Super League Champions 2018
After Tuesday’s Betfred Super League fixture announcement we take note of some of the key dates in Wigan Warriors’ 2020 calendar.
Adrian Lam’s Wigan played Warrington four times in all competitions last season and the heated rivalry will resume on the opening night of the 2020 Betfred Super League.
New Warriors signing Mitch Clark will go back to his old club in Wigan’s first away game of the campaign, as they head to Castleford.
The Cherry and Whites will meet newly-promoted Canadian side Toronto for the first time in what will be their second home game of the year.
This will be the first encounter between the two sides since the Play-Off Semi-Final at the DW Stadium in October, where Salford defied the odds and progressed to their first Grand Final.
An annual fixture, the Good Friday derby will take place at the Totally Wicked Stadium this year with Wigan making the short trip over Billinge Hill for the heavyweight clash.
History will be made as Wigan will travel over 3,300 miles to Toronto in what will be the Wolfpack’s second home game (at the Lamport Stadium) of the season.
This will be the fourth consecutive Magic Weekend head-to-head between Warrington and Wigan, and they are always an entertaining watch with one win for either side and a draw in the last three years.
After last year’s historic game at the Camp Nou, Barcelona, Catalans’ home game against the Warriors will be on their usual home turf - the Stade Gilbert Brutus, and it is always an away day experience that never disappoints for travelling fans.
The final home game of Wigan’s regular season, and they don’t come much bigger as local rivals Saints come to town - a fixture in the past which has seen DW Stadium attendance records broken.
The final game of the regular campaign comes from the Halliwell Jones Stadium as both sides end the year like they started it - against one another.
