Been to Twickenham loads of times and getting home is a breeze,the simple reason is that they don't kick you out the stadium straight away,bars stay open with bands and karaoke for 3 hours. No mad rush to the station.Give me Twickenham over Wembley any day.

Does twickenham have a similar section to club Wembley? A group of us have been going to the club section the last few years but I'm pushing for the Rams game this year but they all like the club section.

Anybody know if they have anything?

From what I remember it is more corporate boxes rather than the plush club seating and VIP treatment which is also available at Wembley.

If you look on Ticketmaster they have the placeholder screens for ticket sales already up and with single game tickets it looks like for Wembley again next year they will sell Club tickets first and then normal tickets later. They are not differentiating at Twickenham everything goes on sale at same time.

There isn't really an equivalent to Club Wembley at Twickenham. There are lots of suites and boxes, so we will have to see how affordable they are for groups, but Club Wembley is one area where Wembley scores over Twickenham.

On the other hand, Twickenham is steeper and closer to the pitch, so many spectators will have a better viewing experience at Twickenham. Especially those in the top deck. And the ground accommodates post-match socialising and drinking, and is a much friendlier environment than Wembley for those that wish to stay for a while.

It's been years since I last went to Twickenham and back then technology was not omnipresent at sports venues. Does Twickenham have the big screens like Wembley for replays etc? I'm assuming it would have but thought I'd ask anyway.

Cheers. The rest of the guys like the fact that we can get served quick and have a chill out before the game in the Club section. Are the queues for food and drink likely to be longer if everybody is milling about together? Are there any big seating sections inside the ground to chill out at?

Cheers

Yes, Twickenham has jumbotrons at each end.

Sorry, but Twickenham doesn't really offer a Club section experience. The bars will be busy, but if it's like the rugby there will be a pre-match village atmosphere. Pros and cons, and different.

will be very interested to see how Twickenham does the NFL as have been there many times to see various rugby games, the one thing regular Wembley visitors will find different is the lack of space around Twickenham, im assuming if there is a tail gate at Twickenham it will be in the West car park, never been to watch NFL outside Wembley so am looking forward to seeing a game at another venue.
