The two sides have signed a five-year deal and will see rugby join
the NFL in playing matches at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which after
prolonged delays will finally host Spurs' first team in Premier League
action on Wednesday.
Saracens have in recent years played their 'Big Game' - normally against Harlequins - at either Wembley or the London Stadium.
Their chairperson Nigel Wray said the agreement is special for him as he
spent his childhood watching Spurs at their old White Hart Lane
"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 Wray.
"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!"
Spurs chairperson Daniel Levy said the deal would be of enormous financial benefit to the neighbourhood.
"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," said Levy.
Aside from the 'Big Game' the stadium - which has a capacity of just
over 62 000 - will welcome two NFL matches in the 2019 season.
