There are just under two weeks to go until the Dacia Magic Weekend returns to St James’s Park in Newcastle and this year, Magic means more.

Coming at round 23 of 25 in the Betfred Super League, Magic Weekend will host a number of fixtures which could decide the Play-Offs and see a team win the League Leaders Shield. Plus, after a difficult 18 months, this will be the first time the whole Super League family has been back together as one!

Fans who haven’t booked their tickets yet – don’t need to panic – there is still time! Tickets are still available at incredible value, starting from just £12.50 for day tickets and from £20 for weekend tickets. Rhinos Members receive 50% discount on these prices too. Book online at or call the Ticket Office on 0371 423 1315 (Current opening hours are Monday to Friday, 10:30am to 3:30pm, excluding Bank Holidays) 

As well as watching the Rhinos in action, fans can also take advantage of The Fan Zone located on Strawberry Place, offering food, beverages, and activities delivered by official partners Dacia, Northern and Batchelors Mushy Peas throughout the weekend. Metro Radio will be hosting the fan zone, keeping the party going with live music and special guest interviews from the stage at the heart of the activity.

Visit for a chance to have photos with the Betfred Super League and Rugby League World Cup trophy, purchase official Dacia Magic Weekend merchandise and win some exclusive Super League prizes with our official partners. The Fan Zone will be open on Saturday 1pm – 7.30pm and Sunday 12pm – 5.30pm.
