Super League has confirmed the full fixture list for the regular season, along with plans for fans to start returning to stadiums from the end of May.

Details for the first two rounds, both of which see all six matches being shown live on Sky Sports, had already been announced, as had the matches for both days of Magic Weekend at Newcastle’s St James’ Park in September.

A Rivals Round in lieu of the traditional Easter weekend derbies to be held during Round 20 on the weekend of August 19 to 22 was announced on Thursday, with Super League now confirming the full slate of fixtures from Round 3 onwards.

Sky Sports to launch pop-up RL channel for new season

Sky Sports will be launching a pop-up channel dedicated to rugby league ahead of the Super League season.

As previously announced, the regular season will feature 25 rounds of matches starting on Friday, March 26 and ending on the weekend of September 16 to 19.

These will be followed by the play-offs, which get underway on September 23 and will again feature the teams which finish in the top six, with the Grand Final at Old Trafford scheduled for Saturday, October 9.

Following the recent update from the government on the roadmap out of Covid-19 restrictions, clubs are planning for the return of fans to stadiums for the first time since March last year in time for the Round 7 fixtures on the weekend of May 20 to 23.

“The first round is just a month away now and it promises to be a fantastic season with some great fixtures in store, and most of all we look forward to welcoming fans back into stadiums,” Super League’s chief commercial officer Rhodri Jones said.

“Our clubs have been busy recruiting in the off-season and I am sure I’m not alone in saying that I can’t wait to see our amazing athletes back in action alongside these fantastic new signings, including Greg Inglis, Josh Reynolds, Korbin Sims and of course, the return of John Bateman to Wigan Warriors.

“I would like to thank the clubs, the RFL and Sky Sports for their input, understanding and patience, enabling us to produce a compelling fixture list.”

Kick-off times and Sky Sports picks for live broadcast from Round 3 onwards will be announced in due course.
