Twickenham Stadium

Home > Sports Venues > Twickenham Stadium

Welcome to Twickenham Stadium, the home of England rugby. Seating an impressive 82,000 spectators, Twickenham is the largest dedicated rugby union venue in the world.

Twickenham Stadium is a stadium located in Twickenham, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. It is the largest rugby union stadium in the world after recently being enlarged to seat 82,000. This makes it the second largest stadium in the UK after Wembley Stadium and the fourth largest stadium in Europe. The stadium is the home of the Rugby Football Union (RFU), and hosts England's home test matches, as well as the Middlesex Sevens, the Guinness Premiership final, the EDF Energy Cup and Heineken Cup matches. The stadium is considered an icon of English rugby and the 2009/2010 season saw Twickenham celebrate its centenary.

Twickenham truly is a stadium for the people. During matches, we pride ourselves on our sporting atmosphere, where the most ardent of rugby fans sit happily alongside families and children. Banter is often exchanged between rival fans but this merely adds to the inspiring atmosphere.

When the England boys and the Guinness Premiership finalists take time off, the stadium opens its doors to some of the finest musical talents around. The likes of U2, R.E.M, Bon Jovi and The Rolling Stones have all performed here over recent years.
