Yorkshire members and supporters, who like to watch their cricket from the Main Stand at Headingley, will have new seats to sit on this coming campaign.
After a deal was struck with the Don Valley Stadium (pictured), Sheffield which closed late last year, the Club acquired 700 seats from the stadium, which hosted the World Student Games in 1991.
The seats are currently being installed in the lower tier of the Main Stand for the first time in over 30 years. Supporters will be able to take advantage of the new seating arrangements will be in place for the start of the new season, which starts on April 1 when Yorkshire entertain Leeds/Bradford MCCCU in the traditional season opener.
“The Don Valley Stadium will live on in some form at Headingley,” said David Ryder, Operations Director at Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
“Before the stadium closed in Sheffield, we agreed a deal to take 700 seats from the venue to improve the facilities in the Main Stand. The seats are in excellent condition and were only installed at the stadium a couple of years ago.
“We were aware that we had to improve the seating configuration in the Main Stand, when the current seats weren’t fit for purpose. We believe the new seating arrangement will be an excellent addition to the ground and enhance the matchday experience for both domestic and international cricket at Headingley.”
