Replacing the North Stand
Home of Yorkshire County Cricket Club, Yorkshire Carnegie rugby union, and Leeds Rhinos rugby league team, the stadium has seen plenty of famous moment over the years – not least Ben Stokes’ heroic innings for England to win the 3rd Ashes test versus Australia in 2019.
The final piece of a project that commenced in the summer of 2017 was completed with the inauguration of a new joint North/South Stand overlooking both the rugby pitch and cricket grounds.
The existing structure – more than 90- years old – was demolished, before the construction of its impressive replacement. The aim – to convert the ground into a sporting facility fit for the 21st century.
The new stands and hospitality areas create a unique and world-class sporting and entertainment venue for the region, with 4,200 seats for cricket and 3,800 facing the rugby pitch. The new South Stand for the rugby ground has a capacity of 7,700, with 2,200 seated.
