Leeds begin their title-defence at Warrington as Super League returns to Sky Sports

Sky Sports will bring viewers another Super League season, this time kicking off at Warrington as they host reigning champions Leeds, with beaten finalists Castleford in action the following day.

The season starts on Thursday 1 February and Sky Sports will show all 12 teams in the opening month of the competition, which also includes newly promoted Hull KR facing Leeds and Catalans in weeks two and three of the season.

Next year will also see the hotly anticipated return of the Hull derby, as the two sides go head-to-head on 30 March and are then part of a super line-up across the Magic Weekend in May, where Sky Sports will show all 12 teams in action.

Head of Sky Sports Rugby League, Neville Smith, said: “We can’t wait to get on the road once more and deliver another exciting season of the Super League. The sport grows from strength to strength and with Sky Sports there every step of the way, we’ll be sure to capture the highs, lows and unpredictability of a new season, capping it all off with the 21st Grand Final on 13 October.”

Sky Sports Rugby League presenter Brian Carney added: “Last season threw up some unexpected plot lines, but one thing is for sure, this year will be full of exciting stories! I expect Wigan to come back with a vengeance, Leeds will want to prove yet again they are the stand-out team and Castleford will want to repeat the brilliance of 2017 and overcome the Grand Final loss. I can’t wait to see everyone back in action.”

The regular season schedule of Thursday and Friday night fixtures will be played out on Sky Sports Action and Arena channels, while Sky Sports News HQ will bring fans updates, interviews and features from across the league on channel 409, all complemented by weekly rugby league programming including Super League Full Time and our comprehensive digital offering on the Sky Sports app and skysports.com.

The 2018 Super League season is part of a year of sport on Sky that includes the biggest games from the Premier League, Euro 2020 and World Cup 2022 home nation qualifying matches, plus Formula 1, golf’s majors, Ryder Cup, England Test cricket, and much more.
