Tottenham vs Shakhtar Donetsk: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch

The club friendly between Tottenham and Shakhtar Donetsk on Sunday will be staged in the form of a charity match in order to raise funds for the people of Ukraine in the aftermath of the ongoing Russian invasion.

It is also set to be the first game for Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium dugout, before facing Barcelona in the Joan Gamper Trophy final ahead of the London outfit's 2023-24 Premier League opening game at Brentford on August 13.

Manor Solomon was allowed to join the Premier League side on a free transfer following a FIFA ruling that was not in favour of Shakhtar Donetsk. There have been tensions between the two sides ever since but there also comes an opportunity to bridge the gaps on Sunday.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
