Description: Keepmoat Stadium

New stadium in Doncaster was subject to wide consultations before construction began and though it doesn’t stand out visually from grounds of similar size, these consultations apparently paid off. 4 years after opening the venue received Stadium Business Award 2010 for best matchday experience.

Four simle, single-tiered stands enclose the pitch, giving a capacity of 15,231 seats, almost 50% more than the previous football ground in town, Belle Vue. Since 2007 the stadium worth Ł32 mln (public spending) is used by three clubs: the Doncaster Rovers, rugby side Doncaster RFLC and female team Belles LFC. From time to time it changes into concert venue for music stars on national tours.
