Visiting the Shay

Our Shay Stadium is one of the leading grounds in British rugby league, boasting top class facilities for disabled supporters, as well as a bumper capacity of 14,061. The stadium was chosen as a host venue during the 2013 Rugby League World Cup, which saw 10,266 spectators pack in to see Tonga down Italy. 

Disabled & Carers support

The safety and comfort of our disabled supporters is paramount to the Club. We have 2 designated disabled seating areas in the comfort of our East Stand; one from the top floor gantry, the other on the first floor balcony area.

Please note that disabled car parking can be booked in advance, but is still first come first served after a certain point. All supporters are encouraged to get to the Stadium as early as possible, to secure your space.

For all complimentary carer’s tickets, please come to the ticket office in the East Stand Main Reception. From there, you can choose to be taken to an allocated spot and will be able to use our stadium lift to get around the East Stand.



Commentary for the blind

We try to give every one of our supporters the best experience we can, and cater for all needs. The MBI Shay Stadium provides Halifax RLFC with special free of charge equipment, meaning we can be the only Club in Championship with free of charge blind commentary headsets. To arrange for a headset, please call the Club before a matchday on 01422 342 792, or see a member of Senior Council staff in the ticket office on Matchdays.



Stadium Bars

Our Stadium hosts three bars, all of which are open for our matchdays..

The Supporter’s Bar is accessible from the Main East Stand Car Park. It’s free of charge and open to all before and during the game!

The South Stand bar is accessible underneath the South Stand, and opens throughout the day. All supporters are welcome to venture into the bar after for Neil Arber’s Supporter’s player presentations, including a Man Of The Match with the winning player.

The Banqueting Suite is where our highly regarded matchday hospitality takes place. Call 01422 342 792 for details and availability. After the match this becomes our Players’ Bar where sponsors, diners and other guests can mingle with players from both teams.
