The Panthers opening four rounds of the Betfred Championship including dates and times have now been confirmed.

Our opening game against London Broncos originally scheduled for Easter Sunday has been brought forward to Good Friday with a 5pm Kick Off time.

The Panthers then travel to fierce rivals Bradford Bulls for round 2 on Sunday 18th April with a 5.15pm Kick Off time confirmed.

We then welcome french side Touoluse to the Shay on Sunday 25th April for a 3pm kick off at The Shay Stadium before travelling to Bower Fold to face Oldham the following Saturday  for a 12.15pm kick off.

All of these games will once again be shown on Our League, free to the Season Ticket Holders of the home club, with all fans able to watch on Pay Per View.

Streaming passes will go on sale in the next couple of weeks, after the initial block of pre-season matches and the First Round of the Betfred Challenge Cup.

Day and weekend passes will again be made available at £15 and £20, and with the same Earlybird offer of £4-95 for each game.

The full schedule for the first four rounds of the Betfred Championship is listed below. There is one change to the opening round, with Halifax Panthers’ home game against London Broncos brought forward to Good Friday with a 5pm kick-off.

All profit from these PPV games goes to the participating clubs – allowing them to make up crucial lost income from having to play matches behind closed doors in the early stages of the 2021 season.
