Tottenham Hotspur confirm MK Dons and Leyton Orient pre-season friendlies as club gears up for new season
The Tottenham Hotspur official club website has confirmed that the team will be playing against MK Dons and Leyton Orient in their pre-season friendlies for the 2021/22 campaign.
Both matches are scheduled to take place next month. The game against Leyton Orient will be played at The Breyer Group Stadium on Saturday 17 July, at 3 P.M, where Spurs will compete for the JE3 Foundation Trophy. (h/t Official Tottenham Hotspur website)
The trophy is held in the memory of former Spurs defender and Orient manager, Justin Edinburgh, who passed away two years ago. £2 from each match ticket goes to the JE3 foundation that is set up in his memory and aims to support UK heart health charities.
The Lilwhites will then travel to Stadium MK to take on MK Dons on Wednesday 28 July, with the match kicking off at 7:45 P.M. The club statement clarifies that as of now, away fans are not allowed to attend either of the two matches.
Spurs confirm two more friendlies
“At present, due to COVID-19 related restrictions, there is no provision for away supporters to attend either match. However, should that situation change and an away allocation be permitted we shall communicate details in due course.”
The confirmation of these two matches comes after Spurs already confirming two pre-season London derbies. They take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on 4th August before a home game against Arsenal on 8th August. (h/t football.london)
Spurs players, mostly the ones not on international duty, will start reporting back to base on July 5th to begin training for the new season that lies ahead.

The club would be hoping they have a better campaign than the one they just had – where they missed out on the top 6 and lost a League Cup final. But before that, they would have to appoint a new manager – a search that seems to be never-ending.
