In February 2007 a friend took me to a Rugby game of the 6 nations championships. England was facing Italy at Twickenham Stadium which is also called "The home of England Rugby".
England won the game in the sold out stadium with 20:7.
Twickenham Stadium was inaugurated in 1909 by the Rugby Football Union. At that time it had a capacity of 20.000 people both seating and standing. After various extensive rebuildings the capacity has now increased to 82.000. The stadium is also home to the Museum of Rugby.

Directions:
Twickenham Stadium is situated in the Twickenham district of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The nearest tube station is Richmond (District line) and the nearest railway station is Twickenham, which is served from London Waterloo.
