The home of the Warrington Wolves Rugby League Club, this stadium is distinguished by two commemorative monuments to Brian Bevan, a prolific Australian winger and record-breaking try scorer. In 14 years of playing for Warrington, he scored 721 tries. The stadium also played host to a semi-final of the UEFA Women’s Euro in 2005.
