Wigan and Hull Reach 2013 Challenge Cup Final

Wednesday, 31, July, 2013
Who will lift the Challenge Cup at Wembley on 24 August?

Wigan and Hull FC booked their places in the Tetley’s Challenge Cup Final at the weekend, and an epic encounter between the teams that battled for the famous cup in 1985 is expected.


And the action under the arch on August 24 will be followed by a second unforgettable afternoon of entertainment on November 23, when Wembley Stadium hosts The Big Hit double header of RLWC2013 Semi-Finals.

At stake is a place in the showpiece final at Old Trafford on November 30, where the curtain will fall on the global sporting event of 2013, and a world champion will be crowned.

New Zealand, Australia and England are expected by many to fill three of the four spots at Wembley, though there will be no shortage of contenders for that final place.

“Somewhere down the line I believe Samoa will be challenging the very best teams in the world, and I see no reason why this can’t be at RLWC2013,” said Samoa’s Frank Winterstein.

“We’d love a crack at a semi-final. You’re only 80 minutes away from the biggest stage of them all, the chance to compete for that trophy at Old Trafford.”

“It’d be massive to play at Wembley. It’s the national stadium, the home of the Tetley’s Challenge Cup Final, and now it’s the home of The Big Hit, which will be an unbelievable event.”
