Newcastle Falcons have used the Kingston Park multi-purpose stadium as their home ground since 1990 when they shifted from their original ground. Over the years it had been used as the site for Newcastle Chronicle and Journal Sports ground. The stadium was built in stages to ensure a capacity of more than ten thousand. The west stand is built keeping in mind the modern technologies and architecture. There are plans of extending the north and west stands in due course of time in order to build a world class stadium for the rugby giants. However the latest news which has created a lot of buzz among the rugby circuit is the installation of an artificial turf for the home team by the company that was responsible for the first of this artificial kind of pitch in Saracens’ Allianz Park.
