St James’ Park
St. James’ Park is the home stadium of Newcastle United Football Club.
The stadium is the sixth largest football stadium in the UK and its white cantilever roof, the largest in Europe, is visible across the city. Alongside regular Premier League and Football League matches, St. James’ Park also proudly host a range of high-profile and international sporting tournaments. The stadium provided a key venue for football matches during the 2012 Olympics as well as hosting several nail-biting rugby games during the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Fans of Super League rugby will also be familiar with St James’ Park which has held the Dacia Magic Weekend for three consecutive years since 2016.
The first organised practice match on the site was recorded as taking place in 1880 – a full 12 years before the official formation of Newcastle United.
