Worcester Warriors’ new Fanzone at Sixways will be sponsored by the club’s long-term IT partner EBC Group.
The EBC Fanzone is an impressive new addition to the facilities at Sixways this season and has proved popular with Warriors regulars and visiting supporters.
The Fanzone, behind the North Stand, has bars and stalls selling a range of food including speciality vegan dishes, pulled pork and menus that will match the themed matchdays throughout the season. There is also a covered seating area and entertainment for all the family before and after every Warriors home match.

“The new Fanzone has been a huge success with supporters this season but we are always looking at ways to enhance the matchday experience for supporters.”
In addition to the EBC Fanzone Warriors have also installed new floodlights, two big screens and a new PA system for this season.
