Tottenham Hotspur Stadium To Host European Club Rugby Finals

Tottenham Hotspur's new state-of-the-art stadium will host the 2021 Champions and Challenge Cup finals in London for the first time since 2015, the inaugural season of the revamped competition.

Like St James' Park in Newcastle, which will host both the European finals this weekend, the new 62,000-seater stadium in North London will host finals weekend at the end of the 2020-21 season.

Last month, Champions Cup finalists Saracens struck a deal with Spurs to host an annual game at the stadium over the next five years. It follows on from deals between the club and the NFL as the venue attempts to become the home of the NFL in Europe.

This morning's news strengthens the link between the oval ball game and the new stadium even further.

We are excited to have been selected to host this prestigious weekend, the pinnacle of European club rugby, in 2021 and to have this opportunity to welcome EPCR and rugby fans from around the world to Tottenham to experience our new home.

These games will add to the portfolio of world-class sporting and entertainment events our multi-use venue will stage in this new leisure destination for London.
