Newmarket Stadium is the proposed home for Wakefield Trinity in Stanley, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England. It will replace Belle Vue which has been home to the rugby league club for over 100 years.[1]

Wakefield Trinity were hoping to move into the stadium for the start of the 2015 season but work has not started on the project due to the developer so far failing to comply with the conditions in both the planning permission and the findings of the Secretary of State at a Planning Inquiry.[2][3]
