To mark the Northern Ireland Centenary, Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has recently renamed Antrim Stadium to the Northern Ireland Centenary Stadium.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey Councillor Billy Webb, and Deputy Mayor Councillor Stephen Ross, unveiled the new name plaque at a rededication ceremony with local Councillors, members of the NI Centenary Working Group and local runners.


The stadium first opened in 1979 and the newly named Northern Ireland Centenary Stadium will carry with it all the history, events and achievements accomplished by the clubs and athletes over the years.

Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey said:


“I am delighted that we were able to include this special rededication of our athletic stadium in our programme of Centenary events.



“There have been a huge number of successful events at the stadium over the years, as well as athletic stars training here and succeeding in their sporting careers, thanks to the dedication of coaches and clubs. I know there will be many more success stories to come under the new Northern Ireland Centenary Stadium name”.
