A Bit of History......

Warrington Wolves are the only club in English rugby league history to have played every season in the top flight. Also nicknamed "The Wire", the club play their home matches at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Formed in 1879, Warrington enjoyed a nomadic first decade as they started out at Sankey Street, before moving to Wilderspool Road, then Slutchers Lane, before returning to Sankey Street and back to Wilderspool Road.

Their first home game was against Oughtrington, which was won by three goals to one. The club then joined with Padgate Excelsior in 1881 and Warrington Wanderers in 1884 to give the club additional players and resources. The merger with Padgate saw J.E. Warren and Harry Ashton join the club, who were to be significant figures in the club’s early development. The benefits were near immediate, as 1886 saw the club’s first silverware, the South West Lancashire and Border Towns Trophy.

The ground was Warrington RLFC's old ground before moving to the Halliwell Jones Stadium. It holds just over 9,200, after substantial decreases for crowd safety. It was their home for well over 100 years, and the move to new ground was widely considered long overdue; one of the stands was deemed unsafe, there was no disabled access, and seating for just over 900.

The sport of rugby league saw a transformation in the mid-90s, with the move from winter to summer rugby. Warrington were scheduled to merge with arch rivals Widnes to form Cheshire, but these plans were resisted, and Warrington took their place in Super League, with Widnes in the league below, despite them also having a place promised at the time.

Super League saw the advent of nicknames, and the club adopted the name "Wolves". In 2004, the club moved into their brand new 14,206 capacity Halliwell Jones Stadium on Winwick Road, with a supermarket next door.
