Tottenham Hotspur FC recently announced that its Sydney Tour had won the 2015 Australian Event Award for Best Event. The tour took place earlier this year, when the team traveled to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and Sydney, Australia, for two friendly football matches and a number of team outings. While in Sydney, Tottenham players visited the iconic Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge, which displayed the team’s colors in honor of their visit. Later, 4,000 fans attended the team’s open training days before Tottenham’s match against Sydney FC at ANZ Stadium. With over 80,000 fans in attendance, the team achieved a 1-0 win over the Australian club.
The Australian Event Awards later named Tottenham’s local tour as a nominee in its overall events category, along with such events as PAX Australia and the Gold Coast International Marine Expo. In a gala ceremony at Doltone House Jones Bay Wharf, the Australian Event Awards named the team as its winner for Best Achievement in Marketing, Communication, and Sponsorship as well as Best Event.
