Wigan and Warrington to play Super League match in Las Vegas next year

Champions Wigan will play Warrington in Las Vegas in a Betfred Super League match next year, the Rugby Football League has announced.

England’s women’s side will also play a Test match against Australia in the Nevada city on the same day, along with two fixtures from the NRL competition.

The matches will take place on March 1 at the Allegiant Stadium, home of the Las Vegas Raiders and 2024 Super Bowl venue.

The concept is an expansion of the NRL’s successful double-header in Las Vegas earlier this year.

The Super League match will be a regular season fixture and will replace a Wigan home game.

Wigan chief executive Kris Radlinski, one of the prime driving forces behind the initiative, said: “What a stage and what an opportunity for the sport to showcase itself in the entertainment capital of the world.”

The two Australian encounters to take place will be Canberra Raiders v New Zealand Warriors and Penrith Panthers v Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.
