Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium will host the 2021 Champions Cup final, it has been announced.

The EPCR have moved the showpiece event away from traditional rugby stadiums in recent years, with Newcastle's St James' Park hosting tomorrow's decider between Leinster and Saracens, while Bilbao's San Mames Stadium was the venue in 2018.

Next year's game has already been announced as taking place in Marseille, and although there was speculation that Amsterdam might host the 2021 final, it will instead be played in Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

It will be the seventh final to be held in England and the first in London that isn't taking place at Twickenham.
