WARRINGTON Wolves will travel to Perpignan to face Catalans Dragons on Monday October 26, the French club have revealed.
The Super League season restarts this weekend with a double-header at Headingley, with the Wolves’ first game back against Hull KR at the same venue on Saturday week (6.30pm kick-off)
All games for the first month of the restart are due to be held at neutral venues behind closed doors, but there is hope that crowds will be able to return as early as September, with a number of pilot events with small crowds being held across a variety of sports.
There are no such restrictions in France, which has enabled Catalans to be the first Super League club to confirm a return in front of fans.
Warrington will travel to the south of France in late October, for a 7.15pm kick-off. Only one of the Dragons’ home games is on a Saturday, with the lopsided schedule seeing teams play eight matches in six weeks.
The Wolves don’t have the best record against the Dragons in recent times, losing three of the last four meetings – including the 2018 Challenge Cup final.
They lost on both visits to Perpignan last year, going down 30-10 and 23-22, with that match marred by fighting on the pitch and in the stands.
The two sides are due to meet before the clash in France, with Catalans scheduled to visit Warrington on Friday 25 September in the revised Super League fixture list.
