Halton Borough Council issued a ground-breaking announcement in mid-August 2011 that it would be installing the latest generation of artificial grass pitches for when Widnes Vikings re-entered Super League in 2012. This all-new pitch at the Stobart Stadium Halton will be known as the i-pitch (intelligent pitch) and managed in partnership with Widnes Vikings.
When not in use by the Vikings, the i-pitch will also be available for the community to hire for a whole host of activities such as corporate events, birthday parties and stag do’s. It will also transform into a five-a-side & seven-a-side football and touch rugby facility during the evening and play host to a number of local competitions.
After more than 12 weeks of preparation work, the first strip of the ‘i-pitch’ was laid on Wednesday 4 January.
The i-pitch is open to hire. If you like to express your interest in booking a pitch please conatct a member of the i-pitch team.
