WARRINGTON Rylands home ground at Gorsey Lane has been renamed The Hive Arena following a new sponsorship deal with the town centre destination venue development.
The club announced the partnership with The HIVE WA1 saying “As of today Gorsey Lane will be renamed The Hive Arena in a new deal that sees the town’s latest destination venue become the main sponsor of the ground.”
The Hive WA1 is a multi-purpose environment located in the heart of Warrington town centre. It is a development of one of Warrington’s iconic buildings, the former TJ Hughes site. The Hive WA1 is a thriving community and one-stop destination that feeds the functional requirements of our lives. It provides extensive leisure and social activities, office and cultural amenities.
The Hive WA1 is a brand-new boutique shopping mall that aims to bring business to Warrington and help expand the town centre. It is set to open in the former TJ Hughes store on Sankey Street and will feature 8 stores. The Hive WA1 also includes a brand-new boutique hotel experience that is set to open its doors in 2025.
Club Director Andy Hibbert said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Neil Trainer and the team for enabling this new partnership to become reality.”
