The club’s first and reserves teams will play matches at the ground.

Featherstone have announced that Wakefield AFC will play their home matches at their Millennium Stadium home next season.

Wakefield play in the 11th tier of English football and will move their entire senior set-up, including Reserves matches, to the ground at Post Office Road.

The team previously played matches in Barnsley but will now return to the WF postcode and Wakefield council area.

Rovers CEO Davide Longo said: “We are delighted to announce that Wakefield AFC will be playing their 2020/21 home fixtures here at the Millennium Stadium.

“We believe that our stadium is the best in the district and this partnership shows that our facilities are at a high standard.”

“They are an ambitious club who share similar goals as us when it comes to promotion and expanding their profile both on and off the pitch, this move for both sides means we can aim to achieve our objectives under one roof.”

Wakefield AFC Owner Mike Hegarty commented: “We are delighted to have been invited to share our season and ambition with Featherstone.

“We continue to build our future with local professionals and both Wakefield Trinity and Featherstone Rovers have just been so welcoming and supportive to a fledgling club.

“We really do hope that we can provide the base to attract a few rugby fans throughout the district to help us grow.

“As a child I watched Featherstone in the 1950s so this partnership is incredibly special.”
