Ground Information

Leeds st. Johns, who were later to become Leeds Rugby League Football Club, then Leeds Rhinos moved to Headingley in 1889 and built Headingley stadium.Undersoil heating was installed in 1963 and floodlights in 1966. New changing rooms   were added in 1991. 2006 saw the construction of the Carnegie Stand. Built to   replace the old Eastern Terrace. It was opened on September 1, 2006 for a Super League   match between Leeds Rhinos and Warrington Wolves.

That same year a new sponsorship deal with Leeds Metropolitan University led to Headingley Stadium being renamed Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

Headingly Stadium is located in the suburb of the same name a few miles northwest of Leeds city centre. The stadium is shared with the rugby league team, Leeds Rhinos, and Yorkshire County Cricket Club.

The large North Stand is adjoined to the cricket club and features two tiers of seating, the front of which isn’t entirely sheltered from the elements. The South Stand is a large covered stand running the length of the pitch.

To the eastern end of the ground sits the Carnegie Stand, with a large section of seating over a smaller standing terrace. The Western Terrace at the other end offers uncovered standing for those who don’t mind the elements.

North Stand

Capacity- 4,810 (seated)
The North Stand backs onto the cricket ground and is where the players changing rooms are. A bar area is also shared with the cricket ground and is completely covered.

Carnegie Stand

Capacity- 4,550 (1,844 seated)
The Carnegie Stand was completed in 2006 and replaced the Eastern Terrace. The stand has two tiers; the bottom contained terracing whilst the top contains seating, hospitality boxes, bars and a restrauant.

South Stand

Capacity- 6,000 (standing)

The South Stand is well known in rugby league for being the Kop of the ground. It contains only terrecing and holds the camera and media gantry. It also contains its own bar and bookmakers.

Western Terrace

Capacity-
The Western Terrece is the only part of the stadium not covered and houses the away fans. It also contains the scoreboard and Sky Sports video board.

Redevelopment

In 2015 it was announced that the North and South stands were to be rebuilt as part of the redevelopment of the stadium. The new North stand will include new changing rooms and hospitality for both the cricket and rugby ground, with the cricket side having two tiers. The South Stand will also be rebuilt as it was condemned in 2011 with plans since then to rebuild the stand. The new South stand will have the same standing capacity and will also house seating due to the North stand being slightly reduced and will have the same design as the Carnegie Stand.

The only side of the ground that has not been redeveloped or are there any plans to do so is the Western Terrace due to there being a public right of way and housing behind it. The biggest change to the Western Terrace is the permanent video board in the South West corner which replaced the temporary one in the North West corner.

Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter (Tue, 06 Nov 2018)
Theresa May would have felt right at home at Twickenham. Even a workable Brexit deal sometimes feels more achievable than locating the solution to rugby union’s unfeasibly tight fixture calendar. For a quarter of a century, if not longer, the sport has been trying to squeeze a globally-accepted quart into a disputed pint pot and … Continue reading Rugby’s Summer becomes the new Winter

The Autumn Window is not entirely open (Tue, 23 Oct 2018)
Rugby’s autumn internationals will be ready to rumble in a couple of weeks. England have a huge game against South Africa at Twickenham, Wales meet Scotland in Cardiff and Ireland face Italy in Chicago. These are big occasions with significant revenues. It is strange, then, that no one in charge of selling tickets, hospitality packages … Continue reading The Autumn Window is not entirely open

Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football? (Tue, 09 Oct 2018)
The new rugby season is a month old, but this is my first blog of the season, so let’s ride my hobby-horse of how rugby is coming to resemble football. It is because the cry, so often last season, was that rugby was becoming football. Coaches being sacked, the developing transfer market, players talking back … Continue reading Is it so bad if Rugby turns into Football?

Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal (Tue, 29 May 2018)
Longevity has come up short. The announcement that Arsène Wenger would leave Arsenal meant this season was the last for the longest-serving club heads in football and rugby’s premierships. Similar to Wenger at Arsenal, Jim Mallinder at Northampton had gone from managing the champions to missing out on a place in the top four for … Continue reading Mallinder’s Northampton downfall has parallels with Wenger at Arsenal

Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better? (Tue, 01 May 2018)
Is rugby popular, or not very popular at all? The answer is, perhaps weirdly, both. When it comes to international rugby, cup finals, or some annual “special” games, it attracts big numbers. 55,000 fans went to Murrayfield to see Saracens beat Clermont in 2017, 74,000 watched Wales beat Scotland, 82,000 watched England beat Wales and … Continue reading Does Club Rugby need to be Marketed better?
