Gateshead International Stadium

Gateshead International Stadium


Gateshead, United Kingdom (GB)
Gateshead International Stadium is a multi-use sports stadium in Gateshead, Tyne and Wear. The stadium is primarily set up for athletics, with a running track, but it is home to Gateshead Thunder rugby league club and Gateshead F.C. soccer club. It has also held a number of international rugby league matches.

The stadium has a capacity of 11,800, all seated. Most of the seating is not undercover, though the Tyne and Wear County Stand is covered, and holds 3,300 people. This is the only stand used for most rugby and football matches.

The stadium lends its name to a nearby station on the Tyne and Wear Metro. When the Metro system was first proposed this sation was originally planned to be called Old Fold, after a neighbouring residential area.
