​Tottenham travel to Hong Kong for post season friendly

Tottenham will play a post-season friendly in Hong Kong just five days after their Premier League campaign comes to an end, reports the London Evening Standard.

Mauricio Pochettino's side will travel to the Far East for a game against Kitchee SC at the Hong Kong Stadium on Friday May 26, with kick-off scheduled for 8pm local time (1pm UK time).

Pochettino said: "We are delighted to accept the invitation to return to Hong Kong to play against one of their top clubs Kitchee SC and play our part in the anniversary celebrations.

"We are aware of our growing popularity across Asia. This latest visit represents a great chance for us to engage with our loyal fans in the region and thank them for their fantastic support and the commitment they make to watching us at any hour of the day or night.

"It promises to be a fantastic experience for all the staff and players, some whom will be visiting Hong Kong for the first time, and a great way to conclude what has been an exciting season for the club."

Tottenham's shirt sponsor, AIA Group, has its headquarters in Hong Kong and the insurance group will run a series of "community events" during Spurs' visit to the region.
