This is the Army v Navy Match
The annual Army v Navy match is the largest amateur sporting event in the UK often attracting a crowd of over 80,000 people at Twickenham Stadium. The first match was in 1878. Since 1907 the match has only been interupted for World War and global pandemic. What was once a men's match is now a rivalry that includes the women, VIIs, Under 23s and Veterans. Both at home and when deployed whenever an Army unit plays a Navy unit the game is lifted to a new level. It is a special rivalry that has its strength anchored in respect for each other as soldiers, sailors, marines and rugby players. Since 1920 Twickenham has been the home of their showcase day of rugby; the annual Army v Navy Match. This is why we think it's special.
