Featherstone to return to Spain in 2021

Josh McAllister

Featherstone have announced that they will return to Spain in January 2021 to face Valencia Huracanes once again. 

Valencia Huracanes were beaten 102-14 by the Championship-outfit in their historic first-ever game earlier this year, and the two clubs have agreed plans to meet again in 2021.

The club, who are hopeful of securing entry to Betfred League One in 2021, also confirmed a mid-season friendly against Rochdale in the UK later this year.

“Having experienced the trip first hand earlier this year and seeing what a fantastic time supporters had, we we’re keen to arrange the fixture again,” said Featherstone Rovers CEO Davide Longo.

“Alicante airport is very accessible from all major UK airports, making it easier for Rovers supporters to travel to the game and enjoy a weekend away.

“We also found it to be an affordable area and extremely welcoming to ourselves and our travelling supporters, hopefully another successful trip can help promote rugby league in Spain.”
