THE PITCH

The pitch at Odsal has a distinctive concave contour, with the corners of the pitch behind the try-line noticeably sloping up towards the stands. This was due to the stadium being used to hosting speedway and other motor racing events and so the corners of the pitch were removable to allow full use of the track. With the end of speedway at Odsal, the upturned corners are no longer as pronounced as they once were.

Used for a verity of the event from Rugby, football, horse jumping and tennis, with a standing capacity for concerts at 17,000.
