Welcome to the award-winning Sandy Park, home of Exeter Rugby Club, and home to the 2019/20 Gallagher Premiership and Heineken Champions Cup winners.
The anticipation of a visit to Sandy Park on match-day is always something special and everyone who comes regularly will have their routines and traditions. Here at Exeter Rugby Club, however, we are committed to providing every supporter that attends a game with the ultimate match-day experience, which includes offering a safe, friendly and enjoyable environment in which they can take in the match.
From the minute you walk through the gates, our aim is to ensure that nothing is left to chance and that we make all of our fans proud, wherever they are in the world, and however they choose to follow us.
That pride is driven by what we do both on and off the field. Whether it be winning trophies, our style of play, our focus on developing young, local talent, or what we do in the wider community, this is what makes the Chiefs who we are.
All of our staff understand that to achieve our goals, we must all be one and come together in the wider ‘Chiefs Family’ - always moving forward and doing things the Exeter way.
For us the key ingredient has to be that final element. It’s about thinking about others, getting the detail right and always going above and beyond expectations.
History - Initially formed as early as 1871, the first recorded match of Exeter Rugby Club was against the training college (latterly St Luke’s) on October 26, 1873 – playing in a field belonging to Mr Morrison and then in the Militia Field behind the barracks.
Subsequently, the club went to the Cricket Field at St Thomas (the former County Ground) then Matford only to return to the County Ground, where they would stay until the culmination of the 2005/06 season.
Throughout its many years of existence, Exeter Rugby Club has not only helped forge the careers of many fine individuals players, some of whom have gone on to achieve international honours, but its long-lasting traditions of sportsmanship, honour and team work have continued to move throughout the many years.
To list the efforts of players throughout the decades would surely be an endless task, but the way the Devon club has moved with the times – now featuring amongst English and European Rugby’s elite teams – is something to be truly cherished.
The progression made, particularly over the past 20 years is certainly notable, and having moved away from their former base at the County Ground, Exeter Rugby Club are now regularly playing host to crowds of almost 11,000 spectators.
Much of the transformation of Exeter Rugby Club has happened since the English rugby scene turned professional in the late 1990s. At this time a limited company structure was created to run all of the club’s affairs through a board of seven directors, chaired by local businessman Tony Rowe.
It was an inspired move as the direction of the new board not only saw Exeter Rugby Club rise on the field, but off it as well there was also much to promote as individuals, businesses and key sponsors came together to help provide financial backing to the playing squad.
Even now, however, it remains a members’ club with the company shares held by four trustees – John Lockyer, Bob Staddon, Paul Derbyshire and Ian Pugsley – who act on the sole wishes of the 700-strong membership.
Map & Directions
Off-site, match-day parking, along with a FREE shuttle bus service is available at Exeter Business Park, Grenadier Road, Exeter (EX1 3UT).
Guarantee your space by booking online before the game for £7 per vehicle, or limited spaces may be available on match-day (£10 per vehicle).
There are limited spaces for motorcyclists at Sandy Park on a match-day, however this is on a first come, first served basis.
There is no on-site car parking for supporters at Sandy Park on match-days, so we have worked very hard to produce a transport strategy which enables supporters, both home and away, to gain easy access to the stadium.
All car parks will be signposted clearly from Junctions 29 & 30 on the M5.
