Monday, 16th August 2021 @ 12:00

Members have 24 hours to secure their tickets for our pre-season friendly with Cardiff Blues

Following the latest government guidance regarding the return of supporters to sports stadiums, we are delighted to welcome you back to the Twickenham Stoop as we look to start the 2021/22 season.

Below you can find details of our up-coming pre season fixture ahead of the season officially kicking off:

Venue: The Twickenham Stoop
Match: Harlequins vs Cardiff Rugby
Time: 3pm, Saturday September 4

Key information for our Cardiff Rugby fixture


Harlequins look forward to re-opening The Stoop to supporters with the majority of facilities and services returning to ‘operating as usual’, but supporters are advised of several key changes for this fixture:

The North Stand will be shut for this fixture as on-going building work to upgrade supporters facilities is taking place. This is planned to be complete ahead of our first league fixture in September.

The DHL East Stand will initially be open for ticket purchases, followed by the Charles Stanley West Stand and then the South Stand, according to demand.

The majority of indoors and outdoor bars and dining areas will be open as usual. At this time it is not known if the Honours Bar will be available for Members to return to, or if government guidelines will require this to remain the Home team dressing room for a short period. We will communicate to attendees ahead of the match as soon as we receive confirmation.

The NHS vaccination centre will not be in operation on the matchday.

COVID precautions

There will no longer be a requirement to arrive or depart in a phased, timed order. Supporters are able to arrive and leave as they choose, although it is recommended to arrive early to avoid queues.

Some COVID precautions will remain in place with one way routes and additional hand sanitiser stations around the stadium for example, but social distancing will not be required. The wearing of face masks will be voluntary.

It is anticipated that the players will not be able to interact with supporters due to government restrictions, meaning unfortunately no selfies and autograph signings yet.

There is no requirement for proof of vaccination or recent negative COVID test result on entry.


There will be no match day programmes for this match but we will revert to programmes for sale on matchdays across the 21/22 season thereafter.

The Shop at The Stoop will be open.

Fan Radios will be available to buy and redeem from the Quinformation point.

Members can also collect their Quins Rewards items from this location and ask the Membership team any outstanding questions. Note that Membership packs, inclusive of Member pin badges, will be delivered to Members ahead of the September 25, our first Home Men’s match. These will not be available to collect on September 4.

Pre-match entertainment will be limited vs usual matchdays as this is a pre-season friendly.


Harlequins Members and Debenture Members will be given priority to request 1 x FREE ticket per Member with the ability to purchase guest tickets next week when tickets are made available at 2pm on Monday August 16. Tickets will be priced from £8.00 for Juniors & £18.00 for Adults – see below complete pricing.

Harlequins Members and Debenture Members can attend the match for free as part of their Season Ticket Membership.

If any tickets remain, these will be placed on General Sale at 2pm on Tuesday August 17 and launched via our club website to the public.

All tickets will be print at home tickets. Members will not be able to automatically sit in their usual seat for this match.

Membership access cards will not be required to enter the stadium.

Tickets are unable to be moved once purchased and are non-refundable (see our terms and conditions including COVID policy).

For accessible tickets please contact the ticket office on 0208 410 6000.

The Ticket Office will be open on the day and Matchday Tickets will be available to buy.

Cadan Murley says people forget how young the squad is at Quins and that there is so much more to come from this group of players.

Baxter learning from the best

18th January 2022

Fin Baxter says there's no other better learning environment for a young prop with Adam Jones and Joe Marler to look up to.

Will Evans says it's the best environment he's been a part of in rugby which made it an easy decision to sign a new deal.
