Today’s the day, here’s what you can expect on match day.
Tickets are on sale online up to 2:30 @ hunslet.mysportstickets.co.uk
Junior Tickets will be available and match day tickets available to purchase from the club reception ticket desk near the stadium reception, but this is likely to be very busy.
Ticket prices for the game are:
- Adults £15
- Concessions £10
- 16-under 21s/students £5
- Children & Young People under 16 Free
Recommended to buy online in advance to reduce queuing on matchday.
Please note all tickets for children and young people under 16’s are free, these tickets should be picked up from the club reception desk on game day.
A common mistake last season was the purchase of an Under 21/student ticket for children and young people online when they can pick up a ticket free of charge at the game.
Car Parking & Transport
The best location for Match-day parking is the ‘overflow’ car park which is a right turn off the mini roundabout if you are coming from the Dewsbury Road up Middleton Grove, or straight across from John Charles approach if you are coming from the motorway. The overflow car park is also only a short walk to the South Leeds Stadium main entrance and turnstiles. The car park in front of the main South Leeds Stadium reception is usually busy with general parking for the Tennis and Aquatics centres and also has a 3-hour maximum time limit with potential fines for overstaying the 3 hours.
There are several disabled bays near the South Leeds Stadium entrance and the Aquatics centre for blue badge holders.
Cottingley is the closest train station to the South Leeds Stadium, but the bus links to the stadium are better from Leeds Central Train Station. You can catch the Arriva bus 118A to the South Leeds Stadium from Leeds Train Station (buses leave at 12:40, 13:40 and 14:00 and it takes approximately 18 minutes to get to the stadium).

Gates will open at 2pm. The South Leeds Stadium is all seater with two tiers. All supporters enter the ground via the turnstiles to the right of the main reception as you are facing the stadium. However, seating in the stadium is unallocated. There is a section on the lower tier in front of the Parkside suite which is reserved for hospitality.
The club are still also taking some precautions in the stadium regarding Covid 19 and will have a red zone in the area directly behind the ‘dug outs’ where the substitutes and support staff sit during the game.
Wheelchair access is via the stadium main reception and the doors behind this on to the stand. Tickets need to be purchased prior to entry, Carers accompanying a spectator in a wheelchair have free access but need to pick up a ticket form the ticket desk.
The club have a small stock of merchandise, which will be available from the club reception desk pre-match until 2.55pm. If your particularly size/item is not in stock, please order via the club website.
If you are interested in the history of Leeds Schools Rugby League we still have a few copies of Steve Boothroyd’s recent book ‘The History of Schools’ Rugby League in Leeds’ and several other Rugby League books.
Food and Drink
The club’s Phoenix Bar will be open from 12:00 for refreshments pre-match.
