Kick off confirmed for Carnegie World Club Challenge

The Rugby Football League have confirmed that the kick off for the Carnegie World Club Challenge between Leeds Rhinos and Melbourne Storm at Elland Road on Sunday 28th February will be 6.30pm.

Final arrangements are now being put in place for the ticket sales for the game and we hope to announce more details in the coming weeks. Tickets will certainly be on sale before Christmas to allow fans to buy tickets to this must see event as gifts for loved ones.

The game is a repeat of the 2008 epic between the same two sides at Elland Road. That match was described as one of the toughest games ever as both sides battled the elements and each other to claim the World title. Over 800 tackles were made in the game which Leeds won 11-4.
