LONDON — Two Tottenham Hotspur fans who travelled 34 hours from Texas to watch them play Burnley on Sunday only for snow to postpone the game have been invited to a home game as Harry Kane's guests.
Spurs striker Kane responded after reading of Dallas couple Ken and Brandi Saxton's misfortune on Twitter.
The Premier League game at Burnley was postponed shortly before kickoff after heavy snowfall at Turf Moor.
"Most people that I've interacted with on Twitter have spoken about how gutted I must feel or how disappointing everything must have been," Ken Saxton told the BBC on Monday.
"But I came over here mainly to be with my friends and make new ones. So, football or not, I was able to hang out with some really incredible people and meet some new ones."
They now plan to attend Thursday's home game against Brentford and as reward for their efforts have been invited to enjoy the game as guests of England skipper Kane.
Just been sent this tweet and absolutely gutted for you! For your commitment and to make up for the match being called off I’d like to invite you to a home game as my guest when you’re next in London https://t.co/wB3c8c40HN— Harry Kane (@HKane) November 28, 2021
"Just been made aware of this tweet and absolutely gutted for you," Kane said on Twitter.
"For your commitment and to make up for the match being called off I'd like to invite you to a home game as my guest when you're next in London."
