The Rugby Football League will continue to work with the Government and public health authorities, following tonight’s announcement that lockdown easing in England is to be delayed by four weeks.
The RFL are working with DCMS and Wembley Stadium to maximise capacity at the stadium for the Betfred Challenge Cup Final and AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final on Saturday 17 July.
Mark Foster, the RFL’s Chief Commercial Officer, says: “We have had talks with the Government in recent weeks and particularly in the last week since the semi-finals, and these continued over the weekend and today. With further discussions planned during the next couple of days, we hope to make a further announcement on ticketing arrangements before the end of the week.
“We have deliberately held back a proportion of tickets at Wembley Stadium, even for a limited capacity, to ensure that some supporters of the four clubs involved will be able to attend. With over four weeks to the finals the timescale is tight, but we still have enough time to ensure fans are able to purchase tickets, deal with any requirements to attend, plan their journeys and have a safe and enjoyable experience on match day.”
A further update will be announced in due course.
