! Spurs are participating in the 2018 International Champions Cup, a preseason invitation “tournament” that will see them play matches against Roma in San Diego, Barcelona in Pasadena, and AC Milan in Minneapolis.

It’s always a party whenever Spurs travel to USA, and there are tons of supporter activities in the days before each match, sponsored by the local supporters groups. For fans who are planning to travel to the locations to attend the match, we contacted San Diego Spurs, LA Spurs, and Minneapolis Spurs to compile this list of activities that you can participate in with your fellow American Tottenham supporters.

Please note — some events are ticketed and do have costs associated with them. Others are for adults 21+. Some require pre-registration in order to attend, or have limited seating. Please read carefully and contact the local supporter’s groups directly if you have questions. All listed times are local.

Thanks to San Diego Spurs, LA Spurs, and Minneapolis Spurs for sharing their event information. COYS!
