Leeds Rhinos - Stadium


Leeds play at Headingley, the largest stadium in the Super League not to be shared with a football club.The ground now has a capacity of 22,250 including some seating and some standing areas.

The new Carnegie (East) stand (pictured) was opened in 2006.

The club are currently looking at refurbishing the (all-standing) South Stand, capacity of which has been reduced temporarily while structural repairs are carried out.

Consideration is also being given to rebuilding the (all-seated) North Stand, however being as it is double sided they require the support of Yorkshire Cricket first as any redevelopment would have to take place on both sides. The club's plans to redevelop the North Stand look set to be delayed since Yorkshire Cricket have no intention on redeveloping this until their replacement of the 'Winter shed' is complete. This has led to the club exploring the option of redeveloping the Western Terraces instead, however this would require the demolition of six houses and the re-routing of a public right of way.

    It’s no accident that of all the monuments left of the Greco- Roman culture the biggest is the ballpark, the Colosseum, the Yankee Stadium of ancient times.

    In their eyes I have seen
    the pin men of madness in marathon trim
    race round the track of the stadium pupil.
    Patricia K. Page (b. 1916)

    The final upshot of thinking is the exercise of volition, and of this thought no longer forms a part; but belief is only a stadium of mental action, an effect upon our nature due to thought, which will influence future thinking.
    Charles Sanders Peirce (1839–1914)
