Spurs made history by reaching the Champions League final in 2018-19 and they will attempt to use that achievement as a launchpad in 2019-20
Tottenham may have reached the Champions League final in 2018-19, but their Premier League finish was a disappointment and they will be plotting improvement in 2019-20.
Having kept pace with Manchester City and Liverpool for much of the season, Mauricio Pochettino’s side stumbled in the final third of the campaign and finished fourth in the division.
They reached the semi-final of the Carabao Cup, losing to Chelsea, and their FA Cup run was much shorter as they bowed out at the fourth round to Crystal Palace.
Ahead of the upcoming campaign, Goal takes a look at Spurs’ pre-season friendly schedule, the club’s transfer activity and when their Premier League push begins again.

*Part of the 2019 International Champions Cup
Tottenham kick off their 2019-20 pre-season preparations in Asia this summer, with games taking place in Singapore and China, before returning home to London via Germany.
Their first friendly match is against Juventus on July 21, meaning a potential encounter with Cristiano Ronaldo, and it is part of their International Champions Cup (ICC) commitments.
A Premier League derby follows on July 25, as Spurs take on Manchester United in Shanghai, and they then make their way to Germany for a clash with Real Madrid on July 30.
Inter are the final warm-up game for the North London side and that match takes place on August 4 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Tottenham 2019-20 transfer activity
Tottenham have been noticeably quiet in recent transfer windows, but the club are expected to be more active this summer, particularly with Pochettino potentially losing patience with the lack of recruitment.
They have been linked with a number of players, including Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish, Roma star Nicola Zaniolo and Fulham prospect Ryan Sessegnon, as well as a blockbuster move for Gareth Bale.
It remains to be seen if any of those links will develop into more than just chatter, however.
The club also faces a fight to hold on to some of its best players, with Christian Eriksen linked with Real Madrid and Barcelona, while Pochettino himself has also been touted for an exit.
Fernando Llorente and Michel Vorm are set to leave the club when their contracts expire.

Tottenham 2019-20 Premier League fixtures
Tottenham will discover their Premier League schedule on the morning of June 13, when the 2019-20 season fixtures are released.
Games will kick off on August 10 and it could be a busy opening month as Pochettino’s men could potentially find themselves in UEFA Super Cup action should they win the Champions League.
Victory against Liverpool in Madrid would see Spurs face off in a London derby against either Arsenal or Chelsea in the continental curtain-raiser on August 14.
