Challenge Cup semi-final venues confirmed

The venues which will host the Challenge Cup semi-finals have been confirmed as Langtree Park, St Helens, and the Leigh Sports Village.

The clash between Leed Rhinos and Warrington Wolves will take place at Langtree Park, on Saturday August 9, with kick-off at 2.30pm.

Castleford Tigers and Widnes Vikings fans must travel to Leigh on Sunday August 10, with kick off set for 3pm.

“We are anticipating huge demand for tickets for what will be two compelling Tetley’s Challenge Cup ties and our advice to fans is to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment,” said RFL marketing director Mark Foster.

“Langtree Park and Leigh Sports Village are perfect venues for the semi-finals and will provide terrific backdrops to some high drama as the four clubs showcase the sport to a national television audience.

“In selecting the venues, we have looked at similar criteria as we did when choosing where to place games for the Rugby League World Cup: one of the big considerations was venues that give us every chance of selling out and creating the very best atmosphere to reflect the stature of Tetley’s Challenge Cup semi-finals.”

Tickets are available from the competing clubs, or from the RFL.
