Tottenham Hotspur’s Pre-Season Tour of Asia: Fixtures and Expectations

As we know, Tottenham Hotspur will be heading to Asia as part of their pre-season preparations this summer. They will visit Japan and South Korea as part of the tour, playing against some of the best that the region has to offer, as well as a familiar face who is at a European heavyweight.

The club has already confirmed their schedule, with the following games having been made:

  • Vissel Kobe – Saturday 27 July
  • Team K League – Wednesday 31 July
  • FC Bayern – Saturday 3 August

The games to be played against Team K League and FC Bayern will be part of the Coupang Play Series 2024 and will take place at the Seoul World Cup Stadium. The latter of the two games could see us reunited with Harry Kane, albeit in opposing colours. These games could present a valuable betting opportunity, as sports betting sites like Betway are expected to have odds and markets available for them. Additionally, Betway offers a variety of betting options, which may allow fans to engage more deeply with the matches and explore potential opportunities for these exciting fixtures.

This tour will come following the controversial end-of-season trip to Melbourne, Australia, just days after the Premier League season came to an end; one that some may still feel ended in slightly disappointing fashion given the start that Ange Postecoglou’s team had started the campaign.

What should we expect from the Asia pre-season tour?

As with any pre-season tour, it’s difficult to know what to expect and to expect too much at the same time. Some of Spurs’ stars will have been competing at the 2024 European Championships or 2024 Copa America. It seems unlikely that any of them will be at the Olympics this summer, which could be a good thing for the club. As a result, we might not see the full squad be available for the tour of Japan and South Korea.

Postecoglou will likely be demanding the very best from his players and will want to see them go through their paces. It will be warm weather and should provide a good challenge to see where they are after a break.

A strong start is going to be needed in the Premier League, as the club will have ambitions of improving upon last season’s performances and challenging for a place in the Champions League. Betway will have markets on them trying to achieve a top-four finish, and depending on how the season starts, it could be better to try and get value as soon as possible.

The Asian tour will be a good opportunity to get the players’ legs moving once again, especially as they will start the Premier League season away to Leicester City in the first Monday Night Football. We’ve seen what can happen to an established side in England’s top league when they come up against a newly promoted side under the lights, and Spurs will need to make sure they don’t fall victim in front of everyone like our fierce north London rivals once did over at Brentford a few years ago.
