The Twickenham Stadium, which is popularly known as just Twickenham or Twickers is a Rugby Union stadium, which is located in the Twickenham area of London near the Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The Twickenham is considered to be one of the world’s biggest stadiums which facilitate the game of Rugby only. It is though the second largest stadium in the UK after Wembley Stadium and 5th largest in Europe. Twickenham is the home of the Rugby Football Union and England’s Rugby Union Team. It also hosts the Middlesex Sevens Rugby club of England. Apart from the international tests, the stadium also hosts the finals of the Aviva Premiership, the LV Cup and the Heineken Cup matches. In the 2009/10 rugby season the stadium celebrated its centenary. On 6th February, the English Rugby Team wore a special commemorative shirt in their match against Wales to mark the 100 years of the Twickenham Stadium.

Other Then Rugby Activities at the Twickenham

Apart from Rugby Union matches, Twickenham has hosted many other events like concerts as well. It has hosted concerts of Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi, U2, REM, Lady Gaga, Eagles, The Police, The Rolling Stones, Genesis, Iron Maiden and Rihanna.

How the Twickenham Stadium Built?

When the test match between New Zealand and South Africa at the Crystal Palace was sold out in the early 1900s the Rugby Football Union realized the advantages of having its own Rugby Union Stadium and the committee members William Williams and William Cail went on to purchase the land area of 10 ¼ acre in the market garden in the Twickenham area of London in 1907. At that time the value of this purchase was GBP 5, 500 only. It took one more to build the entire stadium and it hosted the first game between Harequins and Richmond on 2nd October, 1909. The first international on Twickenham was, however, played on 15th January 2010 between England and Wales with jammed packed capacity of 20, 000 fans.
