Richmond Athletic Ground - Richmond Rugby Football Club
Home to rugby union's National League 2 South side Richmond FC and the RFU Championship side London Scottish, the Athletic Ground in Richmond has a stand capable of seating around 1,000 people. On big match days, temporary stands have been known to be erected to boost seat capacity. Back in its heyday, the ground hosted 10 test matches featuring England, between 1891 and 1909. In all five of those matches being played against fierce rivals Scotland, England failed to register a win - so its easy to understand why London Scottish chose the Athletic Ground to be their base in the capital.
