About Twickenham Stadium

Twickenham Stadium - occasionally known as Twickenham, or in jest as Twickers - is situated in the Twickenham area of Richmond upon the Thames. It is world renowned as the largest stadium on Earth devoted to rugby. Only Wembley Stadium is larger in the United Kingdom.

Twickenham Stadium plays host to England's home rugby matches and serves as the headquarters for the Rugby Football Union. Additionally, many important rugby matches are held at this stadium including the LV Cup, the Middlesex Seven, and the Heineken Cup. Over a century old, Twickenham celebrated its one-hundredth birthday during the 2009/2010 rugby season.

While rugby is Twickenham's primary attraction, this stadium also presents a variety of unique rock and roll concerts. Iconic figures and bands such as Bon Jovi, U2, Lady Gaga, and Iron Maiden have headlined concerts on its grounds. For over fifty years, Twickenham Stadium has hosted the annual conference for Jehovah's Witnesses.

Two men, William Williams and William Cail, envisioned Twickenham Stadium. They procured a ten-acre site in Twickenham, formerly a cabbage patch, during the early twentieth century. Seating stands and other necessary infrastructure were erected in 1908, and the stadium hosted its first game on October 2nd, 1909, between Richmond and the Harlequins. An international match, England versus Wales, followed in 1910. Twickenham Stadium was re-purposed during World War I for sheep and cattle grazing.

At the conclusion of World War I, rugby matched resumed at Twickenham Stadium. In 1926, the stadium played host to the first Varsity Match. For the fiftieth anniversary celebration of Twickenham, England and Wales teamed up to beat Ireland and Scotland. During a particularly fraught game against Ireland in 1988, Twickenham adopted the Negro spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" as their terrace song, which is still sung today.

Twickenham was the home of several important rugby matches including the 1991 Rugby World Cup. In 1999, some of the Rugby World Cup games, that were originally to be hosted by Wales, were moved to Twickenham. Twickenham was dubbed the "Fortress Twickenham" as England boasted an unprecedented nineteen straight wins from 1999 to 2004. Twickenham Stadium also hosted a match, featuring players from the Southern Hemisphere and Northern Hemisphere, sponsored by the International Rugby Board to raise money for the United Nations World Food Program.

Twickenham Stadium can hold crowds of up to 55,000 individuals, making it popular with famous bands and singers. The Rolling Stones played their show, A Bigger Bang, at the stdium and returned in 2003 to record their DVD Four Flicks. Genesis also drew huge crowds when it played Twickenham in 2007. Lady Gaga made history when she sold out her September 2012 concert dates in under a single minute.

Twickenham Stadium is also the home of the World Rugby Museum. This museum concerns itself with the history of rugby throughout the world. Featuring rotating exhibitions, the World Rugby Museum gives interested viewers the opportunity to see obscure and unique paraphernalia from rugby's storied past. Guided tours of Twickenham Stadium are available through the The World Rugby Museum on non-game days.
