Arena Pitch

Premiership and International rugby, professional boxing and football, Elton John. The main arena pitch and stadium represents a fully enclosed facility for sporting occasions and events on the largest of scales. The decision of current Rugby World Cup champions, the New Zealand All Blacks, to base themselves at The Northern Echo Arena during the 2015 Rugby World Cup is perhaps a new marker in what is fast being recognised as a world class facility for the North. 

Situated short distances between major cities of Newcastle and Leeds, the Darlington Arena has a unique geographical placement that lends itself to an exemplary demographic for sport and event audiences. The Arena’s first ever rugby international of England Counties v Ireland set attendance records whilst Elton John has also sold out at the venue in record time.

Mowden Parks unique approach to operating the facility does however mean that you are as likely to see a local school rugby match as you are a monster truck show as you are a corporate team building day when viewing the main arena pitch.
