Major sporting event at new Spurs stadium pushed back a year

Spurs have announced the Heineken Champions Cup and European Rugby Challenge Cup finals will now be held at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in 2022.

The European rugby weekend was set to take place over 21/22 May 2021, however, in accordance with today’s (Friday) European Professional Club Rugby announcement it has forced the weekend back a year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to the outbreak, the 2020 Heineken Champions Cup and Challenge Cup finals have now been rescheduled to 2021 in the host city of Marseille.

Given that, the fixtures at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been pushed back by a year but exact dates and times will be announced in due course.

When the prestigious event does take place at the N17 ground it will be the first time in its history to take place in London outside of the home of English rugby, Twickenham Stadium.
