Mulholland welcomes announcement on future of Headingley Stadium

March 28, 2017 1:52 PM

Following his earlier calls for an agreed plan on the future of Headingley Stadium, Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West and Vice President of the Leeds Rhinos Foundation, has welcomed the news that a funding agreement for the redevelopment of Headingley Carnegie Stadium has been supported in principle by Leeds City Council.

The new proposals will be subject to approval at Leeds City Council Executive Board, and will be considered in mid-April whilst the details of the arrangement are also finalised.

Leeds City Council have released a statement confirming that an agreement has been brokered which will provide the funds that are required to redevelop Headingley Carnegie Stadium.

The £39million scheme includes a new rugby South Stand and joint main stand, shared by the rugby and cricket clubs.

August 2015, blankCommenting Greg Mulholland, MP for Leeds North West, said:

"I am very pleased that a new agreement has been reached which will allow Headingley to continue to host the English cricket team and international test matches.

"This is certainly a very welcome announcement and I hope that the proposals will now be approved by the Council's Executive Board, so we can look forward to many more years of test cricket in Leeds, and especially the Ashes tour in 2019."
