Curtain falls on historic anniversary for Emerald Headingley
Wigan Warriors lifted the Betfred Super League League Leaders Shield at Emerald Headingley to bring down the curtain on an incredible year at the stadium in the 130th year since the opening of the Rhinos famous home in 1890.
The Wigan v Huddersfield game was the 25th game of the year at Emerald Headingley. In a remarkable year, the stadium has hosted seven double headers including the opening day of the season in an event that gave a glimpse into the future as the Rhinos took on Hull FC and Toronto Wolfpack played Castleford.
The Wolfpack played twice at Emerald Headingley during their brief period in Super League whilst the stadium also hosted a triple header on 9th August as part of five games in 48 hours.
The make the season even more remarkable, the Rhinos have actually played two away games at Emerald Headingley this season against Huddersfield and Hull FC.
A great deal of incredible hard work has gone on behind the scenes at Emerald Headingley to make all these games possible especially during the Behind Closed Doors period with special praise for our stadium operations team and ground staff who have made our home Covid secure and a fitting venue to host the biggest games in our sport.
