Robert Elstone | “The 2019 season will mark a change of direction for Super League.”

Yesterday the 2019 Betfred Super League fixtures were confirmed, and Salford Red Devils will start the season away at Huddersfield Giants before hosting newly promoted London Broncos.

The Chief Executive of Super League Europe, Robert Elstone, is excited to see a new chapter in the competition’s history begin.

Elstone said: “The 2019 season will mark a change of direction for the Super League, and the start of exciting new beginnings.

“We want our fans to be really excited about that first weekend, and how better to do that than with a Saints-Wigan derby, pitting the champions against their local rivals who were also last year’s League Leaders? And then to follow it up with a Hull derby?

“We’re equally excited about the extra Saturday games which our broadcast partners at Sky Sports are showing in the early stages of the season, allowing the drama of the opening round of matches to unfold throughout the weekend.

“Throw in the World Club Challenge between Wigan Warriors and the Sydney Roosters, the unique appeal and challenge of Super League’s Easter weekend – and of course the season builds to a real climax with the battle for places in the Top Five Play-Offs, building to the Betfred Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford.”
