Huddersfield Giants have confirmed that Sunday’s Betfred Super League clash at the MKM Stadium will get underway at the later time of 3:05pm, due to the Governments National Alert System Test.
Hull FC and the Giants have confirmed that Sunday’s Betfred Super League fixture will now kick-off slightly later than originally scheduled.
The match, which was due to kick-off at 3.00pm, will now kick-off at the slightly later time of 3.05pm.
The kick-off time has been move to avoid clashing with the government’s testing of the national alert system that will send an alarm to every mobile phone in the UK with a 4G or 5G signal at 3.00pm on Sunday.
Supporters should expect their mobile device to make a loud siren-like sound, even if it’s set on silent, vibrate, and read out the alert – the sound and vibration will last for about 10 seconds.
The game will see Hull FC attempt to end their seven game losing run against the Giants.
The fixture also sees Jake Connor make his return to Hull after leaving to join the Huddersfield Giants at the end of last season.
He should receive an interesting reception.
The Giants have had an interesting start to the season. They have faced almost all of the top teams losing a lot of tight games but have shown they can hang with the best.
