Bradford to play at Headingley in double-header

Headingley will host three double-headers in 2020, after it was confirmed Bradford’s Championship clash with Dewsbury will be held there.

The game, on Sunday June 21, will be played before Leeds’ Super League game at home to Wakefield.

Leeds are already due to open up the Super League season with a double header, their game against Hull following Toronto’s clash with Castleford.

Then later in the season, on August 7, Toulouse will face London Broncos prior to Leeds’ game with Catalans.

The Rhinos will also participate in a double header in Toulouse, when their clash against Catalans on May 30 will take place at the Stade Ernest Wallon along with Toulouse’s Championship game against London, which has been moved from the Summer Bash in Blackpool.

Bradford are playing all of their home games at the Tetley’s Stadium, home of Dewsbury Rams.

The fixture being moved to Headingley is the Rams’ designated home game between the two sides.

A Bulls spokesperson said: “We fully support the decision for Leeds Rhinos’ Emerald Headingley Stadium to host our away fixture against Dewsbury Rams in what promises to be a fantastic afternoon of action on and off the field.”
