Warrington post their biggest attendance in Super League history

It would be fair to say 2023 has been a good year for the Warrington Wolves.

After a dismal first season under Daryl Powell last season, in which the Wolves finished 11th despite winning their first three games, the current campaign has brought smiles back the faces of the Wire faithful.

Under pressure from the very first game of this season, Powell’s men have been on fire and heading into tonight’s game against arch-rivals  Wigan they had a 100 percent record having won all eight matches in Super League.

Unsurprisingly, that form has them top of the table and has led to back-to-back Coach of the Month awards for Powell as his side have quickly become the team to beat in 2023.

The fans at the Haliwell Jones Stadium have been loving what they have seen and attendance are up to an all-time high, with it peaking in tonight’s game against the Warriors.

Though a big crowd was expected, few could have predicted that the Wolves would post their biggest-ever attendance in Super League history with 15,026 turning out for the blockbuster encounter.

That number beats all previous figures they have posted in the Super League era, which includes all attendances at their current Halliwell Jones Stadium home their previous Wilderspool Stadium home.

It continues the current great momentum in Super League after a number of bumper crowds over Easter, with Wigan themselves posting their biggest attendance at the DW Stadium since 2005 during their Good Friday win over St Helens.
