WIDNES Town FC has struck a deal to play football at an existing ground during its first season.
Stephen Speed, a director at the club, said there will the initial deal has an option for a 12-month extension.
He said the stadium serves a current football team but could said the club has agreed not to reveal which one at this stage.
The ground’s occupants are in a higher division than the North West Counties league (NWCL), which is where Widnes Town FC’ will start out.
Mr Speed said the stadium is outside Halton.
The club was keen to publicise the deal after Halton Borough Council rejected a request to play at Stobart Stadium.
Mr Speed added that another request to play at the home to the Widnes Vikings could be successful at a later date, pending the level of support for the fledgling football club.
It was revealed last week that Widnes Town FC has been set up. It has received approval from the NWCL and will meet next month with the Football Association to table its proposals and application for FA affiliation.
