Sports Events

A sport in Leeds is a tradition more than a spectator event. As well as everything else Cricket is very popular and the Leeds Carnegie Stadium is the main ground. This hosts regular championship, pro40 and also T20 games. It is also a key test venue and hosted an Ashes test in 2009. During the noughties it went through major redevelopment and a new luxury pavilion was built. With its famous West stand and also the special family package tickets, this is one destination not to be missed.

The Leeds United Football Club is the main football club in the area and the home ground is called Elland Road. As well as regular football games which are available through out the season, there are also stadium tours available. The club has competed in many competitions including the FA Cup and were part of the premiership line up for a long time.

Leeds also hosts other events such as the half marathon and also has an indoor bowling centre as well as other facilities. There is also a Roundhay Park Public Golf Course as well as Gotts Park.

Leeds Minibus and Coach Hire can transport you to all sports sites with ease and comfort, and at affordable prices.
