Rhinos to pay tribute to supporters with new South Stand mosaic

As Leeds Rhinos prepares to welcome back supporters into Emerald Headingley for the first time in over a year, the club are preparing to honour their fans with a giant mosaic on the walls of the concourse in the South Stand.

During a challenging year, which has seen crowds unable to attend matches at the stadium due to lockdown restrictions, the Rhinos fans have stayed strong and shown their support for Richard Agar’s side from their homes and the club is now wanting to show their gratitude for that loyalty by giving them a chance to be a part of this unique piece of artwork at the famous stadium.

To be part of the mosaic supporters simply need to share their photo memories and experiences of following the club.  Whether it is of their first Rhinos game, their favourite family shot from one of the club’s Grand Final wins or one of themselves wearing the new 2021 kit – all will form part of the Rhinos mosaic.

Alongside those fans memories, there will also be images of the club’s Hall of Famers and legends, such as Rob Burrow MBE, Kevin Sinfield MBE, John Atkinson, Lewis Jones, John Holmes and many more. Supporters can upload multiple images to an online photo booth and all the photos put together will depict an image of the old South Stand.

Overall, 5,000 images are needed to complete the project and Leeds Rhinos Head of Marketing Matt Adams has encouraged fans to get involved: “We’ve really missed the fans this year and this is just one way that we are preparing to welcome them back to Emerald Headingley,” he said.

“That is why we thought that the mosaic was a great project to involve the fans.  The supporters are the heart of our club and this is why we want to incorporate their memories into this new mosaic which will form a giant image of one of the most historic stands in world sport. It will be great to see it finally completed.

“We’d like to thank everyone for their support over the last year and hopefully, it won’t be too long before fans will be allowed back onto the terraces. Hearing the stadium in full voice again will be amazing for the team and the club.”

The mosaic will be in place for the first game fans are allowed back into Emerald Headingley. Watch out across the Rhinos social channels for any updates.
