The new Castleford Tigers Community Stadium will have a capacity for 10,000 spectators (approx. 3,200 seated and 6,800 standing) and has been designed to meet all the criteria contained within Articles of Association of the Rugby Football League (Governing Body) Ltd, issue7, dated February 2009, and Operational Rules and Super League Facility Standards for Licenses issued for the 2012-2014 seasons.
It will have the ability to be expanded to a capacity of 12,000 through future phasing by infilling the four corners if sustained club performance justifies further expansion.
The Stadium is an integral component of the overall Five Towns Park retail development using a similar architectural language to that of the retail element with the introduction of complementary cladding materials and a reduced scale colonnaded canopy design above the main access turnstiles.
