Wanderers Amateur Athletic Club
|Full name||Wanderers Amateur Athletic Club|
Halifax, Nova Scotia
The Club was founded by members of the Wanderer's Cricket Team in 1882. It was initially active in cricket, track and field and rugby football. The Wanderers had their own playing field, known as Wanderers Grounds, which still exists today. A field house was built in 1896 on the city-owned grounds, which were leased for $100 per year. The field house was destroyed by fire in 1938.
The legacy of the 'Wanderers' name was continued with HFX Wanderers FC, a new professional soccer club founded in 2018, who play at the Wanderers Grounds.
