South Leeds Stadium, which is part of the John Charles Centre for Sport, opened in 1996 and is home to Hunslet Rugby League Football Club. It is located to the south of Leeds city centre roughly on the border of Beeston, Belle Isle and Hunslet.
The stadium has been used by Leeds United for reserve matches, and since November 1995 by Hunslet Rugby League Club. It is the principal athletics stadium in the Leeds area and is the home of Leeds City Athletics Club. The sports complex also includes a tennis centre and indoor bowls and athletics centre. South Leeds Stadium is one of the best available to clubs at Hunslet’s level. The complex is comparable with the Gateshead International Stadium.
With a capacity of 4,000, the facility also hosts several amateur Rugby League events and in May 2012, the Dutch and Chinese Olympic Swimming Teams announced that they would train at the centre in the lead up to the 2012 London Olympics.
