Kingston Park is a multi-use stadium in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. It is currently used mostly for rugby union matches and is the home stadium of Newcastle Falcons. This rugby stadium is also used for the Newcastle United reserves to play their home matches, and from the 2007-08 season, will be home to Newcastle Blue Star, a semi-professional football team.
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 many facilities for the fans underneath the stand. The nearest Tyne and Wear Metro station is the Bank Foot station. The stadium is currently owned by the Northern Rock bank, who purchased it in 2007 for 15 million.
