RFU considering change at Twickenham after complaints about fans

The Rugby Football Union is to monitor a plan by their Welsh counterparts for a no-alcohol zone at the Principality Stadium, with a view to taking similar steps at Twickenham in the future.

The Welsh Rugby Union responded to concerns about excessive drinking and anti-social behaviour on Cardiff match-days.


At Twickenham, there have been increasing complaints about fans moving to and from bars during England games and the Mail Online has reported that the RFU may introduce a no-booze section of their own.

‘It is an interesting idea and we wouldn’t rule it out,’ said a spokesman.

‘We will look at anything that improves customer experience if it can be delivered in a practical way.’

The WRU intend to implement their plan by next autumn.

    I agree Bill the constant stream of people going to and from the bar is ridiculous . A no alcohol zone would be a shame for those of us who don’t feel the need to act like a Twat!

    Went to the recent England v Samoa game with my wife and Father-in-Law. The game for my Father-in-Law was ruined by so called supporters in front of us, behind us and along the same row going to the bar whilst the match was being played. Two suggestions would be that supporters who turn up for the game late be let in at a suitable break in the game in a similar fashion to theatre’s and also that the bars stop serving drinks five minutes after each half starts and that they open up again five minutes before half time and the end of the match.
