The story behind Sting

The trend of mascots at sports grounds began during the early 1990's when clubs up and down the country adopted fun, furry creatures to put a smile on young faces and generally help improve the atmosphere at games. 

Sting was created on the back of our move to Adams Park Stadium, High Wycombe in 2002. Wasps commissioned Rainbow Productions to design a friendly character mascot that could be used as the face of the club on match days and also a recognisable figure within our community.

Sting was an overnight hit with fans young and old. So much so that one of our best-selling items in the Club Shop at Adams Park Stadium was a cuddly Sting figure; often seen in the hands of young fans on our match days.

He continues to play an integral part in life at the Ricoh Arena with appearances on the pitch at every home game, along with other community and family-related events and his ambassadorial role for the Wasps Community Foundation.
