In a statement, Saracens wrote: "Saracens, the DHL Stormers and Tottenham Hotspur are working closely together with other stakeholders to confirm the details in line with evolving Government COVID-19 safety protocols...
"The Saracens vs DHL Stormers clash could provide an exciting head-to-head reuniting a number of Springbok and England finalists from the 2019 Rugby World Cup Final in Japan, whilst also reconfirming Saracens and Tottenham Hotspur’s commitment to their innovative partnership announced back in April 2019."
Stormers head coach John Dobson said that a trip to London would provide an ideal test for his squad against the reining European Champions.
“Saracens are one of the top club teams in the world and renowned for their innovation and forward-thinking on and off the pitch, which this match is another good example of.
“This trip would give our players the chance to test themselves against a quality team in a world-class venue, and we are very much looking forward to being able to be part of this.”
Saracens Director of Rugby Mark McCall added: “We have a history of filling big stadiums in London for big games and we have also enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with the DHL Stormers and Western Province Rugby so we are very excited about this game.”
