Magic Weekend postponed

The Super League have confirmed Magic Weekend has been postponed, but they are looking to do it at a later date.

Rugby league has been suspended for the last month, and the UK is still on lockdown, as it aims to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Magic Weekend was due to return to Newcastle this year, after it was in Liverpool in 2019. It was due to take place on the weekend of 23rd/24th May.

Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “It’s regrettable that Super League has had to make this decision – but in light of the current situation, it is sadly unavoidable.

“Our fans will be disappointed because they were all looking forward to returning to Newcastle; however, Magic is still firmly in our plans for 2020, with St James’ Park, at a later date, one of the options being considered.”

They also confirm any tickets that were bought for the event, will still be valid for the new date, which will be announced in due course.
