Widnes to host Women’s Rugby League Grand Final

The RFL have confirmed that the Women’s Rugby League Grand Final for 2016 will be staged at the Select Security Stadium in Widnes.

The game will be played on Sunday October 1, and will be preceded by the Group 2 Grand Final, which will kick off at 1pm.

The main event, the Group 1 Grand Final, kicks off at 3pm.

Competition Manager James Shuttleworth believes that a great day is in the offing for fans.

“Going back to Widnes allows us to take Women’s Rugby League to another established audience,” he said.

“This year, the Women’s Challenge Cup & Shield Finals Day was brilliantly hosted by Bradford Bulls, the County Cup Finals were in Leigh and York respectively and we’re returning to Yorkshire for County Origin at Stanningley in Leeds.

“We’re taking our key events to areas where the women’s game is strongest and we hope plenty of fans join us. It’s a fantastic and well-established annual event that always produces high drama.”
