The Eagles are landing at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park

Jan 13, 2022

Professional rugby league football club, Sheffield Eagles has signed a five-year agreement to play all home game fixtures at the Community Stadium at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park from the start of upcoming season.

We are pleased announce the five-year partnership with Sheffield Eagles that will see the Betfred Championship team play home games at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, with the fixture for the first game at the Community Stadium scheduled for Friday 15 April 2022 at 3pm.

Sheffield Eagles has a long history with Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park having played at the former Don Valley Stadium up until 2013 and then returned to the city in 2018 before decanting to Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium while the new Community Stadium was developed.

As well as becoming a permanent home to Sheffield Eagles, it will also be available for community use.

Liam Claffey, General Manager at the Sheffield Eagles, commented:

“We’re extremely  delighted to have entered into a five-year commercial agreement with Scarborough Group International to confirm the Community Stadium as the new home of Sheffield Eagles. We are looking forward to re-establishing our base in the city of Sheffield once again.

“Now that the deal is signed our focus is on working with Scarborough Group International to ensure we’re able to deliver the best game day experience for our supporters, corporate partners and community stakeholders, and we look forward to welcoming them all to the Community Stadium in the coming months.”

Stephen Marriott, Operations Director at SGI, added:

“Sheffield Eagles have a strong and growing fan base in the city, and this, combined with the investment we’ve made into our Community Stadium will give fans more opportunities to experience the action at a first-class venue. We look forward to working with Sheffield Eagles on this partnership.”
