Kingston Park Stadium, Newcastle upon Tyne

Kingston Park is a multi-purpose stadium in Kingston Park, Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is used mostly for rugby union and rugby league matches and is the home stadium of Aviva Premiership side Newcastle Falcons and Kingston Press League 1 Rugby League side Newcastle Thunder. The stadium is also used for the Newcastle United Reserves to play their home matches. From 2007 to 2009 it was home to semi-professional football team Newcastle Blue Star.
In 1990 Newcastle Gosforth, as the Falcons were then known, moved into their new ground Kingston Park, which they had purchased for £55,000. Prior to Newcastle Gosforth moving in, the site had been the Newcastle Chronicle and Journal Sports Ground.
The stadium has a capacity of 10,200 people. The stadium was built in stages, with the West Stand being the newest and most modern. There are plans to expand the exposed North Stand to give more protection from the elements and to provide more facilities for the fans. The South Stand (John Smith's stand) is all standing but it has good protection from the elements and facilities for the fans underneath the stand.
