The Club currently competes in both premier domestic and European club rugby competitions. This season, Harlequins will return to the European Rugby Champions Cup for the first time since the 2014/15 season hosting Ulster Rugby, La Rochelle and Wasps in the Pool stage. Going into the 2017/18 season, the senior squad is currently made up of 19 internationals and features four British and Irish Lions.

Blessed with one of the most successful Academy systems in European rugby, in November 2016 Harlequins’ starting forward pack for a match against Bath Rugby was made up of entirely English-qualified Academy graduates.

In 2008, Harlequins hosted its first Big Game; an annual Premiership match held at Twickenham Stadium in the week between Christmas and New Year pulling in average attendances of 75,000. This season, Big Game is in its tenth year where Harlequins will host Northampton Saints at the home of English rugby.

Last season the Club celebrated its 150th season in existence by facing the Maori All Blacks at The Stoop in an Anniversary Challenge Match.

THE FUTURE

Both the short term and long-term future looks bright for the Club. Harlequins U18s won the 2017 Premiership Academy league with six of the successful squad making their way into the full time Academy set up.

This season, Harlequins’ newly formed Ladies team will play in the exciting inaugural Women’s Domestic competition with plenty of the squad competing in the 2017 Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland.

The Club also continues to strengthen its ties in America following on from pre-season tours to both Philadelphia and San Francisco, helping increase participation of the sport in the USA.

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE STOOP

For the first 40 years of its existence the Club struggled to find a permanent home. Between 1866 and 1906 the Club played at 15 different venues. The nomadic existence came to an end in 1906 when the Rugby Football Union (RFU) invited the Club to use the new national stadium at Twickenham. The Club’s first match at its new base was against Richmond and took place on 2nd October 1909.

In 1963 the Club initially leased an athletics ground with 14 acres of land on the other side of the A316 in Twickenham. This became the Club’s training pitch and gradually evolved into its permanent home.

Over the years there has been considerable investment in developing the facilities at The Stoop, starting in 1997 with the development of what is now known as the DHL Stand that runs along the length of the east touchline. In 2005 the IG Stand along the west touchline was constructed bringing new meeting and hospitality facilities to the ground. The South and North stands were added subsequently in 2009 and 2011 respectively bringing essential covered facilities for supporters and resulting in a current, total capacity of 14,800.

In the Summer of 2017, The Stoop hosted its first two music concerts and therefore establishing itself as a concert venue as well as a sports venue.
