Ground Information

In 1906 Harlequins were invited by the Rugby Football Union to use the new national stadium in Twickenham as only a handful of internationals were being played there each season. In 1963 Quins acquired an athletics ground just across the road from Twickenham, which became the Harlequin training pitch. The ground was named Stoop Memorial Ground after Adrian Stoop, a longtime Harlequins player and president, and was changed to Twickenham Stoop Stadium in 2005.

IG Stand:

The main stand is the IG (West) Stand. This holds the changing rooms and club offices. It was built for the start of the 2005/06 season and has a capacity of about 4,000.

DHL Stand:

The DHL  (East) Stand, built in 1997, has a capacity of about 4,000, and houses the Mighty Quins Village, a children’s area This stand runs beyond the length of the pitch, so if you are seated in one of the end blocks you may be beyond the try line.

North Stand:

This is intended as a temporary structure, with about 2,000 seats, and is the only stand with supporting pillars. If further expansion is going to happen then this is the area most likely to be redeveloped.

South Stand:

This is the most recent stand to be re-developed, opening in the 2010/11 season. It holds about 4,000, and is the tallest stand in the stadium

July 2014

Quins have announced plans to increase capacity at the Stoop to 20,000 over the next decade, with capacity initially rising from 14,800 to 16,800, with a new North Stand.

Football and Rugby crowds (Tue, 06 Feb 2018)
  Why do you think a rugby crowd is so different from a football crowd? Even if it isn’t that different in demographics and profile, the spectator experience certainly is.   Basically, football fans are not trusted not to monster each other. So we’re all on CCTV in and around the ground, and the whole … Continue reading Football and Rugby crowds

Hats off to the Aussies…. (Tue, 23 Jan 2018)
  Yes, hats off to the Aussies….   Rugby, as evidenced by many a hidden vote in a transparent process, is fond of its decidedly old-school systems and hierarchy.   But if the appointment of Raelene Castle as the Australian Rugby Union’s new CEO was considered ground-braking, the ARU’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) was … Continue reading Hats off to the Aussies….

Does Test Rugby need stricter rules? (Tue, 14 Nov 2017)
Evidently Rhys Webb wants to have his Welsh cake and eat it. The Ospreys and Lions scrum-half signed for Toulon earlier this month, days before the Welsh Rugby Union announced a change to its policy governing players outside the country, entrapping the 28-year old. The new rules outline that players moving to England or France … Continue reading Does Test Rugby need stricter rules?
