1895 Cup semi-finals to be streamed on Our League channel

Drew Darbyshire

The semi-finals of the 1895 Cup will be staged back-to-back on Sunday, July 28, with both being shown exclusively on the Our League app. 

The action will kick off at the Olympic Legacy Park in Sheffield at 2pm as the Eagles take on Batley in a home semi-final.

Then at 4pm, the focus will switch to the Leigh Sports Village for the showdown between Leigh and Widnes.

Mark Foster, the RFL’s chief commercial officer, said: “Our League has followed the new road to Wembley for non-Super League clubs with live coverage from ties at Hunslet, Barrow and most recently York where Batley secured their semi-final place in Golden Point extra-time.

“So we’re delighted to confirm that both semi finals of the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup will be shown exclusively live on Our League – and our thanks go to all four clubs for being flexible with the kick-off times and allowing this to happen.

“It sets up a fantastic weekend of knockout Rugby League following the Coral Challenge Cups triple header in Bolton on the Saturday – and means that Our League members will be able to watch all the action live as we find out which two Championship clubs will join the Challenge Cup semi-final winners at Wembley on August 24.”
