THE HEINEKEN CHAMPIONS Cup final will continue its tour of football grounds in 2021 as Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium will host the European club rugby decider.

Tomorrow will see Leinster taking on Saracens in Newcastle’s St James’ Park, while next season’s final is set for Marseille.

The new 62,000-capacity venue, currently titled Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, will host rugby before the Champions and Challenge Cups come down for decision as Saracens have agreed a five-year deal to stage a standout fixture at the ground.

“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,” said Daniel Levy.
