Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has expressed his delight after it was confirmed that the club’s new state of the art stadium will host of one of next year’s Rugby League Ashes Test matches.
Rugby League hasn’t held an Ashes series since 2003, however 2020 will once again see Australia travel to the UK to face England.
Spurs’ new 62,000 capacity stadium, which was opened in April, will host the third match of the series on 14 November, following the success of the recent NFL games played at the venue.
“An Ashes Test not only sees us host one of sport’s great rivalries in England and Australia, but we’ll also have the chance to see players at the very pinnacle of Rugby League with these teams having contested the most recent World Cup Final in 2017,” Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy told Spurs’ website.
“We are excited to add another prestigious sport to our portfolio of world-class sporting and entertainment events that our multi-use venue will stage and we look forward to welcoming Rugby League fans to our home next year.”
