2020 Magic Weekend destination confirmed

After plenty of speculation, the location and dates of the 2020 Dacia Magic Weekend has been confirmed.

Following one season at Liverpool FC’s Anfield Stadium, the weekend will return to St James’ Park in Newcastle following popular demand from the fans and a vote from all of the Super League clubs.

The festivities will now return to Newcastle for the fifth year as the current most popular city to host the event so far and will be played on May bank holiday weekend (23rd/24th).

“Super League had a great time at Anfield. In particular, it will be an experience that will live long in the memories of our players,” Super League CEO Robert Elstone said.

“However, we have now spoken at length to our fans and listened to what they have had to say.

“In addition, we have had the opportunity to take advantage of some fierce competition for the event from competing venues.

“As a result of both, we are delighted to announce that the Dacia Magic Weekend 2020 will return to Newcastle and St James’ Park.”
