THE Wire’s Challenge Cup semi-final against Leeds Rhinos will be played in front of a sold-out crowd.

The RFL have confirmed that all available tickets inside the University of Bolton Stadium – which has a capacity of just under 28,000 – have been snapped up.

Warrington Wolves will be backed by around 7,000 fans in the second match of Sunday’s double header, with the stadium’s South Stand expected to be a sea of primrose and blue.

“The Ladbrokes Challenge Cup is the most prestigious competition in rugby league and holding two semi-finals in one stadium is another historic moment in its legacy,” RFL chief executive Ralph Rimmer said.

“It’s fantastic that the two fixtures will be played in front of a full house at The University of Bolton Stadium.

“I am certain that the capacity crowd will create an incredible atmosphere at Bolton.”
