Our Impressions of Headingley Stadium
One of the most famous stadiums in world sport, Headingley, was opened in 1890 and has staged more than 40 international Rugby League matches, as well as countless finals. This is ground has a covered seating area along one side, with the covered terracing on the other. Both ends of the ground are sill uncovered. The view of the pitch is good from both sides, and the atmosphere on the standing terrace is good (...like the old football stadium days!)
Stadium Capacity: 23,000 (5,300 seated)
