Sandy Park is a rugby union ground that has been the home of the Exeter Chiefs since it opened in 2006. The Chiefs moved to the new stadium from the County Ground which they had outgrown after playing there for over 100 years, with renovations occurring in 2012 which has raised capacity to 13,593.
The stadium hosted three pool matches at the 2015 Rugby World Cup – Tonga defeating Namibia 35-21, Georgia edging out Namibia 17-16 and Italy beating Romania 32-22.
