Tottenham Hotspur to wear special-edition Chinese shirts to support AIA’s Foundation
Updated: Jun 10, 2019
Tottenham Hotspur will wear the charity’s logo on the front of its shirts for the match against Leicester City on Saturday 21st March. The shirts worn by the players featuring the AIA China Youth Football Development logo will then be auctioned off to raise money to help thousands of disadvantaged young people in China gain access to life-changing sporting opportunities via the Club and AIA.
The AIA China Youth Football Development aims to provide sporting opportunities for thousands of disadvantaged young people in rural China. The programme was launched in Shanghai last year with the help of Tottenham Hotspur legends Ledley King and Steffen Freund, and coaches from the Club’s Academy.
The trip will also see two young people from Guangdong province lead the team out on to the pitch, as well as visiting Tottenham Hotspur’s world class training centre to take part in a football coaching session supported by Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli.
Mailman Group will be promoting the match (Saturday 21st March 11pm China time) with exclusive video and photo content for the Chinese channels, as well as coverage of the coaching session with the first team players.
