“We wish both teams the best of luck – the district will be cheering you on.”

Tickets for both the Betfred Challenge Cup Final between Castleford Tigers and St Helens and the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup Final between Featherstone Rovers and York City Knights will not be on sale until there is more clarity on the government's roadmap coming out of lockdown and therefore the stadium's capacity.

An announcement is scheduled next Monday (June 14) regarding Step 4 – seven days ahead of the June 21 date which had been identified as the earliest possible for the fourth and final stage of unlocking.
