Tottenham Hotspur and A.S. Roma fans, mark your calendars.

The Premier League and Serie A sides will play in a friendly match on Jul 26 at the Singapore National Stadium.

The game is part of the teams’ pre-season tour and is slated to kick off at 7.30pm.

Spurs will also open its training session on Jul 25 to fans.

Tickets for the match and the training session will go on sale via Ticketek Singapore on May 8 from 10am.

The Premier League team, which lies in sixth in the current standings, feature the likes of South Korean Son Heung-min, Brazilian Richarlison and Englishman Harry Kane – who has been linked with moves away from the club in the summer.

They are currently without a head coach after Antonio Conte was sacked in March. Ryan Mason is in charge on an interim basis, taking over from Cristian Stellini who was sacked after Spurs suffered a heavy defeat to Newcastle in April.

Spurs last visited Singapore in 2019 as part of the International Champions Cup, where they defeated Juventus 3–2.

The London side will take on a familiar face in AS Roma’s head coach Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese was the Spurs’ manager from 2019 to 2021.

Roma fans can also look forward to welcoming the likes of Nicola Zalewski, Chris Smalling and Argentinian forward Paulo Dybala, who was part of the 2022 World Cup-winning team.

The Italian side will begin its Asian tour in Singapore before heading to South Korea.
