Grand Final at the KCOM Stadium

BETFRED Super League’s 2020 Grand Final will be played at the KCOM Stadium in Hull on Friday, November 27 with an 8pm kick-off.

The decision to move the Grand Final away from Old Trafford for the first time is due to Manchester United’s congested fixture schedule at the end of November.

Super League executive chairman Robet Elstone said:

“It’s unfortunate that the Covid-affected fixture schedules of both United and Super League mean that, despite our best efforts, we had to find an alternative to the only home the Super League Grand Final has ever known.

“After full consideration of a number of options we are delighted to confirm that we will be taking the 2020 Betfred Super League Grand Final to the KCOM Stadium in Hull, a city and a stadium with a proud rugby league history and very worthy of hosting the Game’s showpiece event.

“We will miss Old Trafford. Most of all, we will miss the nerve-jangling atmosphere created by 70,000 fans.

“The absence of supporters will bring into focus the challenges and, all too often, the tragedies of a year we are all anxious to put behind us.

“For the first time in our history the Super League season will reach its thrilling conclusion on a Friday night.

“We are excited about the new kick-off time. Friday nights have always featured significantly in the rugby league calendar.

“We set the bar high last year with a record television audience and we are confident that the 2020 Super League Grand Final at the KCOM will build on that success, writing another exciting chapter in the Grand Final’s proud and compelling history.”


Club Cash Lottery

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

he 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!
