North Wales Crusaders relocate for 2021

North Wales Crusaders have relocated for the 2021 season due to Covid-19 regulations.

The club are unable to play at their usual Queensway Stadium home because of Covid-19 regulations, so they will instead play their home games at Stadiwm ZipWorld in Colwyn Bay in 2021.

Stadiwm ZipWorld is a 5,500-capacity venue with a range of facilities available on site, including a gym, corporate boxes and a hospitality section.

Crusaders chief executive Andy Moulsdale said: “We’ve had to adapt on and off the field because of the pandemic, but this move to Stadiwm ZipWorld creates so many opportunities for the club.

“While we’ll be doing everything we can to look after our current fan base in Wrexham by working with them to arrange transport to matches once guidelines allow, this is a chance for us to gain more followers across the whole of the region.

“Stadiwm ZipWorld is a fantastic facility in a great location, with the beach only a couple of hundred metres away and Conwy Castle a couple of miles down the road.

“At Queensway, we’ve been limited to a couple of income streams because of the facilities on site, but our new home will allow us to welcome fans, sponsors and partners to matches in the hospitality area and improve the overall matchday experience we offer.

“We hope all our supports appreciate the decision we’ve had to make and get behind us every step of the way, as they always do, in 2021.

WALES: Rugby league’s forgotten expansion plan?

“We’ll be working with the Welsh government and local authorities to try and get crowds back as soon as we can.

“These are really exciting times for the club as we look to have a successful season both on and off the field in League 1.”

  1. Very disappointing. Love an afternoon at the rugby but whether I’d want to use up a whole day off for league one rugby I very much doubt.
    Hopefully will move back to Wrexham soon.
