Son Heung-min, the captain of the national football team and playing as a striker for Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League (EPL), will run in front of domestic fans wearing a club uniform.
With Tottenham’s Korean tour confirmed for the pre-season this summer, Son Heung-min is expected to play his first game against the K-League All-Star team on July 13th.
Tottenham Hotspur said on the club’s website on the 14th, “During the Korean pre-season tour this summer, we will play our first match with the All-Stars, made up of the best players in the K-League. The kick-off time is undecided.”
This match between Team K League and Tottenham will be held as part of the ‘Coupang Play Series’ hosted by Coupang Play and sports marketing agency Peach International.
Previously, Tottenham Hotspur announced the news of this summer’s visit to Korea in February, but the specific schedule has not been announced.
In the Coupang Play series, the second match between Son Heung-min’s Tottenham Hotspur and Lee Kang-in’s 20-year-old Mallorca (Spanish La Liga) will be held as the second match.
It is highly likely that the match will be held outside the metropolitan area in consideration of local soccer fans.
Previously, Spurs toured Asia three times in 2015, 2017, and 2019 during the pre-season, but Korea was excluded from the visit for schedule reasons.
