  2. Rugby League will return to Anfield Stadium for the second time in six months next May when the Dacia Magic Weekend hits Merseyside. Liverpool FC’s iconic stadium provided the perfect setting for England’s memorable Second Test win against New Zealand last week, and now all 12 Betfred Super League clubs can relish the prospect of playing in front of The Kop after today’s meeting of the Super League board ratified the move. Super League broke new ground in 2007 when the Magic Weekend was established, with a regular round of fixtures taken to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. Since then it has also been staged at Murrayfield, Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium, and for the last four years St James’s Park in Newcastle – and the concept has now been adopted in the Southern Hemisphere by the National Rugby League, who will stage a full round of matches at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium next May. The 2018 Dacia Magic Weekend attracted an aggregate attendance of more than 64,000, and as ever the players relished the top of the ground conditions with a feast of tries, and an average of more than 50 points scored in each of the six games. The fixtures at the 2019 Dacia Magic Weekend will include a repeat of the 2018 Betfred Super League Grand Final, with champions Wigan Warriors facing Warrington Wolves in the last of the three games on Saturday May 25 (1900 kick-off) – giving the Wolves the opportunity to take revenge not only for their defeat at Old Trafford last month, but also for the 38-10 drubbing inflicted by Wigan in Newcastle last May. The Anfield programme has been determined by ranking position from the 2018 season, meaning that the other two teams who earned places in the top four – St Helens and Castleford Tigers – will clash in another mouth-watering fixture to round off the weekend on Sunday May 26 (1800). Wakefield Trinity and Catalans Dragons will share the honour of playing the first Dacia Magic Weekend fixture at Anfield Stadium at 1400 on the Saturday, and their match will be followed by Hull FC versus Huddersfield Giants at 1630 – before Wigan and Warrington take centre stage. The Sunday programme begins with Salford Red Devils facing Hull Kingston Rovers (1300), while London Broncos have been handed a match against fellow 2018 Qualifiers, Leeds Rhinos (1530), in our first Magic Weekend appearance since 2014. All six matches will be shown live on Sky Sports, as part of their extensive, exclusive live coverage of the Betfred Super League. Robert Elstone, the Super League chief executive, said: “On behalf of the Super League clubs, we’re delighted to be taking the Dacia Magic Weekend to one of the most famous stadiums in the world. “Anfield and Liverpool Football Club have embraced our sport – throughout all our discussions on the Magic Weekend, they made it very clear to us that they wanted that relationship to continue. The game should be proud that Anfield has become a rugby league venue. “I would also like to thank Mayor Joe Anderson for his support for what will be a great weekend for Super League and the City of Liverpool. I had the privilege of working in the city for more than a decade and I know Super League fans will have a great time not only at Anfield but in one of our country’s most vibrant and exciting cities. The place is special – it’s a perfect fit for the celebratory atmosphere of Magic. “I’d also like to thank the City of Newcastle and Newcastle United for hosting the Magic Weekend so well over the past four seasons. They’ve created so many great memories for Super League and our fans, and have set the bar very high for Liverpool. Newcastle has inked its place into Super League history.” Tickets for the 2019 Dacia Magic Weekend will go on sale on Monday 19 November 2018 via rugby-league.com and the Super League clubs. 2019 Dacia Magic Weekend fixtures in full Saturday May 25 1400 – Wakefield Trinity v Catalans Dragons 1630 – Hull FC v Huddersfield Giants 1900 – Wigan Warriors v Warrington Wolves Sunday May 26 1300 – Salford Red Devils v Hull Kingston Rovers 1530 – Leeds Rhinos v London Broncos 1800 – St Helens v Castleford Tigers View the full article

