Ground Information:

Formerly known as Penzance & Newlyn Pirates, the Cornish Pirates play their home games at their traditional home at Mennaye Field in Penzance.

There has been much talk of plans to build a permanent 15,000- seat stadium which will be fit to host Premiership rugby, but the club is still considering its options, particularly as the minimum entry requirements to the Premiership are in a state of flux.

The club developed a business plan with Cornwall Council to build a stadium which could host both the Pirates and Truro City Football Club, but   the Council refused any public funding

 

June 2015

The long-running saga over a new stadium for Cornish Pirates is set to drag on even further.

The clubs’ hopes were dashed when Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee meeting to consider a retail development which would largely fund the £10million was postponed at short notice.

The 6,000 capacity stadium – with the option to extend to the 10,000 necessary to satisfy Premiership rugby criteria for a place in the top flight – planned for Threemilestone near Truro, is crucial to any hopes Pirates have of playing Premiership rugby in the foreseeable future.

Saracens have just regained their European crown at the expense of holders Leinster.
