Another small section of the bottom tier added today, this is where the first stairway will be up from underneath he Stand and the first stairwell up to the seating area. This is why the gap on the top tier has been left until this is put in.

Also metalwork around the side of the ground for the panelling.

Live feed for the main stand and the south Stand can be found on YouTube.

It’s coming on very quickly now.

I went up to Headingley yesterday to book seats for the two "home" games at Elland Rd & was only able to fill in a quasi-IF form. I could not select a specific area or seat.
When I queried this I was told that seats would be allocated at a later date.
IMV that is simply not good enough so I sent an email complaining about this to the club.
They had the courtesy to call me back today explaining that because it's not our stadium they don't have a seating plan to allow members to pick a specific seat.
I have a slight disability which means I prefer to have an aisle seat.
I have requested this on the form but don't know until I get to the ground if that is what I'll get.
In this day & age when I can book tickets at venues across the globe where I can choose a specific seat or at least check availability I find the club's response poor.
The club has had ample time to obtain full seating plans from Leeds Utd enabling them to allocate specific seats when asked.


I think it’s an absolute farce the way they’ve done this. For our group we will have to send 40+ numbers over to them to sit together. Not sure why they couldn’t just say ‘which stand would you like to be in?’ And have it unreserved seating.

Doesn't look like it - they've filled in that whole section. If the artists impression graphics are accurate I think the stairs up from underneath will be in the next section along.

That’s correct, got my dimensions wrong and thought cos they only filled half in that it may have been the first one.

Now all filled in at the bottom, just left abit at the top for the stairway to the seating area. More cladding metal work to the side of the ground too today. Top tier now almost filled in.

I don’t expect it to go any longer over the next two weeks. But reckon they’ll finish the whole of the bottom tier up to that point & the roof metalwork before the Christmas break.

The redevelopment plan has been expanded to now include the demolition of the floodlights once the new stands are complete, to be replaced by lights along the front of the stands.

I'll miss them :(

Me too. But I still miss the old style ones we got rid of in 1988. (or '87).
Leeds Rhinos? 8 for you, Leeds Rhinos! You go, Leeds Rhinos.

And none for Castleford Tigers. Bye!

Just been told the same, no surprise as it’ll only add to the value of the ground and make it more up to date.
