Yes correct, i would also add its been operating at reduced capacity for a while now due to unsafe terracing. New improvements give it 3600 capacity

Plus for the anoraks 2600 new stand

                                   2500 for west away side( i think)

                                    500 boxes 

That's a lot of boxes.

I think what Wakey are finally doing is great. Just like Hull KR have done, we don't need everyone to move into one of those new, Lego identikit stadiums, we just want every club to bit-by-bit invest in meaningful improvements. One part of the ground at the time. Gives consumers choice too eh - if you want the open terrace experience, why not

Totally agree , I think it adds character to be able to identify a stadium on TV . Many of the new ones are fairly interchangeable .

People don’t go to Rugby League for the ‘enormodome’ premium sporting experience. They come for the game, and it’s connection to the community. I like grounds that tell an evolving story.
 

Leeds new facilities are great like that too - keeping the South Stand terrace, having the unique double-sided stand, making a feature of the Directors box in the North East corner. Love boutique stadia like that, even when they’re larger than Wakey’s as Headingley is.
 

In the US they even seem to manage to do some great asymmetrical grounds at proper scale too, like Chicago Cubs ground, Boston’s Fenway Park, the daft Pirate ship at Tampa Bay with its working cannons 😂

Apparently this site says I "won the day" here on 19th Jan, 9th Jan also 13th December, whatever any of that means. Anyway, 3 times in a few weeks? The forum must be going to the dogs - you people need to seriously up your game. Where's Dutoni when you need him?

I think if Cas had one decent plastic seats cantilever affair it would make it Bob on as RL grounds go .

If I recall correctly, Lansdowne Road had a huge terrace behind the sticks at one end until the very end. That made it an iconic view. You can have traditional and modern, you just need to look after it.

Croke Park had its Hill 16 terrace replaced with new terracing as part of the stadium rebuild & accommodates 10k supporters.

Can you point me in the direction of any previous pre-season spiel thats anything other that positive?? From any club?? I reckon you’ll struggle!

But i can promise you many fans are worried about the strength of the squad even with the reserve grade Kiwi that is linked. Right now we are relegation favourites for a reason.

…and a two-tiered terrace (my personal favourite ground eccentricity, Southampton had one n’all), plus trains running under the main stand. That’s the kind of stuff I’m here for!

It’ll need a bit more than that - the away end is pretty awful as well. But there’s plenty of space for two new stands.

Cas away end is the best in the comp.  Headingley a close 2nd.  Don't change either.

This world was never meant for one as beautiful as me.

More photos this morning online, looks great. Wakey fans might not want to hear this but next season seems irrelevent in the league and a free hit. Worst case scenario season after you will have a top stadium in your own name and one of the favourites to come back up and have the first winning season for Wakey since 2017 (so would be 7 years).

Brought me to tears that.

I just love to see and hear stories about our game improving, growing and prospering.
