Broadcast details confirmed for Challenge Cup

The broadcast schedule has been confirmed for the two sixth round matches of the Challenge Cup.

It is a double-header at The John Smith’s Stadium, with both matches shown live on the BBC on 22nd August.

Firstly, Castleford Tigers will face Hull FC at 2.30pm on BBC One, whilst Wakefield Trinity and Catalans Dragons face off at 5pm on BBC Two.

The draw was conducted last week. The winners of the first game will play Wigan Warriors, while Salford Red Devils lie in wait for the winners of Game Two.

RFL Chief Commercial Officer, Mark Foster, says: “Rugby League is back, the Coral Challenge Cup is back and it’s exciting to restart coverage of the competition with a double header live on the BBC.

“We owe the BBC, Coral and the clubs a debt of gratitude for getting us to this stage, and we can now look forward to some rich entertainment from the fabulous athletes who play our game.

“It’s also fitting that this double header will take place in Huddersfield as we celebrate 125 Years of Rugby League almost to the day, and that famous meeting at The George Hotel at the end of August in 1895.”
