The information was revealed after the RFU posted job advertisements, for the role of ‘Stadium Masterplan Programme Executive’, and ‘Stadium Masterplan Programme Manager’ to the England Rugby jobs website.

The Twickenham upgrade is referred to as the ‘Stadium Masterplan’, and seems set to improve facilities across the board at ‘HQ’. The job advertisement speaks for a very exciting upgrade to Twickenham within the coming years, that is said to “transform the Twickenham stadium performance but also provide an exceptional visitor and user experience.”

“The masterplan is to form a coordinated suite of refurbishment, intervention, operational, new build, transport, experience or building services projects that will collectively, after a phased, logical implementation, transform the Twickenham stadium performance but also provide an exceptional visitor and user experience.

“This amounts to circa £500m of capital works to the Twickenham stadium asset alone over the next 5-8 years. In addition to this work, another stream of activity covers the forming of a resilient and sustainable transport strategy involving rail and underground station modifications, highway changes, river and walking route improvements.”
