Hull FC’s final home game of the regular season against Wigan Warriors will now take place on Saturday 11th September (3pm KO), with a fan day planned aimed at young supporters, families and a special offer for members.
Following the recent Hull Derby fixture, the club has decided continue to trial the Saturday fixture slot ahead of a possible return to weekend fixtures next season.
The Hull has revealed that Thursday and Friday evening fixtures are challenging for families and younger fans, so this is an opportunity to explore ways in which we can encourage supporters to return to the MKM Stadium following the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Warriors fixture was already being considered for Saturday 11th September by Super League and SkySports and having already held lengthy planning discussions with the Stadium Management Company it has been decided to remain on this date.
It is set to be an important play-off clash as Hull and Wigan fight for a place in the top six.
