Dates confirmed for 2022 Super League season start and Grand Final

Super League Grand Final trophy

The Super League Grand Final has been brought forward in 2022 so nations will have more time to prepare for the World Cup.

The Grand Final in 2021 was held at Old Trafford on October 9. The date was just two weeks before the World Cup was scheduled to start before it was eventually postponed.

However, Super League clubs have agreed to end the domestic season earlier in 2022. The Grand Final will be played on September 24 next season.

The new start date will be three weeks before the scheduled start of the World Cup. It will give home nations three weeks to prepare before the tournament gets underway on English soil.

The Super League fixtures will be announced on November 25 and the season is expected to get underway on Thursday, February 10.

Tickets for the Super League Grand Final will go on sale on Monday, with a 25% early bird discount available for adults.

So far, the former South Sydney Rabbitohs and New South Wales City forward has made 66 appearances for the Wire since joining in 2019.

The club confirmed that the Australian will once again wear the number 14 shirt, with the other 2022 squad numbers to be announced tomorrow.

“It’s an exciting time for the club with the new coaching set-up coming in. I’m looking forward to being a part of what should be a big year ahead.

“My family are all settled here in Warrington and we love the town. The club have been first class since the day I arrived. It’s an honour to play in front of the Wire fans each week.

“Since crowds have returned you realise how much they were missed. I can’t wait now to get going with preparations for 2022.”
