Streaking, Bon Jovi & The Rugby World Cup: A Brief History of Twickenham


Image As you know, The Rugby World Cup 2015 is being hosted by England. If you didn’t know, I’m glad you found out from us here at MET Coaches. The final will be held at the famous Twickenham Stadium, England’s home of rugby. The stadium opened it’s gates in 1909 in early October and held it’s first Rugby World Cup 82 years later in 1991. The stadium also held the 1991 RWC final, the 1999 games and will hold the Rugby World Cup 2015 final. England have yet to win a RWC in London’s Twickenham Stadium. Could this year be the year to make history?



Image The Twickenham Stadium has hosted a number of huge events besides the showpiece of world Rugby. It has staged some of the world’s biggest names in music like Bon Jovi, The Rolling Stones, Rihanna, U2, and loads more. On the religious side of things, The stadium also holds an annual convention for Jehovah’s Witnesses, which has been in action for over 50 years.
Image Here’s a fun fact… Did you know that Twickenham Stadium saw the world’s first streaker at a major sporting event? You do now! England were in the middle of a clash with France in the 1974 Rugby Union Five Nations, before Australian Michael O’Brien flashed his ‘assets’ to thousands, as he sprinted away from the stadiums confused security and police. Have a look below at the famous picture of the young Australian being carried off the pitch with a policeman using his helmet to cover Michael’s ‘crown jewels’.
Image As far as fun facts go, I think they don’t get much better than that. I suppose we should have used that at the end… On a more solemn side of things, Twickenham Stadium is known for donating a lot to charity so people with low opportunities, can get involved in rugby and other sports around London. The money has been raised by anything from a small local community event, to a Beyonce super concert featuring massive names like Jennifer Lopez, Florence + The Machine, all presented by James Franco. The Sound Of Change Concert raised money for the Chime For Change Charity, co-founded by the extremely talented Beyonce, which raises money for promoting education, health and justice for girls and women around the world.
Image The Twickenham stadium holds around 82,000 seats and provides a tremendous atmosphere. If you were one of the lucky ones to secure a ticket for any of the games at the RWC 2015 at Twickenham, you’re in for a real treat. Be sure to sing loud and proud at every game. Turn up the volume and carry the boys home! And after an evening of celebrations, allow us to carry you home.
