Sounders to host Tottenham in summer friendlyDecember 30, 2013 @ 10:15 am (Updated: 6:18 pm - 12/30/13 )
TUKWILA, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Sounders will host Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur in a summer exhibition match.
Seattle announced the friendly on Monday, adding to an impressive list of exhibitions the Sounders have hosted. The match will take place on July 19, less than a week after the conclusion of the World Cup.
This will be Seattle's first exhibition match since 2012 after not hosting a friendly last season. Seattle hosted Chelsea in 2012, Manchester United in 2011, and both Chelsea and FC Barcelona in 2009. The Sounders are winless in those four matches.
Tottenham's visit it part of a preseason tour of the U.S. They are also scheduled to face the Chicago Fire on July 26.
