Spurs to face Gunners in pre-season series

Old adversaries, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal will meet in a pre-season fixture as part of a tournament raising funds and awareness, supporting better mental health.

The Mind Series will also feature Chelsea – the London trio competing on a round-robin basis as a curtain-raiser to the 2021/22 season.

The Lilywhites travel to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, August 4, before hosting the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday 8.

Speaking to www.tottenhamhotspur.com, Paul Farmer, Chief Executive of Mind, said: “We’re delighted that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have come together to back Mind’s work through the Mind Series. 

“We know from our work in the sector, including our charity partnership with the EFL, that football has the power to create real change, not least around mental health. 

“The platform that these three huge clubs can provide us with will allow us to get our message out to thousands more people that they have somewhere to turn when they need support. 

“The Mind Series is not only a brilliant way to raise awareness about mental health, but it will also provide vital funding for our services at a time when more people than ever need Mind’s help. Our message to fans is simple: whoever you support, Mind is here to support you.”

The Mind Series schedule is as follows:
