Exeter Chiefs Information
Sandy Park is the home of Premiership Rugby side Exeter Chiefs, which sits just on the outskirts of Exeter, Devon. This has been their home since 2006 after making the move to the state-of-the-art stadium. Sandy Park has a capacity of more than 13,500.
The Chiefs had previously played their home fixtures at the County Ground. The County Ground was where the New Zealand Rugby Team played their first-ever match in England, beating Devon 55-4 in a 1905 Tour match. The current kit of the Exeter Chiefs is all-black with a white second kit.
It took a while for the Exeter Chiefs to climb to the top of the English game. They never featured higher than Division 3 in the Courage League. When the format of the English game changed to the Premiership in the 1997/8 season, Exeter was placed in the second tier, where they stayed until 2010.
Exeter finished second in the 2009/10 RFU Championship but earned a promotion as Champions after beating Bristol in a two-legged final. Once in the top flight, they consolidated before the first of the Exeter Chiefs title wins in the Premiership came, which was in 2017 against the Wasps.
The second of the Exeter Chiefs titles in the Premiership was achieved in 2020, which was also the season that they dominated Europe to win the Champions Cup for the first time, completing a historic season-double.
Exeter’s rise to the top has seen them boast an array of top internationals, such as Stuart Hogg, Henry Slade, Jack Nowell and Thomas Francis.
