In 1867… A club was born,
A club that grew from humble beginnings in the Eton and Middlesex Tavern in North London, before the advent of the Rugby Football Union.
Over the years, Wasps have been a cornerstone of English rugby, nurturing numerous international players and supplying five players that helped England win the Rugby World Cup in 2003. The club has also been famous for bringing together talented individuals from different backgrounds and countries around the world. To date, over 20 countries have had Wasps players in their international squads.
Wasps are not afraid to do things differently, to pioneer new ideas and lead the way. We were the first rugby union club to utilise many tactics that are now in everyday use such as squad rotation, player analysis, the blitz defence and modern strength and conditioning training.
Wasps is a club with winning in our DNA, we have been crowned European Champions twice and English Champions six times, three of which were on consecutive years (2003, 2004, 2005). In 2004, Wasps achieved a remarkable double, being crowned European and English Champions in the same season. The Club has also won the Anglo-Welsh Cup and European Challenge Cup. Between 1999 and 2008, Wasps reached 10 finals and won each of them.
This club has such a rich history and although we have been nomadic in the past number of decades, one thing that has never changed is the unbreakable spirit that is embodied by the players, coaches and staff who have been with the club through thick and thin.
With the move to the Ricoh Arena in 2014, the club now has an even brighter future than we could have imagined. The facilities at our new home are the envy of many in the country and they are also being matched by the performances of the squad, led impressively by Joe Launchbury.
Off the field, the club has laid down roots and become a permanent part of the community. With the vision and security the club now enjoys, I have no doubt that the success of the past 150 years will be surpassed in the next 150. So, we hope you will join us on the journey and be a part of our exciting season ahead.
Remember, once a Wasp, always a Wasp. This truly is a club and a team to be proud of.
