The centre is an education and heritage centre which has been named in memory of the young Ulster Rugby player who tragically died in 2012 in a farming accident. The Centre will enable visitors to explore the history of rugby and the benefits that the game can bring.

The Minister said: "The Nevin Spence Centre will bring children from all over the north and from all backgrounds to Kingspan and will allow them to learn new skills in a very fun environment.

"The incredible transformation of the Stadium is now complete. We have a world class stadium as the home of Ulster Rugby and a state of the art education centre. This will provide our young people with the opportunity to learn about the creative industries."
