National 2017 – Adelaide

The OzSpurs National weekend is the centrepiece of the OzSpurs calendar and is a not to be missed fixture for all Australian based Tottenham Hotspur fans. It is all happening again in Adelaide from 31 March to 2 April 2017.

OzSpurs is one of Tottenham Hotspur’s biggest official supporters clubs. Once a year the OzSpurs National brings Spurs fans from all over Australia to gather in one location for a weekend of all things Spurs. The first National took place in Perth in 2004, thereafter one took place every year until the last one in Melbourne in 2014. The Nationals were suspended in 2015 and 2016 as we focused on two consecutive years of visits from Tottenham to play games in Australia.

All Spurs fans are welcome, whether they are regular OzSpurs members, or brand new to the whole thing. In 2014 Kevin Woodward, who had never been to any OzSpurs events before, attended his first national. In his words “it’s like going on the best organised stag/bucks weekend you’ve ever been on, and everyone supports Spurs.” Click here to read his full, very tongue in cheek review.
