Hayley Stadium

Hayley Stadium was a purpose-built 311 yard (285 m) long Motorcycle speedway located at Queensway Meadows on the eastern side of the City of Newport, South Wales. The stadium was home to the Newport Wasps speedway team.[1]

In March 2010 the Wasps engaged a minister to lift a gypsy curse on the stadium.[2]

In 2012 Newport Wasps folded. Within a week of the closure of Newport Wasps the offices in the main stand sustained fire damage and Hayley Stadium was subsequently demolished..[3]
