Officials here said the London club, beaten 5-0 on aggregate 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 should ensure sell-out crowds.
