Red Star Belgrade’s historic first round Challenge Cup game against Millom will be streamed live via the BBC Sport website.

Taking place at Coronation Field on Sunday January 27 (1.30pm), it features the oldest amateur rugby league club in the world, with Millom having been formed in 1873.

In 2018, Millom defeated Strathmore Silverbacks and Bradford Dudley Hill to reach Round 3 of the competition, where they came head to head with NCL side Pilkington Recs.

Showcasing the game from grass roots level upwards, streamed games featuring the likes of York City Knights v Catalans Dragons and Rochdale Mayfield v Crosfields attracted over 92,000 viewers last year.

BBC Sport and the Rugby Football League will live stream one game from each of the first five rounds of the 2019 Challenge Cup. When the competition reaches the sixth round and beyond, matches will be screened on BBC1 and BBC2 over each weekend.

Tickets for the 2019  Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, August 25 can be purchased by calling the Rugby League Ticket Office on 0844 856 1113 or by visiting
