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 and is home to the following facilities on Thunder match days.

Supporter Accommodation – For most home games, fans are housed in either the 380-seater clubhouse stand or along the 1,000 space pitchside terrace.
