I know Kane has always been a big NFL fan. But I do wonder if he has been “encouraged” by the club to push the subject. Quite handy for Levy that our star striker and England captain is plastered all over social media with his Super Bowl holiday snaps. I’ve no doubt he was interviewed by US broadcasters and asked about the stadium and a London franchise. Maybe I’m to cynical and it’s just a lovely coincidence.
He flew by private jet too. I mean I know Kane is a multimillionaire, but does he usually fly by Private Jet? I didn't think he did. Which would suggest the club funded his trip. You're probably right. He was in the Bahamas which was again funded by the club. I imagine the whole thing was a club trip.

I think this is great, the club are handling his injury really well, we were all desperate to see him get a rest earlier in the season and I'm hoping knowing how much Brady inspires him that he comes back with (somehow) even more fire, feeling refreshed and ready for the run in. So happy he didn't stay at home basically having fortnite sessions.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they helped with the organisation of it, it’s win win for all involved. Harry increases his global profile, as do the club. The NFL increase there’s over in England/Europe by having the current England Captain there etc etc.

I’d say it’s more a case of opportunity than anything the club pushed him to do though he’s injured and training out there and he’s a big Tom Brady fan, he’s not going to miss the chance of watching him in the Super Bowl.

I'd imagine he was a guest of Nike, and they did most of the arranging.

He was not interviewed by American television

Yeah I don’t think he was forced into anything that’s why I said “ encouraged”. He’s obviously very into it, so it’s win win all round on lots of levels.

Kane and Brady are in some ways very similar.

Neither have been blessed with any great physical attributes - Brady wasn't drafted until the 6th round, but they both have worked their arses off to reach the top of their sport.

There are many QB's with just as much, if not more natural talent than Brady - you could also say the same with Kane and other strikers. Yet with great work ethic and mental strength they are both just about the best at what they do right now.

I'm sure they are more than happy to stoke his love for the game. I mean, why wouldn't you?!

Sure we'd also benefit from Bill Belichick and the Pats joining us for a few social training sessions this summer too.

I love that Kane is constantly looking to learn from the best.

My brother lives in Atlanta and is part of the Atlanta Spurs official supporters group. Last night he messaged to say he might call at some point during the game today, and to ensure my son was around.

Never got the phone call, but he did message to explain why.
They were expecting Harry to join them in the pub they all watch our games in. Harry's brother had contacted them to find out location, time etc.
In the end neither of them turned up...
He thinks Harry is still in the Bahamas and isn't due in Atlanta until later today or tomorrow.
ATL Spurs member here. Your brother is one of two members with that surname. Both are great dudes.

Disappointing the Kane's didn't make it but it was an exciting couple of days leading up to the match.
