Having had to cancel last year’s event due to Covid-19, customers of Kumho had the chance to participate in an annual money-can’t-buy five-a-side tournament at Tottenham’s iconic training centre at Hotspur Way. Eight different teams, all managed by a different Spurs icon battled it out in an exciting day of varied activities.
Kumho and Tottenham Continue to Diversify Their Partnership
Having recently renewed its partnership with Tottenham Hotspur, Kumho could treat some of its customers to a memorable day at the Hotspur ground. Kumho participants travelled to the grounds from all corners of the UK. Once at the grounds they received a tour of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before going on the Dare Skywalk, traversing the glass walkway that surrounds the club’s iconic Cockerel statue at a breath-taking 46.8m above the pitch. Having returned to ground-level, the participants travelled to the training centre and began preparations for the game with their appointed Manager. The star-studded line-up consisted of Micky Hazard, Graham Roberts, Martin Chivers, Pat Jennings, Paul Allen, Mark Falco, Gary Mabbutt and Steve Sedgley.
The teams were named after those competing in Euro 2020, with the addition of Northern Ireland in recognition of celebrated Irish goalkeeper Pat Jennings. The final was a fierce clash between Germany and Scotland, with the latter, managed by Graham Roberts, running out eventual winners.
A Kumho Tyre UK spokesperson said of the big event: “We are most grateful to Tottenham Hotspur for putting on such an enjoyable day for our customers. Having such footballing greats managing the teams was something that will be remembered by all of our customers in attendance. Unique experiences like this are just one of the many reasons we are delighted to have extended our partnership with Tottenham.”
