The Fan Village is by the West Stand, in the ticketed area, between entry gates 1 and 2 on the Whitton Road side.

The BA Try Challenge is in marquee 4 next to the Bollinger Bar.

At a guess because they are sponsoring the England Rugby team.

There are many in the English regions show would disagree with you.
Worcester is online now

Very exited about this!
It should be a great match.

What are the opening times of the BA Lounge please? Before and after the game?

Shame the link to https://www.shopping.ba.com/twickenham doesn't work, but I'm not surprised.

'Sorry. The page you're looking for has either moved or no longer exists.'

One day, and probably only for one day, everything on the BA website will work. Sadly I doubt it will be in my lifetime.

Six Nations Games Only?

Hi Louise,

Thanks for the information. Is this just for the Six Nations home games or for other England events at Twickenham too (specifically for me the HSBC World 7's)?

This is great! Will be there for England - France on Sunday so sure to avail of it: is it confirmed that guesting can occur into the lounge?

In a group of 6 with only 3 BA GCH among us...

Seems like there could well be scope for an FT meetup!
