The new Betfred Super League fixture schedule has been announced, ahead of the 2020 season resumption, which will see 21 live games on Sky Sports from August 2.
Salford Red Devils will make their return to action on Sunday 9 August, when they face Hull FC at Emerald Headingley Stadium.
The triple headers played over two days at Emerald Headingley Stadium and the Totally Wicked Stadium will ensure greater control over the safety and well-being of our players, staff and match officials.
Given the exceptional and demanding financial climate, the opportunity to play in front of home crowds has been ‘front of mind’ in the fixture scheduling. As a result, from Round 14, the schedule gets busier across the final two months of the 2020 season.
The significance of home crowds to clubs and fans also means that dates and venues in the back end of the campaign will be reviewed as the season progresses, in line with government advice and in discussion with our host broadcaster, Sky Sports.
The play-offs – comprising four teams – are scheduled for mid/late-November, while the Grand Final will take place at the end of November.
Testing is now fully up and running and all Super League clubs will be back in training by the end of next week.
There are two significant, well-documented changes that teams will be preparing for – the ‘six-again’ rule will be brought into Super League and matches will be played without scrums, the game being restarted with a tap.
Salford Red Devils season ticket holders, sponsors and all other supporters will be updated on when they will be able to attend matches, once this information is available.
