We are proud sponsor of our local Rugby League club Leigh Centurions which will play in the Betfred Championship in the 2022 season.

 

The club was founded in 1878 and is one of the original twenty-two clubs that formed the Northern Rugby Football Union in 1895.

 

Leigh have been Rugby League Champions twice, in 1906 and 1982, and have won the Challenge Cup twice, in 1921 and 1971. 

 

Leigh moved into their new 12,500 capacity stadium, being made up of 10,000 seats, and a standing terrace of approximately 2,500 in late December 2008.

 

The stadium forms part of the Leigh Sports Village complex was shared with Leigh Genesis football club.

 

The old ground at Hilton Park has been demolished and the land sold for housing development. It is hoped that the new stadium will be the cornerstone of Leigh's application for a Super League franchise in the coming years.
