Final replay would be at Reebok Stadium

Should the Challenge Cup final be a draw, the replay will be held at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium on Wednesday September 5th (7.15pm).

Leeds and Warrington go head-to-head at Wembley on Saturday (2.30pm kick-off), and the two teams have history of draws on the big day.

There have only ever been three replayed Challenge Cup finals since 1897, Leeds being involved in the first in 1910, when they defeated Hull 26-12 at Huddersfield following a 7-7 draw.

In 1954, Warrington famously took Halifax to a replay, winning the replay in front of a record crowd of 102,569 at Odsal.

The other and most recent final replay came in 1982, when Hull and Widnes drew 14-14 at Wembley, before the Airlie Birds were victorious 18-9 in the replay at Elland Road.
