Built for the Rugby Football Union to host England matches, Twickenham Stadium first opened its doors in October 1909. Harlequins were invited to use the stadium as their home ground and the opening match was between Harlequins and Richmond with Harlequins winning 14-10.  In those days the stadium could hold 30,000 people; today the capacity is 82,000 following the latest redevelopment, which began in 2005 with a new South Stand

Various other improvements have been carried out since, including a full refurbishment to a number of hospitality boxes, bars and public areas. Shadbolt have been proud to work on this iconic building, supplying bespoke Polyrey laminated FD30 and FD60 fire and acoustic performance glazed doorsets and American Walnut veneered fire doorsets.
