» SOLID STRIP COMMUNITY STADIUM
The Solid Strip Community Stadium (formerly Edge Hall Road) is the home of the Warriors U19 fixtures. All home games are played at the ground, usually with a 2pm kick off (check press for individual match detail).
The quaint stadium is situated in the residential suburb of Orrell, next to the main Wigan-Liverpool railway line.
Edge Hall Road has also played host to a number of Wigan Warriors 'friendly' matches including the 2004 Terry O'Connor Testimonial fixture.
In 2007 the Warriors opened their £2million state-of-the-art training centre within the grounds of the The Solid Strip Community Stadium. This provides world class training facilities for the Warriors first team, U19 academy structure.
