The Mend-A-Hose Jungle
Wheldon Road Stadium first became home to Castleford RLFC in 1927. The ground was originally home to Castleford Town Football Club, with Castleford RLFC taking up home a year after their first season as a senior rugby club (having played the first season as what is now Castleford Lock Lane).
The stadium has a capacity of 12,000, but back in 1935 had a record attendance of 25,449 for a third round challenge Cup match v Hunslet. The stadium has been named the Mend-A-Hose Jungle since 2014.
