Tottenham have reached an agreement with Premiership Rugby side Saracens to host their annual ‘Big Game’ at their stunning new stadium, the Premier League club have announced.
The fixture, which usually takes place during March, has previously been held at both Wembley and the London Stadium.
The latter held this year’s match, which Sarries won 27-20 last week.
Premiership Rugby becomes the third sport confirmed to take place at Spurs’ new ground, which officially opens on Wednesday.
As well as football and rugby, there is a long-term agreement with NFL to host regular season matches at the £1billion structure.
It is believed Tottenham hope to host NFL’s flagship fixture, the Super Bowl, in the coming years.
