Twickenham Stoop Autumn Internationals Hospitality Review 2016

After an amazing end to 2016 which saw England equal their longest ever winning streak of 14-games with the 37-21 victory over Australia at Twickenham on Saturday, we look back at our VIP hospitality packages at the Twickenham Stoop during this historic month for England.

Eventmasters moved to the Twickenham Stoop, the home of Harlequins, at the start of the 2016 Old Mutual Wealth Autumn Internationals and we believe the hospitality on offer has been a great success.

The Stoop is one of the most iconic venues in English Rugby and provides a perfect environment for guests to entertain clients – with the history of the game ingrained into the stadium.

For the final game of the Old Mutual Wealth Autumn Internationals against Australia, there was a real sense of expectation around the Stoop as England looked to end 2016 in perfect style.

We were delighted that our sister company Soar Online sponsored this huge game which turned out to be one of the most important games in the history of English Rugby.

Ahead of the game Stimpson was again joined by two of the biggest names in English Rugby. George Chuter (Leicester Tigers & England) and Paul Grayson (England & British Lions) offered their expert insight as to how England would go about beating the Wallabies.
