FANS who travel to away games need to know the following new information regarding our Betfred Championship matches at Toulouse Olympique, Whitehaven and Sheffield Eagles.
Toulouse away: Saturday, February 8: Kick-off is now 6pm at Stade Ernest-Wallon, home of rugby union club Stade Toulousain. The stadium was built in the late 1980s and recently renovated. Capacity 19,500. France have played both England and New Zealand there, as have Catalans Dragons who played Hull KR at Ernest-Wallon in front of a capacity crowd in 2013.
Whitehaven away: Sunday, February 16: Kick-off is now 6.15pm for purposes of live streaming by OuRLeague. If you haven’t yet joined OuRLeague (it’s free) do so now and you’ll be able to watch the Whitehaven-Oldham game in the comfort of your favourite armchair, while simultaneously helping Oldham RLFC by joining OuRLeague.
Sheffield Eagles away: Wednesday, April 15, kick-off 7.45pm: Sheffield’s new home at the Olympic Legacy Park won’t be ready by then, so the Eagles first three Championship home games, including the Oldham game, will be played in Doncaster at the Castle Park home of Doncaster Knights RUFC. It has a capacity of 5,000 with 1,650 seats in the De Mulder-Lloyd Stand, along with other first-class facilities for spectators and players alike.
In each case this information will be repeated in the days leading up to the game.
