    JJ and Janelle Comeau to travel to new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this Saturday to finish epic trip in honour of Janelle's late brother Jason

    JJ and Janelle Comeau will make a special Atlantic crossing this week to complete an emotional journey at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

    Last year, the couple who live in Boston, MA quit their jobs to embark on an epic trip in honour of?Janelle's brother Jason, who passed away from acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2016 and dreamt of?visiting every Premier League stadium with his sister.

    Their tour started at Wembley Stadium, where Spurs were playing while their new stadium was being built. It was the first of 24 fixtures for them in 78 days.

    "I can't even describe how excited we were to finally walk through the turnstile and begin this journey," says JJ. "It was just an unbelievable experience."

    They visited each of the 20 teams' stadiums, apart from one.

    By the time they were due to fly home, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium was not yet ready.

    "We couldn't believe it," said Janelle. "We were disappointed that we couldn't get there."

    But this weekend the pair will complete their adventure, courtesy of the Premier League and Tottenham Hotspur.

    They will fly Janelle and JJ to London for Saturday's home match against Huddersfield Town.

    They were told the good news by NBC Sports's lead Premier League anchor Rebecca Lowe last week when they were invited to tell their story on NBC at the recent?Premier League Mornings Live event in Boston.
