Castleford Tigers

Castleford Tigers are a professional rugby league club based in Castleford in West Yorkshire, England. They participate in the professional European competition Super League. They are sometimes known as 'Cas', 'Cas Tigers', 'Classy Cas' or the 'Black & Amber'. In the early days many of their supporters worked as glassblowers which is another of the club's nicknames.

The Tigers play their home games at 'The Wish Communications Stadium' named after their main sponsor. The ground was previously named 'The Jungle' after sponsorship at that time, and before that its original and historic name was after the road where it is situated, Wheldon Road. Despite its decrepit style the ground is still believed to offer one of the best and most volatile atmospheres in the game. The club enjoy intense local rivalries with Featherstone Rovers and Wakefield Trinity.
