WARRINGTON Wolves will face Castleford Tigers to kick-off their 2021 Super League campaign, at Headingley on Sunday March 28.
All six of the opening round fixtures will take place at the home of Leeds Rhinos, behind closed doors, but all live on Sky Sports.
Steve Price’s men will face Castleford in the sixth game of the weekend, with kick-off at 2.45pm.
Club season ticket holders will be able to watch the games for free via the Our League app.
Meanwhile, this year’s Magic Weekend will take place on September 4/5 at St James’ Park Newcastle.
The full 2021 Super League fixture list is set to be released on February 26.
The format of the season has changed due to the late start, with teams scheduled to play 25 rounds – rather than the usual 27.
The Grand Final will take place at Old Trafford on Saturday October 9, with St Helens looking to defend their back-to-back Super League crowns.
Rhodri Jones, Super League chief commercial officer said: “With the start of the season a little over a month away, Super League would like to thank all our clubs, Sky Sports, our partners and the RFL for their tireless work in helping us make these announcements today.
“We look forward to continuing to work together throughout the 2021 season to deliver what promises to be another fantastic season.”
“Confirmation that Dacia Magic Weekend remains an important part of the 2021 season shows our commitment to the event and thanks must go to Newcastle United in supporting us to achieve this.
“Whilst it is frustrating for all involved to not be welcoming fans back into our stadiums for the start of the season, we are hopeful that as the situation in the country continues to improve and the vaccine rollout nears completion, we will be seeing fans enjoying live sport again soon.
“We will continue to work with all of our stakeholders to ensure that we are ready to deliver the return of fans in a safe and secure way.”
Champions St Helens will open the season against Salford on Friday March 26 (6pm), before newcomers Leigh take on local rivals Wigan (8.15pm).
On Saturday March 27, Wakefield face Leeds (3pm) and Catalans take on Hull KR (5.15pm); and immediately prior to the Wolves game, Hull take on Huddersfield (12.30pm).
