Bolton confirmed for historic triple header

This summer’s historic triple header featuring the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup final and both semi-finals of the Coral Challenge Cup will go ahead as planned at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday 27 July.

The Rugby Football League has received assurances from the administrator currently overseeing the football club’s affairs, and tickets will go on sale next week via both the RFL and the four clubs who qualify for the Coral Challenge Cup semi-finals.

Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:

“Staging the semi-finals as a double-header was a major success for the game last season with great games played live on the BBC and in front of a sold out crowd at Bolton. Adding the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup final to create a triple header should make this an even more attractive occasion for all Rugby League supporters, as well as fans of the six teams involved.

“Bolton was an excellent venue in 2018 which was why we wanted to return to the stadium this year. Since the club went into administration we have had a number of conversations with the administrators now running the club and the stadium in Bolton and we are delighted that they have given us the assurances we needed to be able to continue with staging the event there.

“We hope all supporters get behind the triple header and help to create another fantastic sold out event.”

The draw for the Coral Challenge Cup semi-finals will be made live on BBC TV this Sunday after the Bradford Bulls versus Halifax RLFC quarter-final.

Other quarter-final ties are Hull FC v Catalans Dragons (Thursday 30 May, 7.35pm), Hull KR v Warrington Wolves (Friday 31 May, 7.35pm) and St Helens v Wakefield Trinity (Saturday 1 June, 3.15pm).

Also on Sunday Jon Dutton, chief executive of Rugby League World Cup 2021 and Lindsay Impett, event director of Vitality Netball World Cup 2019, will be making the draw for the quarter-finals of the Coral Women’s Challenge Cup.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
