Exeter is proud to be able to say that it has brought Premiership Rugby to Devon
Founded in 1871 and formerly known as the Exeter Rugby Club, The Exeter Chiefs have been competing in rugby union since 1873. They currently play in the
Gallagher Premiership, the top tier of English rugby containing the best twelve clubs in England.
After moving from the County Ground Stadium, which also held speedway and greyhound racing, Exeter Chiefs now play their home games at Sandy Park. It was at the County Ground in 1905 during the New Zealand rugby team's first-ever British tour that the phrase 'All Blacks' was first used in media reports of the shock win over a Devon County side
Exeter Chiefs have established themselves as one of the best sides in English and European rugby. After bringing top level rugby to the county in 2010, the Chiefs have become a main contender within the English league. They were crowned English Champions in the 2016–17 season, topped the table in 2017–18 and 2018–19, and then became double Premiership and European Champions in October 2020!
