Spurs are heading down under again this summer after also touring there in 2015 and will play the Italian and Spanish giants in games at Melbourne’s iconic MCG as part of their pre-season schedule.

The games are part of the Australian leg of the International Champions Cup with Mauricio Pochettino’s side taking on current Serie A champions Juve on Tuesday July 26, before the clash with Atletico on Friday July 29.

Pochettino said: “The announcement of Atletico Madrid as the fourth team in the International Champions Cup Australia is a great addition to this competition.

“Playing two of Europe’s best teams in Melbourne will be a strong test for us and we hope to put on a great show for our fans in both matches as a way of thanking them for their incredible support throughout this and every season.

“We loved our experience in Australia last summer. We still talk about the amazing support we received and so we are all really looking forward to experiencing even more when we return in July.”
