Domestic fans are very interested in the game of Tottenham Hotspur in the English Premier League (EPL), the team of Heung-Min Son (30).

Tottenham Hotspur will face off against Team K League, which consists of K-League players, at the Seoul World Cup Stadium at 8 pm on the 13th of next month. Three days later, at 8 pm on the 16th, at the Suwon World Cup Stadium, they will play against the prestigious Spanish La Liga club Sevilla.

According to Coupang Play, the organizer of this visit to Korea, tickets for the Tottenham and Team K League match started at 3 pm on the 17th, and over 66,000 seats were sold out in 25 minutes. Tottenham Hotspur and Seville Gyeonggi-do were sold from 3 pm on the 19th, and all of the 40,000 seats were sold in 20 minutes.

Tottenham’s visit to Korea is one of the pre-season Asian tour events. The five major European football leagues, including the EPL, start in August every year and continue until May of the following year. During the pre-season for about two months before the start of the next season, they sometimes tour other countries for overseas fans.

It is the first time in 17 years that Tottenham will play in Korea since the 2005 Peace Cup. At the time, Tottenham won the title. In 2017, he visited Korea for promotional purposes without a match. In this game, not only Son Heung-min but also his best friend, England national football team captain Harry Kane (29), can be seen. The two players jointly scored 41 goals, the most in EPL history. New players joining Tottenham this time, including Ivan Perisic (33), and Tottenham manager Antonio Conte (53) will also meet directly with domestic fans.

Interest in Sevilla, the opponent of Tottenham, is also high. Sevilla, like Tottenham Hotspur, is a team that qualified for the UEFA Champions League next season, and ranked 12th in the UEFA club rankings for the 2021-2022 season, two places higher than Tottenham (14th). They are also a strong team with a long tradition of winning the UEFA Europa League six times, the most in history.

Fans who have not been able to get tickets for the two visits to Korea are flocking to second-hand trading sites. As of the 20th, on second-hand trading sites such as Secondhand Nara, there were articles asking for tickets, such as ‘I’ll add 100,000 won to the regular price’. Ticket prices are soaring to the extent that there is an article saying that two 3rd class B tickets for 30,000 won are sold for 350,000 won, which is about six times the regular price.
