Amid the buzz surrounding BTS’ upcoming performance at London’s Wembley Stadium, the temporary home to Tottenham Hotspur, the English Premier League reacted to the news by sending a welcoming message to the K-pop act.

On Wednesday evening, Tottenham wrote on its official Facebook account, “Welcome to Wembley, BTS. This is the place where Son Heung-min always cheers after scoring amazing goals. This coming June 1, another Korean superstar BTS is visiting this place to have its concert!” and shared photos of the stadium and the team’s Korean forward Son. The post also featured hashtags dedicated to BTS.

Wembley Stadium is among the largest sports and concert venues anywhere, with a capacity of 90,000 seats and 15,000 standing. It is also well known for rock band Queen’s triumphant Live Aid performance in 1985 and hosting legendary acts like the Beatles and Michael Jackson. BTS will be the first K-pop act to perform at Wembley Stadium.

BTS’ upcoming performance at the stadium is part of the group’s newly announced stadium tour, which agency Big Hit Entertainment announced Tuesday. The tour is an extension of BTS’ ongoing “Love Yourself: Speak Yourself” world tour, taking the act to eight new cities throughout the US, Brazil, Europe and Japan from May to July.

The upcoming 10-day tour follows the group’s first-ever sold-out stadium show at Citi Field in New York last year.

Upon the announcement of the world tour, BTS fans have been trending the tour’s official hashtag #SPEAK_YOURSELF on Twitter worldwide.
