Message from our New Chair as the Season is about to start.
Spurs Canada Mission
To provide a member environment for Spurs fans across Canada to fuse their passion, through camaraderie, towards the advancement of the club on and off the pitch.
Spurs Canada Vision
To ensure all existing and new Spurs fans in Canada know of the club, the membership value, and the camaraderie, such that THFC is proactive and responsive to Canadian fans of Tottenham Hotspur.
Hello all, welcome to our new members and welcome back to those returning. A special thank you to those not near a chapter or that cannot make it for live games – many of you long time time members.
2016/17 promises to be an exciting season for the team. We as a club, look forward to ensuring you places to watch the game and people to share the Spurs passion.
My name is Greg Polimis and I’m the new Chairman of the SpursCanada Supporters Club. It’s my fifth year as a member and I’ve been a Spurs fan since 1982. You’ll pretty much always find me at the Yard on a Saturday – and I’m really looking forward to 10:00AM EST games this year! I’ve been fortunate enough to meet most of the Toronto/GTA/Southern Ontario members over the last year and am hoping to make it to Ottawa and BC this year.
This is the 16th year for Spurs Canada and we’re planning a few things to bring added benefit to our members:
Supporters’ Trust Membership
Spurs Canada are joining the Supporters’ Trust this year. All Spurs Canada members will also be members of the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust. We will publish more details on the web site and Facebook how you as a member can take advantage of this.
We have a new chapter forming in Windsor! That’ll save a few of you the drive to Toronto this season…
Other good news are that Ottawa can now call Hometown Heroes on ? their new home. I’m looking forward to visiting this season!
Vancouver of course continue their extremely successful residence at the Bimini – those lockdown parties sound like way too much fun for an easterner!
We also have continued interest in Calgary and Montreal. If you are in either city and can help let us know especially if you can suggest a bar at which to meet.
White Hart Lane Tickets
Limited capacity and high demand have brought changes to the ticketing process. For home games, there are strict deadlines by when we must request tickets. Details are posted on our web site and will be posted to the Facebook page. Spurs Canada have an allocation for each home game (despite reduced capacity at the Lane) and we are still hoping to offer our members seating in their preferred areas of WHL.
Away and Champions’ League Group Stage Tickets
We’re still assuming business as usual for away games but have been officially informed of reduced allocations. Best to submit your request well in advance then be patient – the club are very good at responding quickly when necessary and we will submit away game requests on receipt.
The club confirmed they will only sell Champions League group stage ticket packs until month end. Remaining tickets would then be sold as individual games but we have no guarantees of getting any. Still, they did not (and could have) say they will not offer us tickets if any are left.
Membership Cards are Back
We’re returning to membership cards this year and have foregone the premium membership item in favour of a new arrangement with THFC that’ll give us flexibility in what we are able to offer. Some things to bring to your attention:
Early Bird Draw
Sign up soon to have a chance at winning at 2016/17 kit – there’s still time – midnight tonight (Friday 12th August) so don’t delay!
SpursCanada Hall of Fame Nominations Requested
Nominations for this year’s Hall of Fame induction are now open. Do you know a Spurs Canada member that belongs? Let us know!
We will soon have pics of the Rockland United Soccer Club – a youth organization to whom, in line with our vision statement, we donated some kits. It’ll really bring a smile to your face when you see the pics!
All setup, don’t forget to join! All members should have the PIN to access.
We are also hoping for a club visit next summer as THFC are due back in North America for preseason.
