Tottenham fans travel 31 hours from Dallas only to find Burnley game postponed due to heavy snowfall, but Harry Kane invites them as guests for a future game


Two Tottenham fans had the worst luck in the world when their 31-hour journey to watch their team play at Burnley turned out to be a wasteful endeavor as the game was postponed.

Turf Moor’s pitch was simply unplayable due to the snow and as a result that meant Spurs’ Premier League game was called off.

Considering how advanced the Premier League pitches are to cope with adverse conditions, it would have been a real disappointment for both clubs that they were unable to host this competition.

Nothing more than Ken and Brandi Saxton, who traveled from Dallas in the United States to watch their beloved side.

“Dallas to London to Burnley (almost there) 31 hours – no sleep,” Ken tweeted, as he detailed his train from the capital to the north of England.

“Fueled by coffee, cheese crackers and more coffee.”

While he would have been devastated to have come this far and have the game called off, it wasn’t all bad news.

The pubs were always open and like any football fan, Ken didn’t hesitate to come over for a pint.

As with all big fans, Ken’s comments were filled with kind messages, including one from former player Graham Roberts who urged the club to help the Spurs fan.

Ken and Brandi’s day went from bad to brilliant as Spurs forward Harry Kane invited them to be his guests at a game in the future.

The English star wrote: “I just got this tweet and I am absolutely disgusted for you! For your commitment and to make up for the cancellation of the match, I would like to invite you to a home match as a guest on your next visit to London.

Unsurprisingly, Kane’s offer went well and Brandi responded on Twitter: “Well the husband has officially gone viral and we have been personally invited to watch Spurs by Harry Kane !!”

However, not everyone was put off by the weather. While many were wrapped up to fight the cold, Burnley manager Sean Dyche surveyed the pitch wearing only his shirt and pants.
