The 290-capacity Bradley’s Sports Bar, named in honour of northern sporting icon Bradley Wiggins, will boast 18 screens across four different areas as well as a dedicated TV and video wall so guests can keep up to date with all sports at the same time.
The family-friendly bar will be open seven days a week and will serve locally produced food as well as a range of beers and cask ales.
Mill Farm owner David Haythornthwaite said choosing a name for the bar was an ‘easy’ decision. He added: “I’ve always admired Bradley Wiggins and what he’s done for cycling, as well as bringing attention to the north and its sporting achievements. I was fortunate enough to be in Paris when he became the first Englishman to win the Tour De France; it was some day!
“He’s a great example of where hard work and discipline can get you, in life and sport, and I’m looking forward to welcoming sports fans to Bradley’s in honour of Wiggo and to watch him compete at future events. It goes without saying too that he would be welcome to visit at any time.”
Visitors to Bradley’s will have the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors – when not indulging in the world of sport – by relaxing in the alfresco seating area over food and drinks.
At the heart of the Mill Farm Sports Village will be a new 6,000 capacity stadium for AFC Fylde alongside state- of- the-art 5 and 7-a-side pitches, a full size hockey pitch together with a 3G football pitch, petrol station and various restaurants and bars. The development is due to launch this June.
