Super League restart confirmed

The Super League will restart on 2nd August, it was confirmed today with three games at a neutral venue.

As part of a revised season, clubs will play a further 15 rounds, before the top four then go into the playoffs. The winners will then go through to the Super League Grand Final towards the end of November.

The three games to take place will be Hull KR against Toronto Wolfpack, St Helens against Catalans Dragons and Huddersfield Giants against Leeds Rhinos.

All clubs will then return to action a week later, with all matches taking place behind closed doors until further notice.

Super League also say they are monitoring the situation closely in France and Canada.

Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “We are delighted to confirm Betfred Super League will be returning in just a few weeks’ time on Sunday August 2, live on Sky Sports.

“We are in the final stages of confirming where the games will be played, and we continue to work closely with Sky Sports to deliver the best possible broadcast schedule for our fans. Further details of this will be confirmed over the coming weeks.

“Above all we know that fans want to get back into grounds to support their teams.  We will continue to follow government advice and work alongside the RFL, clinical advisors and ground safety personnel to ensure that when that time comes, Super League is ready to welcome back its fans at the first opportunity.

“Whilst the recent government announcements underline increasing optimism, the pandemic remains unpredictable. Our final fixture schedule needs to respond to opportunities that will unfold over the coming weeks and accordingly, full details of fixtures, venues and season structure will be confirmed as they become known.”
