Giants confirm Round 6, 7 and 8 fixture and broadcast schedule

Super League has confirmed the broadcast schedule for Rounds 6, 7 & 8

Huddersfield Giants' clash with Warrington Wolves, which is expected to be the first game taking place in front of crowds since March 2020, has been selected for broadcast on Sky, as Betfred Super League is pleased to confirm the fixtures for Rounds 6, 7 and 8 of the 2021 season, including the Sky Sports broadcast schedule.

With the UK government’s roadmap setting Monday 17 May as the earliest date fans are expected to return to stadia, a number of clubs have opted to move their fixtures to this date to hopefully be able to welcome fans back into stadiums for the first time in over fourteen months. The Giants are slated to have crowds returning on 11th June for the visit of Wigan Warriors. 

Ken Davy, interim executive chairman, Super League, said “We can’t wait to see our passionate fans back in grounds cheering their team on. We’ve waited a long time and that day cannot come soon enough, we will be another step closer to some kind of normality. We’re grateful for Sky Sports continued support and flexibility.”

Warrington Wolves, chief executive, Karl Fitzpatrick added: "The game on the 17th is going to be special. Back playing in front of our loyal supporters is going to be a ‘I was there moment’ and to do this in front of the Sky Sports cameras makes it all the more special. We’ve waited a long time for this and there has been so much hard work and sacrifice to get to this point, I think it will be an emotional evening."
