Fans feel Worcester Warriors sale can help club move on from 'shambles'

Worcester Editorial 27th Apr, 2024   0

WORCESTER Warriors supporters have welcomed the ‘overwhelmingly positive’ news the firm which owns the club has been sold.

The move, which saw the pre-pack administration sale of Atlas Worcester Warriors Rugby Club to Junction 6 Limited, has protected more than 60 jobs and aims to ensure Sixways Stadium can continue to operate.

The new consortium, led by Wasps owner Chris Holland and with the support from Worcester’s business community, has now revealed ambitious plans to return professional sport to Sixways.

Worcester Warriors Supporters Trust has been fighting to give the club the best chance to get back to the top of English rugby since it went into administration in 2022.

A Trust statement said the dissolution of Atlas was a fundamentally important factor in moving on from the ‘shambles’ of the last 18 months.

It added: “In particular we are in support of the Pre-Pack Administration of Atlas Worcester Warriors Limited.




“The board feel strongly and unanimously it is now time for supporters to get behind both the new ownership and new investors in the club and to ensure that we do all we can to galvanise the local rugby community.

“We will continue to work with Loxwood Holdings and the new operating company of Worcester Warriors to enable our primary aim, the return of the club to Sixways Stadium.”
