A number of years ago Sheffield hosted the world student games, we had the best athletics stadium in the UK and what did Sheffield council decide to do, demolish the stadium. The stadium could have been made to pay for itself, by hosting Pop concerts, Floodlight cricket etc and being named after HSBC for sponsorship. Where will the future Jessica Ennis’s come from and prestigious athletic events be held in the City of Sport?
I managed to get in and take these pictures before it was demolished.
All the best
