2021 Challenge Cup Semi-Final Draw





The draw for the semi-finals of the 2021 Betfred Challenge Cup was made at half time during the fourth quarter final at Headingley, with the balls being pulled out of the bag by Leeds Rhinos legend Jamie Peacock.

Warrington Wolves and St Helens made it into the semi-finals yesterday evening and were joined earlier today by Hull FC after they knocked out the Wigan Warriors.

The semi-finals will be played on the 5th June before the final at Wembley on the 17th July.

Needs to be a bigger venue. 25% of capacity only = 6000 at Huddersfield

Should be separate days for this year

People haven't been for over a year

So to miss another match cause of a small allocation is poor

I'd expect both games to sell the 10,000 this year

Already been confirmed as a triple header.

Venue will be interesting given that Saints will be there and possibly Leeds for the womens's final. It would be unfair for either of them to have home advantage.

I wonder if the RFL might throw a curveball and have the semis at somewhere like St James Park or Bolton.

More chance that the RFL will choose York, with it’s 8,000 capacity, so 2,000 on the day.
Logically, Huddersfield would be the realistic choice, but should have held the two semi finals on separate days to get more fans in. Unless they book Elland Road, 40,000 (10,000 @ 25%).

Agree 100% with this.

Don’t see why Warrington fans should get to see Hull v Saints or why Hull fans should get to see Warrington at the expense of fans from each of the respective clubs missing out on seeing their own team.

Doing this triple header has in reality cut each clubs allocation in half and given how sparse the ticket allocations will already be, there’ll be a lot of people missing out on seeing their team when they could’ve got a ticket had the RFL used their common sense and had the semi finals on separate days.

In addition, having a single Triple Header event, with at different sets of supporters coming from different towns/cities, creates the RFL’s very own Covid Super Spreader Event. :DOH:

Indeed. A rather bizarre call in itself really, given how away fans aren’t allowed to attend matches until the next step of the roadmap.
