Wakefield Wildcats on the move

The Superleague side the Wakefield Wildcats look set to move into a new home after the Government said building work on a purpose-built stadium could go ahead.

The team want to swap their ageing Belle-Vue site for a new 12-thousand seater ground off junction 30 on the M62. It's expected to be finished ready for the 2015 season. The Wildcats were offered a Super League licence on the condition that they found a new stadium.

We have spoke to the club's Chief Executive, James Elston, and Chairman, Andrew Glover, about it.
