■ Head­in­g­ley Sta­dium was first con­structed in 1890 and has hosted cricket and rugby matches on the site since then.

■ It has un­der­gone a num­ber of huge re­vamps over the years, most re­cently to cre­ate the Carnegie Pav­il­ion in the cricket ground and the new South Stand in the rugby ground which of­fi­cially opened on Box­ing Day this year.

■ The sta­dium will host the third test of the Ashes in Au­gust, a one-day in­ter­na­tional be­tween Eng­land and Pak­istan and four matches for the ICC Cricket World Cup.
