North stand (Leazes Stand/End, Sir John Hall Stand)[edit]

East stand[edit]

Away supporter sections[edit]

  • Since the 1998 expansion, away supporters have been housed in the upper tier of the north west corner, however they have since been moved along the tier to the other end of the north stand.

Stadium sign[edit]

  • Latterly positioned either side of the Barrack Road steps post 1998 expansion - they were removed on 16 February 2011 as the club sought it's first ever title sponsorship deal, but re-instated on 17 October 2012 by the new club sponsor Wonga
