Harlequins’ Big Game, sponsored by IG, has become a firm fixture in the Aviva Premiership calendar for all rugby supporters. 

Tickets for the match start from just £20 for adults and can be purchased through Harlequins by clicking here or by calling 020 8410 6000. You can also purchase tickets via Ticketmaster by clicking here.
For one match, Harlequins swap The Stoop for Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby, to host a festive fixture like none other.
Approaching its eighth year, attendances for Big Game average over 70,000 for a family day out which provides more than just a rugby match.
Off-field entertainment in previous years has included stunning pyrotechnic displays, unique match ball deliveries and entertainment performances from Mark Wright, Olly Murs, Lawson, Killer Queen, Pineapple Dance Group, The Rat Pack and X-Factor Winners Matt Cardle and Sam Bailey. 
Each year, Harlequins partner with a charity to produce a one-off match shirt exclusively for the fixture and help raise vital funds. Previous charities have included Cancer Research UK, Hope HIV, Help a London Child, Right To Play, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity and The Household Cavalry Foundation.
The Big Game attracts very prestigious opponents for Harlequins, which ensures the rugby on display is of a very high and entertaining standard, worthy of the stadium the fixture is held in. Opponents have included Exeter Chiefs and London Irish, along with previous English Premiership champions Northampton Saints, Leicester Tigers, Saracens and London Wasps.
