Super League at the Etihad Stadium over Magic Weekend
Date Posted: 04/05/12
The Stobart Super League Magic Weekend will see the biggest teams in rugby league battle it out over seven fixtures at Manchester City FC's Etihad Stadium this month.
Rugby fans should book Manchester hotels for Saturday, May 26th and Sunday, May 27th to see an array of exciting local rivalries.
Stand-out fixtures include Bradford Bulls v Leeds Rhinos on Sunday at 16:00 BST and St Helens v Wigan Warriors immediately afterwards at 18:00 BST, which is a repeat of the 2010 Super League Grand Final.
Wigan Warriors trail just behind Huddersfield Giants in the Super League table, who lead with 20 points.
"The Magic Weekend is sport as it should be, a wealth of intense and, in many cases, historic rivalries played out in a fantastic venue," said Super League chief executive Nigel Wood.
"There are some fantastic matches in store and I’m sure we are going to see some bumper crowds at the Etihad Stadium as Super League builds on the success of Magic Weekends at Murrayfield and Millennium Stadium."
Tickets for the Magic Weekend begin at £45 for adults and £22.50 for concessions.
