Rounds 6,7 and 8 of the 2021 Betfred Super League schedule have seen changes as a number of Super League clubs have decided to bring their round 6 games forward to Monday 17 May – the date that fans are expected to be allowed back into stadiums.
Salford Red Devils’ away clash with St. Helens will now be contested on Monday 17 May, 7:45pm kick-off, with Wigan Warriors later the same week in Round 7 on Saturday 22 May, which will kick-off at 1.00pm.
Marshall’s men will then face off against Warrington Wolves in Round 8 of the Betfred Super League on Thursday 27 May, kick-off at 7:45pm live on Sky Sports.
If the government’s roadmap goes to plan, Salford’s game against Saints could be one of the first sporting events to welcome fans back this year.
Ken Davy, Super League’s interim executive chairman, said: “We can’t wait to see our passionate fans back in grounds cheering their team on.
“We’ve waited a long time and that day cannot come soon enough, we will be another step closer to some kind of normality. We’re grateful for Sky Sports’ continued support and flexibility.”
