Leigh to host Challenge Cup triple-header

Leigh Sports Village, home of Leigh Centurions

Leigh will host a Challenge Cup triple-header on Saturday, June 5.

The first of the three matches will be the women’s Challenge Cup final, which will kick-off at 11:15am, with live coverage of the match on BBC Two.

Hull will then take on St Helens in the first of the men’s semi-finals, with this clash kicking off at 2:30pm and it will be live on BBC One.

In the final match of the triple-header, Castleford will face Warrington in the other semi-final, with the match kicking off at 5pm on BBC Two.

Covid restrictions mean that capacity at the Leigh Sports Village will be severely limited. Each of the four Challenge Cup semi-finalists will be given an initial allocation of approximately 600 tickets, with the clubs running ballots for the ticket allocations. The Rugby Football League say details for the women’s Challenge Cup finalists will be confirmed in the week starting May 24.

The women’s Challenge Cup semi-finals will be played at the LNER Community Stadium in York, with both games being streamed by the BBC. The first semi-final will see York face Castleford followed by St Helens against Cup holders Leeds.
