Information on Halifax Panthers Rugby League Club

Attraction type:

Halifax Panthers were formed way back in 1873. It was a Rugby Union club in those days, as all rugby clubs were before the birth of Rugby League in 1895, and was very successful in that code. After becoming the first ever winners of the Yorkshire Cup in 1878, Halifax went on to win it on four further occasions. Several players were supplied for the Yorkshire County side in these years and five were picked for the full England Rugby Union team.

The club moved into their previous home of Thrum Hall in 1886, their home for the next 112 years until the move in 1998 to the redeveloped Shay stadium to ground-share with local footballing neighbours, Halifax Town AFC.

The side currently play in the Betfred Championship and offer a fantastic day out for all the family on Sunday for our Matchdays! Visit our website for fixtures and the latest ticket deals and come and cheer on the Panthers!
