With preparations for the 2024/25 season ramping up, we have seen work begin at the John Smith’s Stadium this week to relay the pitch and restore our iconic arches.

As part of the Club’s continued investment into our home, the playing surface at our home is undergoing a full refurbishment, having been scalped and relaid to ensure the highest possible quality for the upcoming campaign.

Hosting a full calendar of activity between Town and Giants home fixtures each season, the work ensures that any damage or wear sustained is fully repaired and restores the surface to pristine condition, ensuring that it is once again in the best position possible to remain robust throughout another challenging season.

Similarly, we have instructed cleaning work to begin on the famous white arches of the John Smith’s Stadium, bringing one of the most recognisable features of our proud home back to former glory. A manual job, cleaners harnessed to the roof of the stadium have been washing the metal from close quarters to ensure their bright white exterior once again shines through.

All happening quickly on the back of the investment into new Club offices at the John Smith’s Stadium, the work reinforces our commitment to our home as we approach the 30 year anniversary of our first fixture here after moving from the old Leeds Road in 1994.

Looking forward to welcoming back supporters to our home in August, if you haven’t already, you can still renew your 2024/25 until midnight tonight - Friday 7 June - with General Sale beginning at renewal prices for two weeks from Monday 17 June.
