WARRINGTON Wolves now know who they will face in their opening game of the 2021 season.

The Wire will face Castleford Tigers on Sunday, March 28, with a 2.45pm kick off.

The match will be played behind closed doors at Leeds Rhinos' Emerald Headingley Stadium as part of three days of fixtures as part of the opening weekend, with all six fixtures being shown live on Sky Sports.

Wolves won both clashes with Daryl Powell's side last year in dramatic style - Blake Austin's drop goal secured a 9-8 win at The Halliwell Jones Stadium in March before a 12-10 behind-closed-doors win at the Totally Wicked Stadium in September thanks to Matty Ashton's late try.

In a change to the initial 2021 format, the revised structure will now see teams compete over 25 rounds, including Dacia Magic Weekend. The season finale, the Betfred Super League Grand Final will take place as originally scheduled at Old Trafford on Saturday, 9 October.

Dacia Magic Weekend remains part of the calendar for 2021, however due to on-going Covid-19 crowd restrictions at sporting events, the proposed date for the St James’ Park showpiece, has been moved to 4-5 September.

On the announcement Rhodri Jones, Super League chief commercial officer said: “With the start of the season a little over a month away, Super League would like to thank all our clubs, Sky Sports, our partners and the RFL for their tireless work in helping us make these announcements today.

“We look forward to continuing to work together throughout the 2021 season to deliver what promises to be another fantastic season.”

“Confirmation that Dacia Magic Weekend remains an important part of the 2021 season shows our commitment to the event and thanks must go to Newcastle United in supporting us to achieve this.

“Whilst it is frustrating for all involved to not be welcoming fans back into our stadiums for the start of the season, we are hopeful that as the situation in the country continues to improve and the vaccine rollout nears completion, we will be seeing fans enjoying live sport again soon.

“We will continue to work with all of our stakeholders to ensure that we are ready to deliver the return of fans in a safe and secure way.”
