Million Pound Game date now confirmed

The Million Pound Game will be played on Sunday, October 7 (7pm BST) and shown live on Sky Sports.

The play-off game between the fourth and fifth-placed teams in The Qualifiers competition will be played at the home ground of the fourth-placed club as the teams go head-to-head to claim the 12thand final spot in Super League for the 2019 season.

As things currently stand, the high-pressure clash could be played at a range of global locations and as such a date and time that works for all possible eventualities has been agreed.

On the Million Pound Game, Rugby Football League chief executive Ralph Rimmer said: “There is the possibility that the Million Pound Game could be played in either England, France or Canada which goes to show how global the game of Rugby League is.

“With this in mind it was important that we made a decision with all stakeholders involved to find a date and time that worked for all the clubs in The Qualifiers as well as all our broadcast partners around the world.”

As The Qualifiers table currently stands, Toronto Wolfpack would host French side Toulouse Olympique at their Lamport Stadium home in Canada.

But with it set to come right down to the wire, the Million Pound Game could even be staged in London or in the traditional rugby league heartlands.
