The changing face of Headingley

Headingley stadium is set to undergo major redevelopment work with the announcement of a new stand at the eastern end of the rugby ground.


The new Carnegie Stand, will have 1,844 seats in its 4,550 capacity and will be developed in with Leeds Metropolitan University giving the University’s Carnegie campus a permanent base at Headingley.

The Carnegie Stand will incorporate 12 classrooms and greatly increase access for spectators with a disability.

The project will start in October 2005 and is due to be completed by the end of July 2006.  During the redevelopment work the capacity for the rugby ground will be reduced to 16,600. The total project will cost £7 million.

Leeds Rugby Chief Executive Gary Hetherington says, “We are immensely proud of the heritage of Headingley stadium as the current custodians in its 115 year history. The building of the Carnegie Stand is the biggest structural change to the stadium since the rebuilding of the Main Stand in 1932 and brings new modern facilities for all supporters to benefit from on a matchday.”
