Description of the ground: Huddersfield were the first Super League club to move into a new purpose built home, shared with the town’s football team, Huddersfield Town, in 1994. The ground has a nice symmetry to it, with the single tiered South Stand behind one of the posts, and the two tiered Panasonic Stand behind the other, and the two tiered Main Stand down one side, and the single tiered Antich Stand opposite. The ground is modern all over, with excellent views and facilities.

Transport (bus, rail, car etc): The town centre train station is a fair way, but can be walked in about 20 minutes. Driving is no problem as the ground is very well signposted even before leaving the M62.

Parking: There is a large pay and display car park just outside the stadium complex. It is especially ideal for evening kick offs, as it is free after 6pm. If you’re there earlier though, its a pretty reasonable £2.50 for 5 hours. The ground is only 5 minutes walk away and it is pretty good for getting out afterwards too.

Food & drink (inside and outside the ground): The ground is built on a retail park, so all the usual eateries can be found there, as well as the usual inside.

Pubs: There is a pub called the Rope Walk on the retail park. If you’re walking from the train station though, you will come along Leeds Road, which has quite a few pubs along there within about 10 minutes walk of the ground.
