Newcastle Falcons

Northumbria University and Newcastle Falcons

Lichfields secured the original permission for the development of the Kingston Park Rugby Stadium in 2001. This formed part of the development of a Centre of Excellence for Rugby within the Tyne and Wear Green Belt in partnership with Northumbria University on the fringe of Newcastle. Subsequently we have been retained by Newcastle Falcons to provide advice on further improvements, including development of the North Stand and community use. We are currently assisting the Falcons with their plans to expand the capacity of the ground up to 12,000, and provide a new 4G training and community pitch.

Lichfields was absolutely delighted to secure permission for the expansion of the rugby ground and see our relationship with the Falcons develop, supporting them with their ongoing aspirations and providing an outstanding base for rugby development for the North East.
