The Leigh Sports Village & Stadium project involved significant levels of regeneration and economic re-development by Wigan Borough Council. It is also home to the Leigh Centurions Rugby League and Leigh Genesis Football Clubs, as well as Manchester United and Blackburn Under 21’s, whilst providing comprehensive leisure and education facilities for the community. Tate Security was an integral partner of the £83m design and construction project being responsible for the supply, install, testing & commissioning of a number of Stadia safety & business security systems across the Village & Stadium.

Working from the embryonic planning stages of the project, Tate Security were able to use their vast experience to predict visitor flow around the 10,000 seat stadium complex and subsequently fine-tune all CCTV & security systems at an early stage to ensure maximum scene coverage. Indeed, the CCTV Surveillance system comprised of over 60 cameras including an onsite.


Having years of experience in the provision of Stadium Security, Tate Security were given the brief of designing, supplying, installing, testing & commissioning the following business security systems:-

Fire Detection & Alarm System complying with BAFE & BS 5839.

  • CCTV Control Equipment System
  • Systems Storage & Control Equipment
  • Audio Visual Equipment
  • Turnstile & Access Control Systems
  • Video Intercom System
  • Disabled Refuge System
  • Induction Loop Installations
  • Emergency Voice Communication Systems
  • On-site Staff Training & familiarisation of all Control Systems
  • On-going Maintenance & Servicing of all systems


The Sports Village is growing constantly and as such is always a hive of activity, with match days, seminars, functions, events and customers shopping for merchandise. In order to accommodate the future growth plans, Tate Security supplied flexible Security Management Systems, which are able to expand and accommodate security & surveillance activities for many years to come. Indeed to date, Tate Security continues to support The Village & Stadium by servicing & maintaining all the business security system equipment that they originally installed.
