Tottenham Hotspur Withdraw from NextGen Series

White Hart Lane will no longer be hosting NextGen Series football until next season

Tottenham Hotspur have withdrawn from this years NextGen Series – despite reaching the semi final.

The club has issued a statement saying:

“It is with regret that we have decided to withdraw from the semi finals of the NextGen Tournament due to an accidental breach of a competition regulation. We have done so fully respecting the Tournament regulations.

“As a club, we stand for the highest levels of integrity and respect and there was no unfair advantage sought or gained.

“Whilst hugely disappointing for players, staff and supporters, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support.”

The official NextGen Series website broke the news earlier today.

This statement comes after Tottenham beat Liverpool only a few days ago by a single goal to progress to the semi-finals.

The news means that Liverpool will now play in the semi-finals against either Ajax or Barcelona and will join the other two remaining teams in the form of Inter Milan and Marseille.
