Langtree Park is to host a Challenge Cup semi-final, the Rugby Football League have confirmed.

The club will stage Warrington v Leeds on Saturday, August 9.

The announcement is a welcome boost to Saints’ coffers as the game is almost certain to be a sell out.

RFL marketing director Mark Foster said: “We are anticipating huge demand for tickets for what will be two compelling Tetley’s Challenge Cup ties and our advice to fans is to purchase their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

“Langtree Park and Leigh Sports Village are perfect venues for the semi-finals and will provide terrific backdrops to some high drama as the four clubs showcase the sport to a national television audience.

“In selecting the venues, we have looked at similar criteria as we did when choosing where to place games for the Rugby League World Cup: one of the big considerations was venues that give us every chance of selling out and creating the very best atmosphere to reflect the stature of Tetley’s Challenge Cup semi-finals.”
