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.

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both.

England’s failure. Blame it on…. (Tue, 27 Mar 2018)
After England’s failure at the Six Nations, finishing only above Italy, (at least no- one has pretended that it was anything but a failure) the knives have all too predictably been going in all directions. Quite a few have landed in Eddie Jones’ back, but many commentators have looked at the Irish and asked what … Continue reading England’s failure. Blame it on….

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
