Trailfinders Sports Ground is a rugby ground in the West Ealing area of London, England. It is the home ground of Ealing Trailfinders Rugby Club and London Broncos rugby league club.[1][2]

Records[edit]

On 18 April 2015, Ealing Trailfinders set the record attendance for a rugby union match at TFSG hosting Rosslyn Park attracting 2,278 which is currently the record at the ground.[3]

On 20 August 2016, London Broncos hosted 10 times Super League champions Leeds attracting a record rugby league crowd at the ground of 1,845.[4] It was also the first ever televised sports match at the ground with Sky Sports at the game.

On 3 February 2019, London Broncos broke their rugby league record at the ground when a crowd of 2,149 watched Broncos defeat Wakefield Trinity 42-24 in the Super League.

Layout[edit]

The Trailfinders built a main stand, which includes a clubhouse and tiered seating, plus changing rooms for the players, and general admission areas in front of the stand.

There is another smaller stand located at one end of the ground, which offers covered seating.

Another stand is being constructed at the opposite end, it will have a capacity of 1000. This is being built due to London Broncos being promoted into Super League.

The other side of the ground has a scoreboard bench seating, and is open, giving access to another field behind.
