Tottenham Hotspur Football Club confirms the Tottenham Tribute Trust emblem will feature on special edition match day shirts for The White Hart Lane Finale.
The Club have previously announced the Tottenham Tribute Trust would be the designated charity for the Finale.
The match day shirts will be auctioned to raise funds for the Tottenham Tribute Trust.
Tottenham Hotspur today confirmed that the First Team squad will wear special edition match day shirts that will pay tribute to both White Hart Lane and the Tottenham Tribute Trust in the final home game ever to be played at the world famous Stadium against Manchester United on Sunday 14th May 2017.
The Club announced last week that the Tottenham Tribute Trust would be the charity supported throughout The Finale of The Lane and it has now been confirmed that the Tottenham Tribute Trust emblem will feature on the front of the commemorative match day shirts alongside the Official Shirt Sponsor AIA, who have kindly agreed to this inclusion in support of the important work of the Tottenham Tribute Trust.
Following the conclusion of the fixture all match worn shirts will be signed by the squad before being auctioned along with other stadium memorabilia to raise funds for the Tottenham Tribute Trust. AIA will also be supporting additional fund raising activities.
In addition, the First Team will also wear special edition warm up t-shirts prior to this momentous fixture, which will also bear the names of AIA and the Tottenham Tribute Trust.
The Tottenham Tribute Trust was established in 2002 through a joint initiative between Daniel Levy and founder Trustees. Run by a Board of voluntary, independent trustees, the Tottenham Tribute Trust supports former players and staff alleviating both financial and medical need. The Tottenham Tribute Trust regularly works alongside the PFA (via its Benevolent Fund) to maximise the help that can be provided.
Jonathan Adelman, Chair of the Tottenham Tribute Trust, said: “We should like to thank the Club for giving the Tottenham Tribute Trust this opportunity and AIA for agreeing to our inclusion alongside them on the front of the match day shirts for such a momentous game.”
“The match day shirts will truly be unique collectors’ items which we hope will help raise significant funds at auction. These funds will enable us to continue helping those who helped make White Hart Lane such a special place for Spurs fans.”
Daniel Levy, Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, said: “We are delighted and grateful to AIA for extending this opportunity to the Tottenham Tribute Trust, which will serve to increase awareness of the support provided to the wider Spurs family. Our former players are the lifeblood of this Club and there is no more appropriate cause than the Tottenham Tribute Trust at such an historic time for the Club.”
Mark Saunders, Group Chief Strategy Officer of AIA, commented: “We are proud to have Spurs as our partner and delighted to be able to support them for such a worthy cause. They do such great work in the community and, more widely, their social altruism is truly honourable and wonderful to be associated with. The Spurs philosophy is aligned with AIA’s in making a positive difference by helping people live longer, healthier, better lives. The Tottenham Tribute Trust is yet another powerful example of the good they do.”
