WARRINGTON Wolves will kick start the 2018 season with a tough home opener against Betfred Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.
The 2017 Grand Final winners will be hoping to start the defence of their title with an away win, whilst new Warrington Wolves Head Coach Steve Price will be eager to impress the home crowd when taking charge of his first ever Super League game.
Meanwhile Round Two of the competition will see Wigan Warriors and Hull FC take Super League on the road to Australia for the first ever time, when they will play at the WIN Stadium in Wollongong, Sydney.
Commenting on the season ahead, Rugby Football League Chief Commercial Officer and Super League Executive Director, Roger Draper, said: “2017 was a fantastic season with some of the most exciting action on the pitch I’ve ever seen. Super League also had an incredibly successful year off the field with commercial revenue up by 19% and more than 1.75 million tickets sold to Super League fixtures throughout the year, culminating in a brilliant sell-out Betfred Super League Grand Final.
“We believe that next season promises to be one of the most exciting ever, with plenty for Rugby League supporters to look forward to. The Dacia Magic Weekend returns to Newcastle for the fourth consecutive year, we have a first ever Super League game in Australia and we welcome back Hull Kingston Rovers to the competition following their promotion from the Championship.
“We also have the new free Our League membership, which has attracted more than 25,000 members in the first two weeks since its launch. It will give fans exclusive news, offers, insight and stats from all Super League games and we hope they enjoy the additional benefits that the membership brings.”
Sky Sports will continue to show two games a week and following feedback from supporters, media and clubs, there will now be an earlier kick-off time of 7.45pm for all televised Thursday and Friday night matches.
