History and description

St. James's Park was initially used for football in 1880, but it wasn't anything more than a bare pitch. In the late 1890s, a small stand had been built at Newcastle United's ground. However, the promotion of Newcastle to the First Division in 1898 prompted the club to properly develop the ground, with new terraces being built which brought capacity up to 30,000.

Five more years passed before another round of major reconstruction works began. A new stand at the Barrack Road side and expanded terraces increased capacity to over 60,000 people.

The city of Newcastle planned an extensive redevelopment of St James? Park in the 1920s, but conflicts between the landlord (the city) and planners led to abandonment of the plans.

In 1930, a match between Newcastle and Chelsea was recorded with the highest attendance at 68,386 people.

Further conflicts between the club and city led to a decline in the number of planned events in the 1950s and 1960s, which also led Newcastle to miss out on hosting matches during the 1966 World Cup. This was hosted by Middlesbrough's Ayresome Park instead.

In 1972, the club finally reached agreement with the Newcastle city council, and a new Leazes Terrace Stand opened. Works were to continue with the Leazes End, but relegation and a precarious financial situation ended hopes of further improvements.

The new stand has a maximum capacity of 27,000 spectators. A replacement of the old West Stand was necessary as a result of the Bradford fire, and in 1987 a new stand named Milburn Stand opened. The new stand has a maximum capacity of 27,000 spectators.

Further improvements were needed, but funding only came available after the takeover of the club by Sir John Hall in 1992. In only a few years, three new stands got built, resulting in a bowl-shaped stadium with a capacity of 37,000 seats.

In 1996, St James's Park was the playing venue of the Euro 1996 Championships. It hosted three group matches during this event.

The popularity of the football club required further expansion, and after plans to move to a new stadium had fallen through, the club was instead chosen to build a second tier on top of the Milburn and Leazes stands. Works were completed in August 2000. The stadium now has the largest cantilever roof in Europe.

In 2011, St James' Park was temporarily renamed Sports Direct Arena (after the company of club owner Mike Ashley), but the stadium reverted to its original name after new club sponsor Wonga bought the naming right.

How to get to St James? Park

The Park, known officially as St James' Park, is located on the edge of Newcastle's city centre and is easily reached by public transport. The stadium lies slightly to the east of Newcastle's centre and north of the main railway station, from where it is a 10-minute walk. On its northern side it borders Leazes Park.

If arriving by car, follow the directions to Newcastle's city centre. The stadium is close to most city centre car parks, but due to its location it is advised to travel by public transport.

St James Park is also served by metro (stop St James) if you arrive from elsewhere in the Newcastle region or Newcastle Airport.

Address: St James? Park, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, NE1 4ST

The atmosphere was electric for the game, Manchester United won 4-0, and now I am going to mark out of 10 most general parts of the stadium. Size: 9/10 Atmosphere: 10/10 Quality: 9/10 Outside: 10/10 Owner: -7/10 (Only joking, about 10/10) Actual Team from my point of view: 2/10 Realistic: 9/10.

The view from the gods was not as bad as I thought it was until we scored and you could not tell at all who got it. The atmosphere in here was nuts on derby day and the passion in the north east is second to none in English football. This stadium is good, though with Mike Ashley and his Sports Direct brand the stadium is being tarnished.
