Rugby Stadiums You Must Visit:


1. Twickenham, London – 82,000

national team matches, the English leg of the IRB Sevens World Series and club rugby finals. Twickers’ has been the home of English rugby since 1907, with the first international at the ground seeing England defeat Wales 11-6 in January 1910. Twickenham has been redeveloped many times over the years into the world-class stadium it is today.


2. Ellis Park, Johannesburg – 62,000

Ellis Park Stadium, or Coca-Cola Park, as it was recently renamed after sponsorship agreements, has been the stage for many unforgettable rugby matches in the South Africa, primarily when the Springboks were famously crowned as Rugby World Cup champions in 1995.

Kiwis love their sport with the most popular sports being rugby in the winter and cricket in the summer and Eden Park has been hosting both for over a hundred years.

A stadium steeped in history. Always enjoy going to watch a rugby game there. The atmosphere is electric.

    Good list. Kingsholm had to be on the list for the supporters alone !. Ground maybe needs re-developing ?, but The Shed is a one-off. It is what rugby passion is all about !.
