Does anyone know the current stadium criteria for Super League, the Championship and League 1.

 

I’m aware they have been flexible over the years, do they still exist formally?

 

Be an interesting to thing for our clubs who are tenants as they may be looking for cheaper accommodation in the near future.

Well they let Whitehaven into the Championship so anything equal to their cabbage patch with some tin sheeting at one end seems to be acceptable..?

Any criteria must be an incredibly low standard if Wakefield’s ground meets it.

Only thing missing at Leigh is another 3 or 4 thousand fans and it's a great venue and a good atmosphere

Agreed, big Football Stadiums aren't great for Club RL. Wigan RL don't seem to have much identity at the DW, it seems more about Wigan Athletic FC.

I think rail seats at the home end at least is a must- They can be seats for Soccer and converted to safe standing for RL.

It would then be a true multi use stadium.

Same for Hull FC as well.

A good old fashioned Rugby ground, the stand behind one end was a double decker, I'd never seen anything like it ( it was a long time ago). Good atmosphere fear with four decent stands.

Give over !!!!  We used to be stood on the terraces in a vest; have our trousers rolled up to our knees and have a knotted hanky on our heads ....  although, yes, I'll admit, we sometimes had to roll down the trousers when it got below freezing.

Loved Watersheddings. Only went there twice and can't remember too much detail but who could forget what happened on our last visit.

By looking at the stands at the far end of the top two photos in my earlier post you will see that there was also a 6 feet slope from one touchline to the other (left to right in the first photo ....  right to left in the second).

I am sure that Jamie Sandy the Indigenous Aussie that  Cas signed in 1985 made his debut at Watersheddings.  Due to him being about 5 foot 4 inches in height he looked like a smurf as it was that cold he was turning a shade of blue and suffering from onset hypothermia as he trudged off after being subbed.

as long as they put a few porta-cabins at one end and call them executive boxes it will be OK - ah no it wont since ground isn't in Yorkshire.

Not every club is fortunate enough to have a council, football club or passing multi-millionaire build a stadium for them.
