RFL announces BBC to get major Challenge Cup broadcasting gig

The semi-finals of the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup – a double-header at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium on Sunday 24 April – will be shown live on the BBC’s digital platforms, including BBC iPlayer and the BBC Sport website and app.

Matches will kick off at 2.30pm and 5pm, with four sides aiming to reach the final at Leeds United’s Elland Road Stadium on Saturday 7 May.

The competition is currently at the group stage, with four groups of four teams challenging for quarter-final places. Those ties will be played on the weekend of 9/10 April.

Thomas Brindle, RFL Head of Growth, says:
“This is more good news for the women’s game, and I’d like to thank Warrington Wolves and the BBC for providing both the broadcast platform and the quality of stadia to showcase the skills of some of the best players in our competitions.”

Ticket arrangements for the Halliwell Jones Stadium double-header will be announced once the semi-finalists are known. Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Final tickets are already on sale via the RFL website. The women’s final is part of a triple-header alongside the men’s semi-finals, with all three matches to be broadcast live on the BBC.

The group stage continues this Sunday, with Our League streaming York City Knights versus Wigan Warriors at 12noon.
