Rounds 3 -5 confirmed for Betfred Super League
Betfred Super League has announced the fixtures scheduled to be played in rounds 3, 4 and 5 of the 2021 season.
Round 3, which kicks off with a mouth-watering clash between Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors, will see clubs returning to play at their home grounds, some for the first time in over twelve months.
Round 5 will include Leigh Centurions first competitive home game since March 2020 and their first Super League game at Leigh Sports Village since 2017, when they host reigning Betfred Super League champions, St Helens.
Sky Sports will broadcast six games over the three rounds announced today, seeing Super League return to its regular Thursday and Friday night slot.
All games, televised and non-televised will continue to be streamed for Leeds Rhinos season and flexi members via Our League whilst games remain behind closed doors. New codes will be emailed to season and flexi members before the start of the new season to allow them to watch all games on Our League whether the match is on Sky Sports or not.
The selection of 6pm kick-offs for non-Sky selected games on Thursdays and Friday, gives certain season ticket holders a great opportunity to watch back-to-back Betfred Super League games on Our League and Sky Sports.
Rhodri Jones, Super League chief commercial officer, said: “We are delighted to be able confirm the next three rounds of fixtures and thank our clubs and broadcaster partner, Sky Sports for working with us to achieve this.”
“Clubs returning to their home grounds marks a significant step on the road back to normality and the scheduled return of partial crowds in May.”
