The Twickenham Stoop

The Twickenham Stoop has been the home of Harlequin FC since 1963.

Located in south-west London, the stadium is situated just across the road from the Home of English rugby, Twickenham Stadium.

The Stoop is named after the influential Harlequin fly-half and RFU Secretary Adrian Stoop. The all-seater stadium consists of four stands and has a capacity of 14,800, making it the third largest dedicated rugby ground in the Aviva Premiership.

The first match played at The Stoop was on November 23rd between Harlequins and Cambridge University. Since that match, Harlequins have played over 600 matches in the stadium.

In the past, the stadium has also been home to Super League side London Broncos, who played here between 2007 and 2013. It was also the host venue for the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup final, the Amlin Challenge Cup final in 2009 and 2012, and the Premiership Rugby 7s final in 2011 and 2014.

Today, The Stoop is more than just a rugby venue, with high-class conferencing, dining, meeting and events facilities.

The stadium is easily accessible by all forms of travel and we pride ourselves on our fun atmosphere and family friendly environment.
