The East Stand for Leeds Rugby replaced the old uncovered standing terrace on St Michael’s Lane with a fully covered 4,278 spectator capacity stand with lower tier standing, an upper tier seating, and a third floor flexible banqueting area with links to the existing Pavilion.

On non-match days the facility is used 7 days a week by Leeds Metropolitan University as teaching space and provides over 1,550 m2 of lecture space in 13 classrooms, all equipped with audio and visual facilities, together with a 420 m2 student cafe, and male, female and disabled toilets at each floor level.

The facility was also developed to complement the development programme for the Rugby Football League’s ‘Framing the Future’, by ensuring clubs become a centre for community activities, and particularly for local junior and youth development in sport.
