UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists Tottenham Hotspur will visit South Africa during July for three fixtures against local crowd-pullers Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates.

Officials said the London-based club, who were defeated 5-0 on aggregate in Champions League last week by Real Madrid, will face Chiefs on 16 July, Pirates three days later, and the winners of a play-off between the Soweto rivals in a 23 July tour finale.

Tottenham proved popular when they toured South Africa four years ago and their European exploits plus the presence of Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year Gareth Bale is expected to draw large crowds.
