The RFL has confirmed the schedule for the 2015 Summer Bash at Blackpool, with tickets now on sale.
The weekend throws up some interesting fixtures, with a Cumbrian derby illuminating the first day.
Relegated Bradford Bulls also renew hostilities with Halifax.
Day two sees an eagerly anticipated derby clash between Dewsbury and Batley, as well as Leigh facing up to Featherstone.
“The Summer Bash is a tremendous addition to the new-look Championship and I am sure Rugby League fans everywhere will embrace the event and take the opportunity to spend a weekend at a venue which has a rich tradition of creating fantastic memories for the sport,” said RFL Chief Operating Officer Ralph Rimmer.
“Blackpool is the perfect home for the Summer Bash: not only are there plenty of accommodation choices but the resort offers our fans many other attractions over the extended Bank Holiday weekend.
“With the dawn of a new era for rugby league and the restoration of promotion and relegation in 2015, every minute of every game matters and that will ensure the Summer Bash will produce drama of the highest quality.”
