Spurs extend Homeless World Cup support

Tottenham Hotspur has continued their support of Team India ahead of the 8th Rio 2010 Homeless World Cup.

The partnership will see the Premier League side fund the Indian team during the upcoming competition which runs from the 19-26 September 2010.

Chairman Daniel Levy said, "Our involvement in last year's Homeless World Cup was extremely successful and we are delighted to be involved again this year.

"The Premier League is vastly growing in popularity in India, as is the support for Spurs, and so it's very satisfying that through football we can help make a positive impact as part of our global community strategy.

Mel Young, founder and president of the Homeless World Cup, added: "Homelessness is a global issue and creative partnerships are needed to address it. Spurs is a fantastic example of what a premier football brand can do to make a difference and we applaud them for it."

Tottenham Hotspur will also provide kit, coaching advice and signed memorabilia for auction as a part of the deal.
