The Tottenham Hotspur stadium will be the host for Saracens once every season after the two clubs have signed an agreement for five years starting from the 2020/21 season.

This stadium in North London has a capacity of 62,062 that includes a single tier home southern stand of 17,500 capacity and is already set to host two NFL matches later this year.

“As someone brought up at White Hart Lane, for me and Saracens it’s a really special opportunity for us to partner with our fellow north Londoners, with whom we share so many of our core values," said the chairman of Saracens Nigel Wray.

“Tottenham Hotspur have shown themselves to be true innovators in the development of their new stadium and I know you will all share in my excitement at the news that we will make their ground the home of our showpiece fixture.

“Not only this but they are, like us, a club who care massively about their community; who strive to create opportunities in their local area, and who have had such an impact on the young people they work with. The new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will dramatically impact the whole area.

“Together with Spurs we have the opportunity to create something very special in north London. I really do look forward to seeing our partnership come to life!”

Meanwhile, Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur Chairman is excited about the opportunity to host one of the most dominant Premiership sides and is confident of making a successful atmosphere for the spectators.

"This agreement with Saracens further reinforces our aspiration to deliver a world-class multi-use venue in our home of Tottenham.

"To attract one of world rugby's biggest club sides will bring a new audience to the area, as well as help drive significant socio-economic benefits for businesses and local people, as we continue to underline our commitment to the regeneration of north Tottenham.

"We look forward to welcoming Saracens and their fans to Tottenham and delivering world class rugby matchday experiences, showcasing our new stadium and all the surrounding area has to offer”
