Rugby League fans will be heading to the Macron Stadium in Bolton for the Challenge Cup semi-finals.

For the first time in the competition’s history both finals will be played at the same venue on the same day in front of 30,000 fans at the stadium.
Tickets for the day will go on sale on Wednesday 6 June at 10am.

After the success of the Super League Magic Weekend, it is no surprise tournament organisers want to play both semi-finals on the same day – while those who do not get tickets can enjoy a five-hour BBC broadcast showing both games.

Warrington Wolves will face Leeds Rhinos in one semi-final while St Helens will play Catalan Dragons in the other. The two winners will face off in the final for a chance to lift the trophy.

Challenge Cup semi-final tickets

Tickets for the semi-final double-header go on sale on Wednesday 6 June at 10am and prices will start from £25 for adults and £12.50 for juniors here.

Season ticket holders will be able to get a £4 discount if they buy directly from the clubs.

The Rugby League says over 70% of tickets will be available in the cheapest category, meaning an affordable day for many fans who are heading to Bolton.

The first semi-final starts at 12.30pm and the second kicks off at 2.45pm on the day.

Rugby Football League interim Chief Executive, Ralph Rimmer, said: “The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup is one of the most prestigious competitions in sport and the introduction of a semi-finals double header is a fantastic opportunity to showcase two of the biggest games of the year at one event. Fans rarely get the chance to watch two games on one day that have so much riding on them and I am sure that everyone attending will have a fantastic time.

The final will take place at Wembley Stadium on 25 August.
