50 Days Until Summer Bash

8 April 2016

Rugby League Returns To Blackpool

Rugby League returns to Blackpool in 50 days, as Bloomfield Road hosts the Summer Bash on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May.

For the second consecutive year, a full round of Kingstone Press Championship fixtures will take place over two action-packed days, as well as fan activities, fancy dress, great music and entertainment.

More than 15,000 fans flocked to Blackpool in May 2015 for the first ever Summer Bash to watch two days of spectacular Kingstone Press Championship action and an enthralling iPro Sport Cup final.

The iPro Sport Cup final will again kick-off proceedings on the Saturday, followed by two ambitious Championship clubs, Sheffield Eagles and London Broncos, going head-to-head. The Cumbrian derby between Workington Town and Whitehaven is always a feisty affair and the day’s action will be rounded off by a clash between 2015’s top two regular season Championship clubs, Bradford Bulls and Leigh Centurions.

The 2016 Summer Bash will once again be extensively covered on Sky Sports and Sunday will see three derby clashes, including a match between newly promoted Oldham and Swinton Lions. Championship coach of the year Richard Marshall will pit his Halifax side against Kingstone Press Championship Shield winners Featherstone Rovers in the final fixture of the weekend.

Tickets start at just £20 for the day and £30 for the weekend. To purchase yours now, click here or call 0844 856 1113.
