Warrington Wolves have announced today that the capacity at their Halliwell Jones Stadium has been re-assessed and increased to 15,300 for the upcoming 2023 campaign.
In a statement shared on their website the club announced the news that will see the Halliwell Jones increase it’s capacity by 100.
Recent seasons and the pandemic restrictions have hindered the ability to truly fill a stadium but with the Wire averaging attendance figures of 8,719 for the 2022 season they rank fifth in the Super League.
The statement on Warrington’s site read: “The Club have been working with the local authority and the emergency services to get supporters safely into The Halliwell Jones Stadium ahead of the new campaign.
“Our application to the Council for a new Ground Safety Certificate was approved, coming into force on Friday 3 February 2023.
“Our previous record crowd was 15,008 fans when we faced Widnes Vikings on Good Friday 2016.”
Whilst the increase is only minor it can be seen as another small thing that clubs across the league are doing to try and impress the sport’s new advisors IMG.
The 15,300 capacity will see Warrington hold the sixth highest capacity heading into the 2023 season, and they’ll hope to push those attendance figures up in line with their performances as they come back off a poor 2022 season.
