York RLFC to host three Betfred Challenge Cup trophies


York RLFC are delighted to be hosting the three Betfred Challenge Cup trophies ahead of next weekend's historic double header on Sunday 18th June at the LNER Community Stadium.


York will be showcasing the Betfred Men's, Women's and Wheelchair Challenge Cup trophies ahead of the Quarter-Final double header that will see York Valkyrie face Cardiff Demons (2pm) and York Knights meet Leigh Leopards (5pm) on Sunday 18th June.


Next weekend will see the first double header involving both Men's and Women's Betfred Challenge Cup Quarter-Finals at the same venue.

York RLFC's Wheelchair side will make their debut in the Betfred Wheelchair Challenge Cup later this year.


Ahead of the huge weekend, the Club will be taking the three trophies on a tour around the city.


The tour will embrace nine primary schools, three secondary schools, two Universities, three community clubs and a number of key partners.


The trophies will also be at the launch of the new block of the Excel Lions Boys Player Development Programme for Under-15s and Under-16s and the new primary school-aged girls programme, RugBees, both at the York St John University Sports Park.
