Women's Nines Festival returns this weekend

York Valkyrie will return to the field on Sunday in the Women's Nines Festival at Warrington's Victoria Park.

York won the 2022 Women's Nines but were beaten by Wigan Warriors in last year's Semi-Finals on Finals Day.


This year’s competition will once again see all eight Betfred Women’s Super League sides taking part, alongside teams from the regional Championships including Leigh Leopards, Widnes Vikings and Telford Raiders.

The Valkyrie have been drawn in Group One alongside Warrington Wolves (10.30am), Widnes (11.45am) and Leigh (12.35pm).


Teams have been drawn into four Groups of four with the top team from each – plus two wildcard’s – making it through to Finals Day on Saturday 27th July.


Play will run from 10.30am to 4pm with entry on the day free and much like last year’s event, the occasion will have a festival feel.


RFL Head of Development Tom Brindle said: “We’re really excited to bring the Women’s Nines back to Victoria Park - Nines is an exciting spectacle, and we’ll see lots of fantastic players showcasing their skills on the day.


“As we saw last year through teams like Wigan Warriors and Cardiff Demons, this format can be extremely competitive and is a great opportunity for younger players to introduce themselves, so I would urge fans to come down and experience it for themselves. There will be a real festival feel once again this year, so it should be a great day."
