With the UK Government’s roadmap setting Monday, May 17, as the earliest date fans are expected to return to stadia, a number of clubs have opted to move their fixtures to this date to and and hopefully be able to welcome fans back into stadiums for the first time in over 14 months..

Leeds Rhinos will kick off round six when they face Wakefield Trinity at Emerald Headingley Stadium on Friday, May 14 (kick-off 7.45pm).

On Monday, May 17, Sky Sports will broadcast Warrington Wolves versus Huddersfield Giants at the Halliwell Jones Stadium – a fixture which could be one of the first sporting events to welcome fans back this year.

Ken Davy, interim executive chairman, Super League, said “We can’t wait to see our passionate fans back in grounds cheering their team on. We’ve waited a long time and that day cannot come soon enough, we will be another step closer to some kind of normality. We’re grateful for Sky Sports continued support and flexibility.”

Warrington Wolves, chief executive, Karl Fitzpatrick added: "The game on the 17th is going to be special.

''Back playing in front of our loyal supporters is going to be a ‘I was there moment’ and to do this in front of the Sky Sports cameras makes it all the more special. We’ve waited a long time for this and there has been so much hard work and sacrifice to get to this point, I think it will be an emotional evening."
