Cup Final Set For Wembley

The 2006 event between Huddersfield and St Helens had to be switched to Twickenham when the new Wembley was not completed in time.

But a deal has been struck between the Football Association and builders Multiplex that will see the FA Cup final staged at the new stadium in May.

That will mean that the Challenge Cup final – scheduled for August – will almost definitely be held at Wembley for the first time since 1999.

RFL Chief Executive Richard Lewis says that he is confident that there will be no repeat of this season’s confusion.

"I don't think at this stage we need a contingency. I think it's interesting that the FA haven't got a contingency either and we would reflect the same optimism."
