The Halliwell Jones Stadium is home to Super League side Warrington Wolves. The ground was opened in 2004 and has a capacity of 15,200 after it was expanded in 2011.
When built, the stadium bucked the common trend of modern stadia by including terracing areas rather than being an all-seater stadium. There were originally four stands in the stadium – the North Stand (reserved seating), the East Stand (originally unreserved seating but later became reserved seating), the South Stand (home terracing) and the West Stand (visitors’ terracing and overflow of home terracing). It also has enormous pitch dimensions of 120 m x 74 m, as requested by Warrington’s head coach of the time, Paul Cullen, due to his desire to play expansive rugby.
The club has announced plans to increase the stadium’s capacity to around 22,000 should the need arise. The largest ever crowd at the Halliwell Jones was in a 28-10 victory for Warrington over local rivals Widnes in March 2016.
