Wigan and Warrington to open up 2020 Super League season

Wigan Warriors will kick off the opening round of the 2020 Betfred Super League season when they host Warrington Wolves on Thursday, January 30.

Fans will be hoping to get a glimpse of the likes of Jackson Hastings, Jake Bibby and George Burgess for the first time in a Wigan shirt, while Warrington will be hoping Gareth Widdop will be making his debut.

This is the second year in succession that the season will start in January and there will be a Grand Final repeat on Friday, January 31 when defending champions St Helens play host to runners-up Salford Red Devils at the Totally Wicked Stadium.

The remaining fixtures in round one sees Hull Kingston Rovers face Wakefield Trinity on Friday, Catalans Dragons take on Huddersfield Giants on Saturday at the Stade Gilbert Brutus, while Sunday sees a double header at the Emerald Headingley Stadium with Toronto Wolfpack playing their first ‘home’ game against Castleford Tigers, before Leeds host Hull FC.

The Wolfpack will play at Headingley as three of their ‘home’ matches will be away from Lamport Stadium. The other two sees then face St Helens (round 5) and Wakefield (round 8) with venues yet to be confirmed, while their first real home game will be in round 11 when they take on Hull FC in Canada.

A significant change in 2020 will see teams play once across the Easter Weekend rather than the usual two times, with player welfare at the heart of the decision.

Six fixtures will span four days, with Leeds Rhinos kicking things off against Wakefield on Thursday,  April 9, followed by Super League’s traditional Good Friday fixtures, which sees Wigan Warriors face St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium at 2.45pm. The Hull derby, played at Hull College Craven Park, is at 12.30pm on Good Friday. All five UK-based matches will be televised by Sky Sports.

Round 15 sees the Magic Weekend return to Newcastle’s St James’ Park stadium with three games on Saturday, May 23 and another three on Sunday.

The regular season will end on Friday, September 11 with champions St Helens hosting Toronto, Warrington welcome Wigan, Huddersfield trael to Castleford, Hull KR host Catalans Dragons, Wakefield battle Leeds and Salford visit Hull FC.

Super League Chief Commercial Officer Rhodri Jones said: “We are delighted to be able to share the full 2020 schedule with our fans, and after a lot of work, we are happy with what has been created.

“Round 1 promises to be a fantastic start to our 25th season with some real heavyweight fixtures.

“There is a new feel to Easter, appreciating the tough nature of Super League on the players, and we’ve kept the Friday night final round of games which proved so successful in 2019.

“There is clearly a lot of excitement with Toronto Wolfpack coming into Super League and we’ve had to work through a number of logistical challenges regarding their fixtures.

“Their first Super League game hosted at Lamport Stadium in April against Hull FC will be a superb event. It will also be great for new and existing fans to see them kick off their season in a double header at Emerald Headingley.

“As ever, given the unpredictable nature of the sport, we all recognise that changes to the fixture list will have to be made towards the end of the season to accommodate our broadcast partner, Sky Sports.”

Main talking Points
