Salford and St Helens to host Challenge Cup quarter-final double headers

The RFL has confirmed that Salford and St Helens will host the Challenge Cup quarter-finals behind closed doors.

The quarter-finals will be split into two double headers later this month, with all four matches being broadcast live.

The BBC’s selected ties – Warrington v St Helens and Castleford or Hull FC v Wigan – will be played at Salford’s AJ Bell Stadium on Saturday, September 19.

That follows a Friday night double header at the Totally Wicked Stadium in St Helens on September 18, with all action shown live by Sky Sports – Catalans v Salford followed by Leeds against Hull KR.

The Totally Wicked Stadium will also host the Castleford-Hull sixth round tie on Sunday, September 13 – which will be shown live on BBC1, with a 3pm kick-off.


As with all Super League fixtures since the resumption of the 2020 season in August, all five of the above matches will be played behind closed doors because of Government restrictions.
