Atlanta Spurs Supporters Club

We are honored to have two Tottenham legends joining us in Atlanta.

Recently named the 27th greatest Spurs player of all time, Steve Archibald joined the club in 1980 and played a significant part in one of the most successful periods in our history. Winning the English First Division Golden Boot in his first season with the club he would go on to score 77 goals in 185 appearances over four seasons helping the club to victory in back to back FA Cups (1980/81, 1981/82) and the UEFA Cup (1983/84). After four successful seasons at Tottenham, Steve joined Barcelona in 1984 where he would go on to win La Liga in 1984/85.

A combative, energetic, and creative midfielder, Edgar Davids was nicknamed “the Pitbull” by Louis van Gaal because of his marking ability and his aggressive tackling. After beginning his career with Ajax, Davids subsequently played in Italy for Milan and Juventus before a loan spell with Barcelona. He went on to play for Internazionale and then Tottenham Hotspur from 2005-2007, before returning to Ajax. Capped 74 times by Netherlands at the international level, he was named to the 1998 FIFA World Cup All-Star Team and is one of the players chosen by Pelé to feature in the FIFA 100, his list of the world’s greatest living footballers.

We’re making more scarves!

friedel-scarf

Due to overwhelming demand, we have sold all of our first batch of scarves. However, in order to accommodate continuing demand and make sure that everybody who wants to purchase a scarf can do so we have created a waiting list. Please complete the form below and when the next batch of scarves arrives we’ll contact you to arrange delivery. The scarves cost $15 and you can either pick up in person at one of our watch parties or we can deliver by mail for a small additional fee.

New board makeup (passed without objection):
Michael Constantinou (Chair)
Matt Stigall (Vice Chair)
Matt Gragg (Treasurer)
Larry Green (Secretary)
AJ Piplica (Social Media/Marketing)
Luke Walker (Community Outreach)

Matt Stigall is moving to Vice Chair so that he can focus more attention on Terminus Legion. Brian Bensky recently moved to Chicago. We thank them both for their previous service as founding board members of our club.

Location:
We are very happy to continue our partnership with Meehan’s Atlantic Station, and we have brought back a number of items from this summer’s North America preseason trip for them to put up around the bar. We’re happy to take any donations of other items to enhance the atmosphere, and will work to grow the Spurs presence as we go forward. Meehan’s will continue the $5 breakfast buffet this year, and they have offered the option to provide additional items potentially for an increased cost. We will only explore that option if we hear from a number of people that there is interest in an increased cost.

Goals for this year:
* Provide an inclusive community for local Spurs fans to meet online and in-person
* Attract new fans to Tottenham Hotspur
* Community outreach (in light of this, Luke Walker has joined the board in this capacity and we are looking forward to doing some community outreach work this year. Details to come)
* Above all, support the team and have fun!

Membership:
Membership is free this year. We will provide funds for the club through merchandise sales (there are a few scarves left, we expect we may run out at the West Ham season opener). We will continue to provide membership updates to the club, so if you haven’t signed up yet, you aren’t too late.

Merchandise:
We are planning to do a run of t-shirts for this season, and are looking into stickers and a few other potential items. We welcome input on any additional ideas for items we can produce and sell. We still have a (very) small number of last year’s shirts if anyone wants to purchase them.

Club budget:
$200 was carried over from last season which went towards the initial purchase of scarves, so that they could be available for the trip to Chicago. We will be using funds raised to fund our club membership fee, web hosting fees, and items for giveaways this season.

Bulk Order: We will be doing a bulk order within the next few weeks. More information to come, although we are considering collecting the money directly and paying the club to save time on having them contact everyone individually for payment.

Recreational Soccer League: We are planning to participate again, and in the process of determining exactly which league(s) to participate in. Watch this space.

Fantasy Football League: Zach Conrad will be organizing this. Watch the group for signup information coming soon!

Even though we have been around for less than two seasons, we have grown rapidly and are proud of the community that we have all built. Over 200 members in the FB group. Over 1000 Twitter followers. We look forward to an exciting season with a new manager which hopefully translates to more success on the field. Thanks for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the West Ham game on August 16 at 10 a.m.

P.S. We will be taking a group picture at the West Ham game which will be framed and put on the wall at Meehan’s. We will also be giving away a signed t-shirt from the tour!

First game at our new home pub!!! #atlspurs #coys #thfc @mannysgrantpark @harrywinks @spursofficial ...

After an exhaustive search evaluating pubs all over Metro Atlanta which also saw us hosting trial games at a number of potential venues, we are happy to finally announce that Atlanta Spurs has a new permanent home... Manny’s Grant Park!

The ownership and staff at Manny’s are super excited to partner with us to make Manny’s the go to destination for Spurs matches in Atlanta. We now look forward to decorating our new home, settling in, and getting back to the business of watching Spurs together.
This period of temporary homelessness has coincided with a downturn in fortunes on the field so we hope the opposite is now true and we look forward to seeing everybody this weekend to celebrate the start of better times ahead.
