Kingston Park is the home of the Newcastle Falcons – a Rugby Union club in the second division of England. The club has brought great pride to the ground and the City of Newcastle, which has seen players such as of World Cup winner Johnny Wilkinson ply his trade here. The Falcons (formerly known as Newcastle Gosforth) purchased and moved into the ground in 1990 and gradually built each stand, up to the current capacity of 10,200.
Over the years, The Newcastle Falcons have struggled on-and-off with financial stability, which forced it to sell Kingston Park in 2007 to Northumbria University, but now the club faces its greatest challenge after being relegated from the rugby premiership in 2012. The Falcons share Kingston Park with various other sports clubs, include Newcastle United Reserves, who play their home games at the stadium.
