A slice of rugby league history awaits this afternoon with the first ever rugby league matches, including the Challenge Cup Final, at Tottenham Hotspur’s state-of-the-art 62,850 capacity stadium.

In 2021 Castleford Tigers and St Helens went head-to-head at Wembley Stadium (where the Challenge Cup Final will return to in 2023) and it was St Helens who came out on top; a 26-12 victory giving Saints a 13th victory in the competition.ย ย 

This year’s first round action started back in January with the British Army and Royal Navy among the first round winners.ย  Championship clubs joined the competition at the fourth round stage with the Super League sides entering the fray in the sixth round at the end of March.ย  With the quarter-finals and semi-finals scheduled for early April and May respectively, a total of eight rounds of matches are required to decide who will take to the Tottenham Hotspur turf this afternoon.ย ย 

Meeting in this afternoon’s final are Huddersfield and Wigan Warriors who saw off Hull KR and St Helens respectively at the semi-final stage.ย  Wigan raced to a 14-0 lead at half-time in their match, only for St Helens to roar back and take the lead before Liam Marshall sealed a win for Warriors with a brilliant late try.ย  Huddersfield swept aside Hull KR in their last four encounter, Jermaine McGillvary starring with a superb performance in a comprehensive 25-4 win.ย 

The Challenge Cup Final is a 3pm kick-off.ย  Before that the 1895 Cup takes centre stage at midday.ย  First introduced in 2019, the 1895 Cup is a knockout competition for sides outside of Super League.ย 

Be there as rugby league moves to an exciting new home for 2022 to celebrate a showpiece event in the calendar.ย 

๐Ÿ‰ Kick-off for the AB Sundekcs 1895 Cup Final is at 12 noon.

๐Ÿ‰ Kick-off for the Challenge Cup Final is at 3pm.

๐ŸŽŸ๏ธ Tickets are currently off-sale.ย
