Harlequins are set to come up against their rivals Wasps for the second time in Big Game history when the sporting event returns to Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 29 December.
Following last year’s seven-try win against Northampton Saints, which celebrated a decade of Big Game, Harlequins are hoping for another victory this year.
The fixture which is a festive favourite for rugby fans every December is anticipated to pull in the crowds yet again, with 80,000 supporters expected to attend.
The event, popular with families year on year, will also put on a range of entertainment on the day.
In previous years entertainment has included pyrotechnic displays, unique match ball deliveries, and half-time performances from Olly Murs, Scouting for Girls, Rudimental, Lawson and X-Factor winners.
Matches between Harlequins and Wasps have produced some of the highest scoring results in Premiership history and with both sides full of England internationals the game is set to be one of the best yet.
In 2017/18, the teams met four times across all competitions with an average of over 55 points scored in each match.
The match will start at 4pm. Tickets start at £15 for children and £25 for adults and can be purchased here.
