Location of Twickenham Stadium
Details of Twickenham Stadium and the Ticket Luck value
There was once a cabbage patch. It looked like any other cabbage patch, yielding average sized cabbages. It had its fair share of worms, moth larvae, aphids and slugs that went on with their unassuming lives. Then one fine day, the denizens of the cabbage patch realized that something was amiss and two years later, their apprehensions materialized in the form of a sprawling rugby stadium. Now, rather than this being a fairy tale ala Jack and the Beanstalk, it is quite literally what transpired in the case of the Twickenham Stadium's creation. For more than a century, this piece of turf has played host to matches between teams from around the world as well as high-profile musical acts. The Twickenham Stadium tickets are your only passports to this legendary land of humanoid creatures feuding over an oblong shaped piece of inflated leather.
Home to the Rugby Football Union (RFU) that was created in 1871, the Twickenham Stadium was conceived in 1907 when RFU committee members William Williams and William Cail spearheaded the purchase of a 10.25 acre plot of land for around £5,500 that had been serving as a market garden at the time and is located in the town of Twickenham in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The RFU was encouraged by the sold out matches that were played out at the Crystal Palace grounds against New Zealand and South Africa and so desired to acquire a dedicated rugby field.
The former incarnation of the Twickenham Stadium still lives on through its nickname as the Cabbage Patch. However, it turns out that cabbages weren't the only things that were thriving where the Twickenham Stadium stands today but ancient settlements dating back to the Early Neolithic periods and all through the so-called Bronze and Iron ages and the subsequent Romans occupations.
Since its inception in 1907, the Twickenham Stadium has undergone a series of facelifts and remodelling projects. After having an initial capacity of only a couple of thousand, the first major augmentation was in 1921 with a jump to 12,000, through the addition of a North Terrace followed by a South Terrace that upped it to 20,000. After extensive reconstruction throughout the 1980s and 1990s that created space for upto 75,000 spectators, the current capacity of 82,000 was achieved in 2006 along with the construction of a 4-star Marriot hotel containing 156 rooms and 6 VIP suites that overlook the stadium field.
From the first Harlequins v. Richmond game to hosting the Middlesex Sevens, the Heineken Cup, the final of the Aviva Premiership as well as the LV Cup and of course numerous Rugby World Cup matches over the years, the Twickenham Stadium has staged the pantheon of musical acts. Rock legends The Rolling Stones, Genesis, Bon Jovi and U2 along with metal heads Iron Maiden, as well as The Police and Eagles have all descended upon the venue. So book your Twickenham Stadium tickets now to behold some bone crunching action interspersed with thumping rock anthems.
