Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham compete in the Mind Series in August to promote mental health awareness.

The friendship tournament with three teams planned for the first week of August marks the start of the Premier League season 2021/22.

Arsenal face Spurs in a non-competitive North London derby for the first time since 1990, while Champions League winners Chelsea will face Spurs in their first game in front of their own fans at Stamford Bridge after their European triumph in Porto .

Funds raised from the series will be shared between the mental health charity Mind and the respective club foundations, each of which runs projects to support mental health and well-being in communities at home and abroad.

Fabio Paratici, Spurs’ Managing Director of Football, said: “We are very excited to be attending the Mind Series – another fantastic example of how football clubs can join forces to support such important causes.

“We expect the games to be highly competitive London derbies that will inspire fans for the coming season and at the same time prepare the players perfectly. The interest it creates will in turn give a tremendous and much-needed boost to Mind – a charity that has played such an important role in so many people’s lives after the difficult times we have all experienced – as does our own foundations. “

Details on ticket availability and the number of visitors allowed at the venues will be announced.

£ 5 of every ticket sold goes to charity, with Mind receiving 25 percent of the income from each of the three Mind Series games and each club’s foundation receiving 75 percent of the income from their home game.
