Liverpool did it to devastating effect 18 months ago, cramming almost 100,000 fans into the Melbourne Cricket Ground for a game against Melbourne Victory, which they won 2-0. Fellow big clubs took note, and now a ticket to Oz is one of the hottest post-season packages available to clubs.

Tottenham are set to become the next high-profile European team to tour Australia, but they must beat bids from both Bayern Munich and Chelsea in order to play in the potentially lucrative friendly in Sydney. 

Under the proposal, Spurs would travel immediately after their league campaign finishes on 24th May for a one-off friendly against either Western Sydney Wanderers or Sydney FC.

Due to financial constraints only one match involving a European side will be held in Sydney, with Spurs the most likely participant. However, there is also interest from German champions Bayern Munich and Premier League leaders Chelsea in playing at the 83,000-capacity stadium.

Real Madrid, Manchester City and Roma are all already slated to take part in the International Champions Cup at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in July – just before Australia’s A-League season begins.
