Sixways Stadium, Worcester
Sixways Stadium is unlike any other development in the UK. A truly inspirational multi-purpose venue which is used 24/7, 365 days of the year. Home to both Worcester Warriors and Sixways Events, the amazing 65-acre complex is now one of the country's most exciting, dynamic and versatile venues.
Situated within striking distance of Junction 6 of the M5 and only a 15 minute drive from Worcester city centre, the 12,024 capacity stadium is the home of Worcester Warriors, the professional rugby union side. Since the professional era in rugby, the stadium has undergone a number of facelifts, firstly with the new West Stand, with indoor training centre, followed by the impressive South Stand and, most recently, the state-of-the-art Slick Systems Stand which holds 6,000 people on match days.
Franklin's Gardens, Northampton
With a capacity of 13,500, 48 executive boxes, numerous bars and hospitality areas, the renowned Village area, 1,500 car parking places and three training pitches Franklin's Gardens is now the envy of European rugby. But the club has plans to make this even better, with a proposed development of the Sturtridge end that would complete the stadium bowl and take capacity up to 17,000, representing a 25% increase in the possible number of people who can come and watch the Saints play their unique brand of entertaining rugby.
Kingsholm, Gloucester Rugby
Kingsholm is the home stadium of Gloucester Rugby with a capacity of 16,000 people. It has recently been renovated by C & D construction and was once home to England’s national team before they settled at Twickenham. The first ever match to be played at Kingsholm was on the 10th of October 1891 between Gloucester and Burton, which led to a home victory for Gloucester. Since then Gloucester has been recognised as a formidable force in the English Premiership, winning the title and reaching the play-off finals
Molesey Road., Esher RFC
Molesey road, the home of Esher Rugby, covers 23 acres of land and features 5 rugby pitches with a ground capacity of 2,300. Close to the M25 and the A3 and with parking for 200 cars, the club also benefits from a good railway service to Waterloo from the adjacent Hersham Station, also serving Surbiton, Wimbledon and Clapham Junction.
On promotion from National Division 1 this season, Esher boosted their ground with an additional stand
to accommodate the larger crowds of the Championship. The clubhouse features a traditional bar and a function room with dining facilities for up to 200, as well as a hospitality box for corporate entertainment. In the last three years, Molesey Road has hosted a number of RFUW Women’s International fixtures.
With membership and crowd attendances rising, Esher have ambitious plans to develop the infrastructure at the club, to include stadia enhancements and an all-weather, covered facility. This will allow Esher Rugby to firstly become a more integral part of the local community and also a destination venue providing sports and leisure to a much wider audience.
