Super League club announce sensational ticket sales for Challenge Cup clash

Venues and broadcast details for the semi-finals of both the Men’s and Women’s Betfred Challenge Cups have been confirmed, with double-headers at Warrington’s Halliwell Jones Stadium on Saturday 22 July and Headingley Stadium, Leeds, on Sunday 23.

On Saturday 22 both Saints teams will be in action at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, following their respective semi-final victories at the weekend. St Helens Women play York Valkyrie (KO 11.45am), while the Men face Leigh Leopards (KO 2.30pm).

And both Wigan Warriors sides are involved in the following day’s (Sunday 23 July) Betfred Challenge Cup double-header at Headingley Stadium, where Warriors Women take on Leeds Rhinos (KO 2.15pm) and the Men play Hull KR (KO 5pm).

All four ties will be covered live by BBC Sport. BBC1 will broadcast Leigh Leopards versus St Helens and Hull KR v Wigan Warriors will be on BBC2, while both Women’s semi-finals will be streamed live on BBCiPlayer. BBC Radio 5Live and regional BBC radio stations will also bring live action from the semi-finals.

Tickets quickly went on sale after this confirmation and Hull KR fans were quick to purchase them.

According to the club, it is the fastest selling game they have ever seen and they are already asking the RFL for further allocations at Headingley as they hope for a repeat of the 2015 semi-final at the same venue.

The club said:

“This is the fastest any fixture has ever sold, so whilst the new ticket platform is working and easy for 99% of you, we appreciate there’s 1% who have experienced some teething issues. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can! Overwhelming demand / support.”

They have now sold out their first allocation and are asking for more.
