Kingsholm Stadium
Kingsholm Stadium is a rugby union stadium in Gloucester, England, and is the home stadium of Gloucester Rugby. The stadium has a capacity of 16,500. It is sometimes nicknamed 'Castle Grim' after the estate where the stadium is built and also in reference to Gloucester's admirable home form. The main grandstand is an all seated area along the south touchline which can hold around 4,500 people. To the left of the stand is where the away fans are usually located. Kingsholm was used as a home stadium for England before they settled at Twickenham and also hosted New Zealand versus United States for a pool match in the 1991 Rugby World Cup. In common with many grounds of English professional Rugby Union clubs, Kingsholm features a significant amount of terraced standing area. The North Stand is such a terraced area and is known colloquially as 'The Shed'. The shed runs down the whole length of pitch from side to side holding around 3,000 people.
