Challenge Cup semi-final double header sold out

The 2018 Challenge Cup semi-finals have now officially sold out.

For the first time in Challenge Cup history both semi-finals – St Helens v Catalans Dragons (12.30pm) and Warrington Wolves v Leeds Rhinos (2.45pm) – will be played in one venue, The University of Bolton Stadium.

Rugby Football League chief executive, Ralph Rimmer, said: “The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup is the most prestigious competition in Rugby League and holding two semi-finals in one stadium is another historic moment in its legacy.

“The 2018 competition has been full of excitement – from Round 1 right through to the semi-finals – and it’s fantastic that the two fixtures will be played in front of a full house at The University of Bolton Stadium.

“I am certain that the capacity crowd will create an incredible atmosphere at Bolton and I look forward to watching two extraordinary games between four top sides as they battle for a place at the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final.”

Supporters who don’t have a ticket to the game are still able to watch all of the action live on BBC One from 12.15pm on Sunday, August 5 or listen on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The semi-finals round off a bumper weekend of Challenge Cup action as the Women’s Challenge Cup Final – Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers (3.00pm) – and the Women’s Challenge Shield Final – Bradford Bulls v Stanningley (1.00pm) – take place at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, Warrington on Saturday, August 4.
