Widnes have released the following statement on the fixture: 

Widnes Vikings can confirm that Sunday’s fixture against Sheffield Eagles has been officially postponed.

Whilst discussions are ongoing with regards to ensuring the club’s survival, it was felt appropriate to postpone this weekend’s Betfred Championship fixture against Sheffield Eagles, which has been done in conjunction with the Sheffield club.
