BOOK TICKETS

The 2nd January 2024 was the 160th anniversary of the world’s first inter-club rugby fixture when Richmond FC took on Blackheath FC on Richmond Green and saw out a nil-all thriller!

Since then, the clubs have met many times and the tie is much-enjoyed by players and fans of both sides. You can re-live the 150th anniversary meeting of the two clubs from an old BT Sport Rugby Tonight special featuring Gareth Edwards and favourites from both clubs here. It was another draw!

The next encounter is on Friday 8th March 2024 at Richmond, held under lights at The Richmond Athletic Ground. Book your tickets, and pre-match curry, here. Here’s hoping for a Richmond WIN!

In case you haven’t tired of enough Richmond/Blackheath firsts…

  • In 1871, Richmond and Blackheath jointly invited other clubs, “those who play the rugby-type game”, to a meeting at which the RFU was founded
  • The first RFU President was Richmond-man Algenon Rutter
  • Richmond hosted the first-ever floodlit rugby match in 1878
