York Knights and Toulouse Olympique will make history on Easter Sunday (March 31st) when their Round Two fixture at the LNER Community Stadium becomes the first Betfred Championship match to be shown on the sport’s global direct-to-consumer streaming platform SuperLeague+.

Kick-off is at 3pm, as both Andrew Henderson’s Knights and Sylvain Houles’ French challengers aim to bounce back from Round One losses in South Yorkshire, at Doncaster and Sheffield Eagles respectively.

 

York RLFC Chairman Clint Goodchild said: “To showcase the Betfred Championship on SuperLeague+ for the first time is an exciting opportunity and we hope that fans at home in Toulouse and across the UK enjoy what is sure to be a tough contest.”


Head of Broadcast at RL Commercial Adam Treeby: “We are delighted that York Knights and Toulouse Olympique have taken this decision to stream the first Betfred Championship match through SuperLeague+.


“The Knights are already guaranteed a healthy Easter crowd at the LNER Community Stadium having announced record season ticket sales this week, and streaming the match through SuperLeague+ will allow Toulouse’s many supporters across France to watch their team before they return home for their first match in 2024 at the Stade Ernest Wallon next month.


“We also believe many existing SuperLeague+ subscribers will be keen to watch a first Betfred Championship fixture in 2024.


“As ever, the Easter weekend promises to be a feast of Rugby League, with Super League’s Rivals Round kicking off with Castleford Tigers versus Leeds Rhinos on Thursday night – a game that will be shown live and for free in the UK and worldwide on SuperLeague+.


“Now it will feature a French double header, with Warrington Wolves hosting Catalans Dragons on Saturday afternoon before the York-Toulouse fixture on Sunday.”
