Capacity - 12,300

Home to the recently-promoted Aviva Premiership side Exeter Chiefs and their passionate, chanting fans, Sandy Park is fast becoming a bastion of English club rugby. Closer to Cardiff than it is London, Exeter is an historic roman city in Devon with a rich history. The earliest records show that Exeter Chiefs played a match as early as 1873. Built to replace the County Ground in 2006, the Chiefs' new home came complete with the planning permission to expand, rising from 8,000 originally to its current size of 10,744. A combination of Exeter's establishment as a top-flight club and Rugby World Cup 2015 will see the capacity double to 20,600 over the next two years. This will make Sandy Park one of the biggest club rugby grounds in England.
