  • Visitor Information

Rugby union side London Irish play their home games outside the capital at Reading FC's Madjeski Stadium in Berkshire. The ground, which was opened in 1998, has a capacity of 24,161. London Irish moved to the Madjeski in 2000 after leaving their old home, The Avenue, in Sunbury-on-Thames. A deal has been struck with Reading FC that will see the rugby side continue to play their home games at the Madjeski until 2026. The largest crowd for a London Irish match at the Madjeski Stadium was for a game against London Wasps in March 2008, with the crowd of 23,790 also becoming (at the time) the highest attendance for a regular season Guinness Premiership match. Incidentally, the Madejski Stadium recently topped a poll of rugby fans (in Rugby World magazine) as the "best environment in which to watch rugby". The stadium is located on the site of a former household waste dump and the full complex includes The Royal Berkshire Conference Centre, the Millennium Madejski Hotel, and a £1m Indoor Training Centre.
