The match takes place at the John Smiths Stadium in Huddersfield, which is one of the biggest and most easily recognisable Rugby League stadiums in the northern hemisphere.
The ground is split into 4 separate stands, which are all different shapes but that all have rounded sweeping roofs to bring it all together.
Capable of hosting around 24,000 fans when full, the ground can be a great place to watch the sport, but it can also often prove to be far too big for a club the size of the Giants and atmosphere can often be lost in the banks of empty seats.
Thankfully, for the visit of Hull KR, there will likely be plenty of interest locally and a bumper home crowd but there will also be a big following from Humberside and that should make for a great atmosphere and a great setting for the players to play their best and entertain us all.
Aside from been the home of the Giants, the ground has also hosted top flight Premier League football for Huddersfield Town, numerous Challenge Cup sei-finals and it has also hosted many internationals including numerous England matches and all matches at Rugby League World Cups hosted in the UK.
The town is located almost centrally along the M62 motorway, thought of as the heartlands of the sport in England and it remains a hotbed of the sport as the town is surrounded by Halifax, Bradford, Leeds, Wakefield, Sheffield, Rochdale, Oldham, Dewsbury and Batley, all home to professional Rugby League clubs.
Any Rugby League fan with even a passing interest in the sprots history will know that the town is also known as the ‘Birthplace of Rugby League’ as it was at the town George Hotel where the top northern Rugby clubs of the era decided to break away from the RFU in 1895 and start up a new code of the sprot which would be call the Northern Union- which over the years has developed into the wonderful sport of Rugby League that we all love.
Although these 2 clubs are based in Yorkshire, it would be a stretch to call the game a derby match, but it is one of those games that on extra importance due to the stature of both clubs and the relative closeness of the clubs does often make for a bumper crowd.
