Early Bird offers for earlier 2020 Wembley date

Tickets go on sale today for the 2020 Coral Challenge Cup Final day including the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final – which will break new ground for Rugby League at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, by being played in July.

The game’s traditional showpiece occasion in London is moving forward by more than a month next summer and will be staged on Saturday 18 July.

To mark the earlier date, the Rugby Football League are launching a special Early Bird ticket offer – with 25% off all seats, meaning tickets now start from only £15 for adults, and £3.75 for under-16s.

The RFL has introduced a new and improved ticketing site since the 2019 Coral Challenge Cup Final – eticketing.co.uk/rugbyleague – and all customers will need to set up a new account to take advantage of the Early Bird prices.

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

“It’s an earlier date for Wembley in 2020, and it’s great to be able to offer these Early Bird prices to our loyal supporters who buy their tickets early every year – as well as to attract some new ones.

“The offer will apply for a limited number of tickets, so we’d advise supporters to move quickly before they sell out.

“The sport of Rugby League will be celebrating its 125th birthday in 2020 – and what better way to do that than by packing out Wembley Stadium for one of the great days in the British sporting calendar?

“It’s another huge summer of sport with the Euros and the Olympics, and the July date gives Rugby League a great chance to be part of that. It’s during term time, before the school holidays, and we’ve already started making plans to make the most of these new opportunities.”

Invitations will be sent out this week to community clubs to participate in the First Round of the Coral Challenge Cup which will be brought forward to mid-January, with further details of the First Round draw to follow soon.

Full details of all the dates for the Coral Challenge Cup and AB Sundecks 1895 Cup in 2020 will be published with the Betfred Super League, Championship and League 1 fixture lists next month.

Club Cash

SINCE Covid-19 caused us to temporarily abandon door-to-door CLUB CASH lottery collections last Spring there’s never been a better time to come on board and help Roughyeds to get through these hugely challenging times.

Why? The £500-a-week rollover jackpot is back — not only that there are now TWO £50 prizes and TWO £25 prizes in addition to the first prize of £1,000, a second prize of £100 and ten consolation prizes of £10.

But the return of the jackpot is the big lottery news. It’s back this week and it’s been won first time out, so next week’s jackpot is again £500 but if nobody touches lucky it will go up to £1,000 the following week and increase by £500 a week, if not won, to a maximum of £10,000.

We have seriously missed the regular income from collections on the doorstep, but we cannot thank too much those supporters who have got behind the club in these unprecedented times of hardship by keeping their Club Cash memberships going or, indeed, by joining for the first time, knowing that for £1 a week they can help the club to combat Covid and prepare with confidence for the challenges of Betfred Championship rugby in 2021.

You can send a cheque to cover a set number of weeks; take out a bank standing order — our preferred option; complete a bank transfer; or pay for several weeks up front by credit or debit card.

You can download a standing order form by clicking on the link at the end of this news release and following the instructions or you can contact our Club Cash administrator John McAndrew (tel: 07980 129541; email: mcandrewj@aol.com) or speak to the club direct on 07904 898177 or email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

The easiest way, though, is to download a standing order form below. The latest prize updates are shown on the form as follows (all for £1): £1,000, £100, £50 (2), £25 (2), a number of £10 consolation prizes and the £500-a-week rollover jackpot.

Best of luck!
