Game day timetable ... past and present


Recommended Posts

Curious to know what the game day timetable has been in the past (say up to the mid 90's) for the different divisions and is now in the Super League era ?

Have been to a couple of SL games when visiting England plus saw London Skolars v Toulouse the night before the 2016 Challenge Cup but don't recall any earlier games being played.

For instance, nowadays are Academy games played on the same day / ground as first grade fixtures ?

With Academy games whether or not they act as curtain raisers varies from club to club, some clubs like Wigan are unable to use the same stadium as the first team for Academy games, others choose to play at a different site for junior teams. Our Academy and women's RL teams play at Robin Park Arena which is next door to the DW but tend to be on a different day to the men's first team games. The Academy GF has to be played at the senior team's stadium so when we reach and play host to that it tends to be played as a curtain raiser but not at other times.

SL and Academy fixture lists don't always sync up either so sometimes one team is at home with the other away in any given week.
