Super League Magic Weekend 2021 fixtures confirmed

The fixtures for the 2021 Magic Weekend, to be held at Newcastle’s St James’ Park on September 4/5, have been revealed.

They are loosely based on finishing positions from last season.

Champions St Helens will take on Catalans in the middle game on Saturday September 4, followed by Leeds taking on Hull.

Castleford and Salford kick-start the weekend, with kick-off times still to be confirmed.

On Sunday, Huddersfield take on Wakefield and Leigh play Hull KR, either side of a Wigan v Warrington clash.

All teams will play on the same day they were scheduled to play in the 2020 event, with Leigh replacing Toronto.

Super League chief commercial officer, Rhodri Jones said: “Dacia Magic Weekend is an important part of the Betfred Super League calendar and it is great to have the event back in our plans for the upcoming 2021 season.

“Following the Prime Minister’s latest update about the easing of lockdown restrictions, we are optimistic that we will be able to welcome fans into St James’ Park to enjoy the festival atmosphere that makes Dacia Magic Weekend so special.

“With the event falling later in the calendar this year, it could be all to play for in the closing stages of the season with teams chasing the League Leaders shield, play-off spots or looking to avoid relegation.

“I’d like to pay thanks to Dacia for their on-going support of this event as well as our event partners at Newcastle United, Newcastle City Council, Newcastle-Gateshead Initiative and NE1, and once again to Sky Sports for continuing to bring fans their excellent coverage of this unique event.”
