For fans of a certain age, it is the club traditional ground of Wilderspool that will always be home for Warrington but since 2004, the club have played at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Their new ground is the perfect mix of standing terraces and modern seating including having a large stand running the full length of the pitch that houses the largest amount of home fans and certainly the most vocal to create a great atmosphere on match days.
The Wolves are located in the Cheshire town of Warrington which is in the sports northern heartlands.
As well as been known as the Wolves, the club is perhaps better known to their fans as the Wire which is in reference to the wire-drawing industry that the town built up around.
The club were founded as Warrington Zingari Football Club all of the way back in 1876 when the club were part of the old RFU Lancashire league.
In 1895, the club joined so many other northern based club in joining the breakaway Northern Union and therefore they are one of the oldest 22 Rugby League clubs in the world.
The clubs original name came from the fact that they lacked a permanent home and for much of their early existent, they would move from one ground to another, change names regular and even merge with other local clubs.
If the run up to the great schism, Warrignton took on the name of a former club in the ton called Warrington Football Club and they started to enjoy some success on the field in local competitions.
The club struggled upon joining the Northern Union however but they did get the chance to put down roots off of the field as they signed a 10 year lease for their new Wilderspool home which would of course go onto become their home stadium for well over 100 years.
Success wasn’t far away however as they would reach the final against in the 1904-05 seaosn and this time they would pick up the trophy by defeating Hull KR.
Another cup win would come a couple of seasons later and in 1908 the first touring Australian side would face off against Warrington, with the hosts win 10-3.
Warrington signed a couple of the Aussies and they would continue to enjoy successful cup campaigns up until the outbreak of the First World War although things would get tougher after the war and there next successful seaosn at the national level wouldn’t come until after the 2nd World War when they picked up their first national championship in 1948.
That set the scene for the club most successful period which came in the 1950’s here they would win 2 Challenge Cup finals and pick up 2 league championships.
Although they would then manage to pick up a cup win in 1974, much of the next few decades would see the club starved of silverware and struggle both on and off of the field.
The 1990’s brought around lots of change for the sport in England and the same can be said for Warrington who changed their name to the Warrington Wolves.
At the end of 1990’s, the club managed to take advantage of Tesco needing planning permission to build in the town and the council offering a good incentive to move grounds with the club doing just that by moving to their new Halliwell Jones Stadium.
Soon after moving, the club were taken over by event promoter Simon Moran who splashed the cash and brought in top stars from rivals and from across the globe including bringing in Kangaroos superstar Andrew Johns just for the play-offs.
Big spending and big name signing have continued throughout the reign of Moran but they have also started to develop there own stars and this has helped them keep at the very top end of the sport including a number of Challenge Cup victories over the past couple of decades.
