Stadium Information




The home of Newcastle Thunder since 2015, there has been a stadium on the site since 1990. when rugby union side Newcastle Falcons, under the name of Newcastle Gosforth first moved to what had previously been the site had been the Newcastle Chronicle and Journal Sports Ground.

In that time. Kingston Park has undergone a number of facelifts to the purpose-built rugby stadium that supporters see today.


The East Stand is the main centre for Newcastle Thunder, with the club’s offices and changing rooms housed in the building, alongside the Tap & Tackle and 1877 bars, club shop and ticket office.

With 380 seats, it provides a perfect facility to use for much of the Kingstone Press League 1 season, with pitchside standing also available for 1,000 spectators.


The all-seater state of the art West Stand houses some of the best facilities in club rugby and is used by Thunder for fixtures where bumper attendances are expected, like the Magic Friday fixtures against York City Knights.

With luxurious hospitality suites and executive boxes, bars on all three levels and a concourse that boasts one of the longest bars in Europe, the West Stand is a facility that Thunder can be proud of being able to open when needed.
