Championship side Swinton are to train at the AJ Bell Stadium, home of rivals Salford, in 2018.
The Lions players and coaching staff will have access to outdoor training pitch facilities, a well equipped gym and meeting room.
The club’s operations director, Steve Wild, said: “Last season we centred our main training operations over at Fallowfield with Manchester University.
“Whilst those facilities were excellent they incurred a significant cost, plus it wasn’t the most convenient location for our players, the majority of whom are based on this side of the city.
“We wanted somewhere more local, but which offered the highest standards in training facilities. We are therefore delighted that we have been able to agree excellent terms with the AJ Bell Stadium.”
Swinton will be at the AJ Bell Stadium this Sunday when they take on Salford in a pre-season friendly, kick-off at 1pm.
