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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
