What Castleford Tigers’ "proposed stadium development" will feature after Super League Club announces milestone

Post by josie andrews »

REDEVELOPMENT is seemingly the name of the game for Super League clubs at present in their quest to improve their facilities.

Leeds Rhinos and Hull KR have been at the forefront of such modernisation in recent years with Headingley and Craven Park looking every bit the Super League standard for redevelopment.

Wakefield Trinity have followed suit with their redevelopment looking classy after such rapid progress, whilst the Castleford Tigers are the next on the list to redevelop their old stadium.

The Jungle has been the home of the Tigers since 1926, with its tremendous atmosphere and game day experience being a constant throughout.

However, there is no denying that the Jungle needs a spruce up and, after potential stadium moves have fallen by the wayside, the Tigers have decided to redevelop instead.

Now the Castleford club has revealed that over 1,000 people have shown their support for the club’s planning application and that more people can still send letters of support.

Fans can support two applications – the Axiom site at Junction 32 and the new Jungle redevelopment.

On the Wakefield Council website, the application summary is informative about what the redevelopment means for the current Jungle stadium, with the project set to yield:

– The demolition of existing main (east) stand and replacement with new all-seater stand with associated corporate hospitality and entertainment facilities
– A new gym, club management facilities and offices as well as refurbished high ball skills and wrestling facility
– There will be provision of a fan zone as well resurfacing of car park and circulation areas
– Installation of 4G training pitch with floodlighting
– Selected refurbishment of Railway End (south stand) and refurbishment of Princess Street (west) as well as the Wheldon Road (north) stands including replacement cladding and associated infrastructure, drainage, landscaping and engineering works.

It is a massive project but one which will certainly look the part in the future.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage. #18thMan

Yet another article with a Yorkshire bias to justify their teams existence

Granted Leeds (the wider club) have spent money on Headingley and its a fantastic stadium if you are a Leeds supporter. For away fans, i genuinely dont think it will get any better because of the housing right at the back fo the away end and there is no way that is going to get covered

HKR from memory have built a new stand at one end and a bit of a fans area. Not spent millions but better than it used to be

Wakey and Cas - dont think i need to say anything else on these 2. everyone inside and outside of RL knows they have been taking the p*** for far too long with their promises of new stadium / improvements etc etc Get IMG in and grade them right down the pecking order, giving them a max of 2 years to get it sorted or they are relegated for not meeting the criteria (assuming that there will be some form of criteria / franchise in place), so basically someone needs to grow a pair, and do what should have been done 20 years ago

Do Cas just release different design plans every year?

Surely even Cas fans must be frustrated with plan after plan and not a brick laid?
