The build up to this weekend of RUGBY at St James' Park . . .

Huge fan village being constructed on the Quayside ahead of mega rugby weekend
ChronicleLIVE

St James' Park is hosting the finals of the Heineken Champions Cup on Saturday May 11th, and the European Rugby Challenge Cup the night before, on May 10th. Anyone on the Quayside today wondering what the pop-up pub and giant elephant was all about? The Champions Rugby Village is currently under construction ahead of a mega weekend of rugby - and it's set to open on Thursday. Several "fanzones" are being set up around the city centre, with the main one taking over the river front from the Tyne Bridge to the Millennium Bridge.

City Council bosses have promised live music from acts including local favourites Smoove & Turrell, a zip wire from the Tyne Bridge and rugby activities including the chance to try kick a ball across the Tyne. With music from Smoove & Turrell, Hyde Park Brass and a soon-to-be-announced special headline act, other performers and activities as well as food and drink stations, there will be almost constant action from the moment it opens on Thursday May 9th until it closes with a stunning fireworks display on the Saturday night.

Rugby Fan village being constructed on the Quayside, Newcastle - pictures 09/05/19 Part 1 of 3

Pictures by myself (over 3 posts) from Thursday 09/05/19 in period approx 1100 - 1200 showing preparations being made to create Fan village on the Quayside, Newcastle associated with the European Rugby Challenge Cup & Heineken Champions Cup at St James' Park, Newcastle






















Images initially hosted on Photobucket with image reduced to appropriate size using method noted in https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showp...55&postcount=1 (flagged up by newcastlepubs in his post https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showp...postcount=1996), using 1024 rather than 800 pix (when using a portrait format picture will be using 768 or 684, being dependent on camera used), to produce an image size similar to what have used in the past

BUT re-input images on 22/05/19 resized with image using Photobucket system to appropriate size, generally 1024 width, (when using a portrait format picture will be using 768 or 684, being dependent on camera used), to produce an image size similar to what have used in the past

A bit of effort with the extra work and especially time needed to resize images following the recently introduced changes to Photobucket system - but may help load up time to view on forum

Almost 50 minutes to create this post due to "wait times" on the Photobucket system

'Record-breaking' rugby weekend boosts Newcastle economy by £35m as 100,000 fans flock to city

Chronicle Live website article from 13/05/19

EXTRACT

'Record-breaking' rugby weekend boosts Newcastle economy by £35m as 100,000 fans flock to city

Council bosses and business leaders say the fastest-ever selling Heineken Champions Cup was a success story for St James' Park and the city

Early indications suggest it boosted the city centre's economy by £35m, with hotel occupancy in Newcastle standing at 97% on Friday and Saturday.

In advance of the weekend, which attracted thousands of rugby supporters from France to the North East, Newcastle Airport put on an extra 62 flights.

England rack up a big win at St James' Park ahead of World Cup
Sky Sports, 7th September 2019



England romped home in their final World Cup warm-up beating Italy 37-0 at St James' Park. England completed their 2019 Rugby World Cup preparations in satisfactory fashion on Friday night courtesy of a routine 37-0 win over Italy at St James' Park, Newcastle. Tries from scrum-half Ben Youngs, centre Joe Marchant - who is not included in England's current 31-man World Cup squad - prop Ellis Genge and full-back Anthony Watson, plus three penalties and four conversions from the boot of skipper Owen Farrell completed the scoring.

England's first home game away from Twickenham since 2015 was initially a low-key affair, with the 50,157 St James' Park crowd distinctly unimpressed by Englands first-half performance but Marchant's solo try after 53 minutes gave them something to cheer. It was only 9-0 at half-time but England ran in four second-half tries in total to run out comfortable winners.

Joe Marchant was one of four try scorers for England against Italy, despite not being in the 31-man World Cup squad. England have never lost to Italy in 25 previous Tests and Connor O'Shea's men, who were without rested skipper Sergio Parisse, never looked like breaking their duck as they concluded their World Cup build-up in untidy fashion.

In the second half, scrum-half Ben Youngs scored the all important opening try from a metre out. The fans cheered when fly-half Carlo Canna opted to twice run the ball from penalties and the Mexican Waves were halted six minutes into the second half when Ben Youngs went over from the base of a ruck for the opening try which followed a strong surge from replacement prop Kyle Sinckler. Seven minutes later Marchant took Youngs' short pass to blow a hole in the Azzurri defence and easily rounded full-back Jayden Hayward for a try on his third appearance.

Rugby League Dacia Magic Weekend 2020 returning to St James' Park, Newcastle

Article from https://www.totalrl.com/magic-weeken...astle-in-2020/ on 08/10/19

EXTRACT

Magic Weekend returns to Newcastle in 2020

As revealed by TotalRL last week, the event will return after a one-year hiatus after relocating to Anfield for the 2019 season.

In a further boost to supporters, the event will take place on Bank Holiday Weekend, something Super League fans have been crying out for over a number of years.

"However, we have now spoken at length to our fans and listened to what they have had to say.

“In addition, we have had the opportunity to take advantage of some fierce competition for the event from competing venues.

“As a result of both, we are delighted to announce that the Dacia Magic Weekend 2020 will return to Newcastle and St James’ Park.”
