Details of the 2022 Magic Weekend have today been confirmed with Wigan Warriors set to face St Helens at St James’ Park, Newcastle on Saturday 9th July (4:45pm K.O.).


A fantastic weekend of Betfred Super League action awaits fans in Newcastle and for the first time ever Magic Weekend will be played in the middle of summer with the event taking place on 9th and 10th July.

The event will be hosted by Newcastle United for the sixth time, having first been held in the North-East in 2015.

Saturday kicks-off with newly promoted Toulouse Olympique facing Wakefield Trinity before Wigan take on local rivals Saints in The Derby. The first day finishes with a West Yorkshire derby as Leeds Rhinos go up against Castleford Tigers.

Sunday opens with Huddersfield Giants and Salford Red Devils before last season’s League Leaders Catalans Dragons play Warrington Wolves. The final game of the weekend sees Hull FC take on Hull KR.

Super League Chief Commercial Officer, Rhodri Jones, said: “It was great to be back in Newcastle in 2021, and even more so with fans back in the stadium. We are delighted to be returning to St James’ Park in 2022 and I must thank the football club, Newcastle City Council and NE1 for showing us so much support.

“I look forward to seeing the stadium, fan zone and city brimming with Rugby League fans again next year.”

Fixture format 

Magic Weekend fixtures have been kept to the same format used in previous years, where teams are matched based on the position they finished in the league the previous season.

The formula used for deciding fixtures is 1st v 3rd, 2nd v 4th, 5th v 7th, 6th v 8th, 9th v 11th and 10th v 12th.
