Women’s fixtures confirmed

Wigan Warriors Women’s Play-Off fixtures have been confirmed for the remainder of the 2021 season.

On the weekend of 21st-22nd August, the Women’s Betfred Super League Play-Offs will begin, but with five teams involved, Wigan will have to wait the following week to play their first game.

The five teams will play each other once and will be jockeying for position and home advantage in the BWSL Play-Offs Semi Finals on the weekend of 25-26th September 25-26, with the winners of those games then having a fortnight to prepare for the 2021 BWSL Grand Final on Sunday 10th October. 

The Warriors will face Castleford Tigers Women at 3pm on Sunday 29th August at Robin Park Arena – their first game at home since 2019.

On Sunday 5th September, Wigan will host York City Knights Ladies in Round 3 of the Play-Offs (12pm kick-off).

In Round 4, Kris Ratcliffe’s Warriors will travel to Leeds on Sunday 12th September (3pm kick-off), with the clash set to be broadcast live on Twitch at Sport Park Weetwood.

The final game of the Play-Offs for Wigan is The Derby against St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Sunday 19th September (2pm kick-off) – a game also live on Twitch.

Ticket details for all the games will be confirmed in due course.

The BWSL season was paused two weeks ago, one week ahead of the scheduled mid-season break, following a number of fixture postponements, to allow the 10 squads to have an immediate ‘circuit-break’ from the challenges presented by positive Covid-19 tests, self-isolations and injuries.

Points earned from previous matches in the BWSL will not be carried forward to the Play-Offs, because teams had played different numbers of matches against different opponents.
