    Tigers and Sharks

    by deeper_blue Written Oct 19, 2012

    Hull is home of some decent teams, Hull City Football Club, Hull FC and Hull KR. The first two play at the KC Stadium and play hard. The tigers currently play in the Championship but spent 2 seasons in the Premier League.

    Match day at the KC
    1 more image

    Hulls premier sporting stadium is based in West Park and is home to football ( Hull City) and rugby (Hull FC). Based on Sunderlands Stadium of Light this is a slightly smaller version but expansion is possible should capacity be needed to be increased.
    Set in parkland but in a rather run down area - there is very little to see in the area outside the stadium so just get in and stay whether it is for sport or one of the concerts that take place here. The area is not always safe at night so do not venture far from the bus stops or car parks.
    Catering is OK - the restaurant is quite good I am told but my only experience of eating here are the pies and drinks from the take away places on the walk ways.
    Disabled access good in the East and South stands but do not go to the West Stand for a pitch side place - wheelchair access is not good.

    Hull Ice Arena

    Skating at Hull Arena

    Hull has an international size ice arena where skaters from across the world come to compete in competitions here. The arena is also home to the ice hockey team the Stingrays.
    There are many public sessions for people who just want to fun skate too and this is a large arena that is also used for concerts and exhibitions.
    There is a small cafe but its rather basic but clean and its prices are reasonable.

    Beverley Racecourse

    Hull does not have a racecourse but there is a first class course at Beverley a few miles north of Hull. This is the only racecourse I have been to but an afternoon or evening here is certainly exciting and the area north of Beverley , especially the Malton area, is where racehorses are bred and trained.
    2009 prices are - Premier - £19.00. Ladies Day Premier - £22.00. Grandstand & Paddock - £12.00. Senior Citizens / Students - £8.00. Ladies Day Grandstand & Paddock - £14.00.
    Ladies Day Senior Citizens/Student - £10.00.Premier - £19.00. Premier - £19.00
    Ladies Day Premier - £22.00. Grandstand & Paddock - £12.00. Senior Citizens / Students - £8.00. Course Enclosure (per car) - £5.00. Per Person - £5.00. Senior Citizen/Students - £3.00. Course Enclosure (per car) - £5.00. Per Person - £5.00. Senior Citizen/Students - £3.00.
    Ladies Day is one of East Yorkshires premier events to be seen at and it is wise to book in advance.

    Hull City vs Huddersfield 01/01/05 (City won 2-1!)

    It was almost hilarious that Hull City AFC have been playing League Two Football in a stadium worthy of the Premiership. Recent investment in the club, a noticeable swelling of the fanbase and some pretty damn solid football nonetheless has propelled them up into the giddy heights of League One. The League Championship now beckons! Tickets to see them at the 25,000 seater KC Stadium are generally easy to come by unless it's a local derby, but for good seats you best book in advance regardless. There's also Rugby League played at the stadium too and tickets are fairly easy to come by.
