Welsh Challenge Cup Final part of big list of WRL events out for tender for 2019
Wales Rugby League are pleased to announce that as a result of its ongoing expansion, they have a range of exciting events available to tender for suitable hosts for the 2019 season.
Many of the events are regulars on the WRL calendar, but there are a number of new and returning categories following growth in the last 12 months.
For the first time ever in Wales, there will be a national Welsh Challenge Cup, open for all community sides throughout the country. The final of this, as well as a Welsh Shield Final, will be played as a double header at the end of August. The Wales Rugby League 9s Festival also makes a return in 2019 after a six-year absence.
Magic Day at junior level was such a big success in 2018, it is now being replicated at open-age in the Welsh Premiership, whilst the Dragonhearts, after travelling to Belgrade last year, host the Serbians in 2019.
