Kingston Communications (also referred to as the KCOM Stadium or the Hull City Stadium) is a stadium located in Kingston, the UK. It is used for different sport and non-sport events. It is also the second biggest rugby league stadium in the UK. The KCOM Stadium belongs to Hull City Council and run by the SMC.
The idea to create the new stadium was born in 1997. The construction of the new complex began in the late 1990s, and it was complete in 2002. The total costs of the venue reached 44 million pounds. The ground is mainly used by Hull City A.F.C. and Hull F.C. Except for various sports events, the stadium is also often used for concerts of world-famous bands and singers, including The Who and Elton John.
In 2011, Hull City announced that the West Stand would be sponsored by the local Cranswick plc, and in two years, the East Stand was announced to be sponsored by Ideal Standard. Currently, the stadium’s capacity is 25,400, but the management of Kingston Communications has announced about the plans to enlarge its capacity up to 32,000. Today, it is the all-seater two-tier stadium with the first tier including 20,000 seats, and the second tier featuring about 5,000 seats.
