Toronto Wolfpack have confirmed they will play the rest of the 2020 season in the UK.
The Wolfpack had not played at their Lamport Stadium home in Canada before the Super League season was suspended back in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Super League has released its fixtures for when the competition restarts on August 2 – and Brian McDermott’s side will play the rest of their games in the UK in 2020, before returning to Canada in 2021.
In a statement released by the Wolfpack, it read: “Regrettably for the Wolfpack the challenges around travel, international border protocols and the hosting of public events in Toronto have proved too signifcant for the team to be able to host games at Lamport Stadium this season.
“This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, and we vow to return to Toronto bigger and better than ever before in 2021.
“We thank those fans who have already reached out with overwhelming messages of support, as well as our members who have already inquired about rolling over their memberships to the 2021 season.
“We take great comfort from knowing our fans in Canada will continue to be a part of our incredible journey, and look forward to seeing you all in Toronto for our 2021 Super League season.”
The Wolfpack have confirmed that all single-game tickets purchased for their home games in 2020 will be refunded by Ticketmaster within 28 days.
They are also contacting all of their 2020 Season Members, giving them the option to roll over their membership or alternatively claim a full refund.
