The Stadium       Rodney Parade is the home ground of rugby union clubs Newport RFX and the Newport Gwent Dragons, as well as Newport County Football Club

                         Rodney Parade has two covered stands: the larger Hazell (west) Stand, and the smaller Bisley (east) Stand. The upper tier of the west stand is seated and the lower tier is a standing terrace. The east stand is all-seated with a 2,526 capacity, including  144 seats in 13 hospitality boxes.

The North Terrace is uncovered standing and adjoins some  uncovered standing terrace on the west touchline alongside the west stand. The South Terrace houses players' changing rooms and a media centre, but the south end is currently unavailable to spectators.

                       Long term plans include construction of covered stands to replace the North and   South terraces, and to provide cover on the currently uncovered stretch of the west  touchline terrace.
