Challenge Cup Final

Wembley Stadium

The Challenge Cup final takes place at Wembley Stadium on the 23 August between Castleford Tigers and Leeds Rhinos.

With their first Wembley appearance in 22 years, the Castleford Tigers secured a place in the Challenge Cup by beating the Widnes Vikings 28-6, scoring five tries during the semi-final.

Having been defeated 6 times in the Final since their last Challenge Cup win in 1999, Leeds Rhinos will no doubt be looking to win this time.

The Challenge Cup final starts at 15:00 in front of a packed Wembley Stadium.
