Eagles home opener rescheduled
Sheffield Eagles can today confirm that our first scheduled home fixture on Sunday 06 March 2022 will now take place at Workington Town, kick off 2pm.
Minor delays to the construction of the Community Stadium, the new permanent home of Sheffield Eagles mean that there would be a potential that the fixture would be unable to be staged.
With this, Workington Town have agreed to ‘reverse’ our 2022 league fixtures, with Sheffield now travelling to Cumbria on Sunday 06 March, kick off 2pm.
The Eagles will then host Workington on Sunday 24 July, at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park, with a 3pm kick off.
The club, when informed of the slight delay has worked in co-operation with Scarborough Group International, GMI Construction, the RFL and Workington to find a suitable solution for all.
Speaking of the news, Eagles General Manager Liam Claffey said: ‘Whilst this is regrettable we have moved swiftly resolve the situation and our thanks go to everyone involved to helping ensure we resolved quickly,”
“In particular we’d like to thank Workington for their understanding and prompt assistance in agreeing to reverse the fixtures.
“The build is progressing brilliantly and despite this slight delay hopefully everyone can see what a fantastic, permanent home the Community Stadium will provide for the club, for years to come.”
Sheffield Eagles’ first game at the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park will now be against London Broncos on Good Friday (15 April), kick off 3pm.
All those who have already purchased tickets will be entitled to transfer to an alternative home game or request a full refund.
Refunds will be granted and received within 7 working days of the request.
We ask all ticket holders contact the club via email on firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday 22 December.
Sheffield Eagles apologises for any inconvenience this causes and we look forward to providing updates and further news regarding the Community Stadium in due course.