    Cyber Radio join the Broncos team

    London Broncos are delighted to announce a brand new partnership with Cyber Radio. The partnership, which will see Cyber Radio on the new shirts, will give London Broncos a mouthpiece, through radio advertising, throughout the areas covered by the expanding DAB stations. Cyber Radio are the fastest growing DAB radio chain in the UK with 3 stations CYBER HITS/CYBER ROCK/CYBER GOLD on DAB in London/Surrey/West Kent and East Berkshire. They are also on DAB in Brighton/Glasgow/Norwich/Cambridge and Bristol and soon in Birmingham and Manchester with a radio-player on-line and mobile platforms world wide. Their daily schedule sees 53 mins of music per hour with commercials at the top of the hour only and with only six to eight presenter breaks maximising the time given to companies to advertise. With DAB as the fastest growing radio listening in the UK, with London/Surrey having the highest amount of listeners on DAB with over 85% now listening to DAB radio in their cars, it will give the Broncos the opportunity to reach a far wider audience as they start their 2019 Super League campaign. Club CEO, Jason Loubser said, ” We are very excited about the new partnership with Cyber Radio. More and more people listen to radio whether at home or on the move and having the ability to reach those people through targeted advertising will only be a good thing for the club. The advertising will make more people aware of London Broncos and also help in attracting them to our matches when we kick our Super League campaign in February.” CEO Tatiana Safonova told us, ” We are delighted to tie up with the London Broncos as this follows on nicely with our Rugby Union sponsorship for the Varsity match and County Cricket T/Twenty sponsorships taking our portfolio across many sports.” “We see this as a great way of promoting our brand which covers all aspects of music from pop and dance to Rock and Sixties over our 3 stations in London and beyond and we look forward to working with the London Broncos promoting all their home matches on air via commercials and our presenters including competitions that fans of the club can benefit from.” View the full article

    Broncos back in the Super League

    London Broncos return to the Super League in 2019 with a home game which will see Wakefield Trinity visit Trailfinders on Sunday 3rd February with a 3pm Kick off. Fans will no doubt be anxious to see the schedule and the anticipation throughout the off season has been clearly palpable on all the club’s social media channels. The fixtures come thick and fast with the highlights being the games at Home against Castleford Tigers on Sky on Saturday February 23rd in Round 4 with another home game against the current Super League Champions, Wigan Warriors, in Round 5 again at Trailfinders on Sunday March 3rd at 3pm. St Helens come to town on July 21st at 3pm while two rounds earlier we welcome back former coach, Andrew Henderson, and Warrington Wolves on Saturday July 6th at 3pm. Easter sees the visit of Catalans Dragons to Ealing with a game on Thursday April 18th at 7.45pm before we make two trips, this season, to Perpignan on Saturday 15th June, on Sky & Saturday 17th August at 6pm also on Sky with the final home game of the season on Sunday 1st September against Leeds Rhinos at 3pm. The Dacia Magic Weekend will be played on the second Bank Holiday weekend in May (Round 16) with fixtures and the venue for the 2019 festival to be confirmed next week. Each team will play 29 fixtures – 14 at home and 14 away, plus the Magic round – meaning they play seven of the other 11 teams three times, and the other four twice. That fixture pattern has been determined by the teams’ finishing positions in 2018. Old Trafford will stage the 22nd Grand Final on Saturday October 12, the culmination of a return to the Top Five Play-Offs which produced the original Grand Final in 1998 – when Jason Robinson’s famous try set up Wigan’s 10-4 win against Leeds. That means the winners of the League Leaders’ Shield could take a direct passage to Old Trafford with victory in a single home match in the second round of the Play-Offs – whereas the team finishing fifth would have to win three away matches to make the Grand Final. Robert Elstone, the chief executive of Super League Europe, said: “The 2019 season will mark a change of direction for the Super League, and the start of exciting new beginnings. “We want our fans to be really excited about that first weekend, and how better to do that than with a Saints-Wigan derby, pitting the champions against their local rivals who were also last year’s League Leaders? And then to follow it up with a Hull derby? “We’re equally excited about the extra Saturday games which our broadcast partners at Sky Sports are showing in the early stages of the season, allowing the drama of the opening round of matches to unfold throughout the weekend. “Throw in the World Club Challenge between Wigan Warriors and the Sydney Roosters, the unique appeal and challenge of Super League’s Easter weekend – and of course the season builds to a real climax with the battle for places in the Top Five Play-Offs, building to the Betfred Super League Grand Final at Old Trafford.” Tickets for all London Broncos Home Games for 2019 will be available from the Club Website from Monday 12th November.
