Details

The Big Fellas Stadium as well as being the home ground for Featherstone Rovers R.L.F.C. has much to offer as a venue for sporting, social and community events.

The ground itself has been accepted as an ideal venue for such as
BARLA finals
World Cup Qualifying fixtures
Emerging Nations matches

It is renowned for the atmosphere that can be generated and the two stands on either side of the pitch give more than adequate seating and protection whatever the weather.

The clubhouse houses The Atrium, which, as well as being used by the club for social events, live bands etc, is an ideal venue for weddings and other such private functions.

The Study Rovers Learning Centre is used extensively by local schools and really brings the club and the community together in a positive way. This and the full time Development Officer are major contributors to Rovers being names as National League, Community Club of The Year.
