Solly confirms Four Nations game will be in London

Super League General Manager Blake Solly has confirmed that the 2016 Four Nations will have a game taking place in London.

The fixtures and locations for the series have not been revealed yet, but in an interview with BBC Radio Merseyside, Solly said that there will be a game in the capital this year alongside the Challenge Cup final.

“We’ve targeted taking three good rugby league events to London and the south east every year for the next three years,” he said.

“Next year we will have the Challenge Cup final and we’ll have a Four Nations game with England in it down there.”

Solly also said he would like to see more games taking place in London over the coming years, adding that there’s a market and an appetite for the game in the south of the country.

“We’ve realised that we’ve got some great showpieces to take to London,” Solly said.

“We know there’s a market in London and the south east for big rugby league events but we’ve got to serve them up.”
