When the British American Football Association announced that the 2020/21 season was to be
cancelled due to the global Covid19 pandemic, this meant that no American football was to be
played in Chester for over a year. As a growing and transformational club, The Romans are always
looking at ways to elevate our facilities, player offerings and overall quality of experience to
everyone involved in the club directly and within the local community.
As the landscape of recreation of sport and leisure is ever moving and ever changing, there was a
feeling for a need for change from the members of the committee, to allow the club to continue to
grow and flourish under its modern, strong and dynamic leadership. In this vein, The Chester
Romans are delighted to confirm their new home location is the state-of-the-art Ellesmere Port
Church of England College on The Wirral.
This move see’s The Romans calling this £25 million pound venue home, with some of the highest
levels of sporting facilities in the UK now on offer to Chester’s American Football Team, as they
prepare for their 2021 Season.
This brings an end to a very many years partnership with Cheshire County Sports Club, which has
seen some fantastic fixtures over the years, with memories that will last a lifetime. We would like
to publicly thank the team at CCSC for their support and patronage over the years and we would
like to wish them the best of luck for the future.
We’d like to go on record also to thank each and every venue who took the time to speak to us and
explore the possibility of working with The Chester Romans. It is fantastic to see so many topquality training facilities are available to the sports clubs and the general public in and around the
greater Cheshire and Flintshire area.
Thank you most of all to the team at EDU Lettings and Ellesmere Port C of E College for your
assistance in coming to this agreement.
We look forward to welcoming local residents, fans and teams to this fantastic new venue in the
coming months as we prepare for our 2021 season.
