Twickenham: The Home of England Rugby
Twickenham Stadium is the home of Rugby Union and the England national rugby team. It is the largest stadium in the world to be devoted purely to this sport, the second largest stadium in the UK, and the fifth largest in Europe. In this official publication, Phil McGowan takes us on an illustrated tour of the long and illustrious history of this magnificent stadium, featuring some of the legendary players that have trodden the hallowed ground of Twickers, the matches that have taken place, and the history the turf is steeped in. Lavishly illustrated with images and memorabilia from the National Football Museum's archive in full colour, this is a tribute not only to the history of the stadium, but to Rugby Union itself.
Phil McGowan is a sporting and social historian. He is sports history curator at the World Rugby Museum, located underneath the East Stand of Twickenham Stadium. The museum possesses the largest collection of rugby memorabilia in the world.
