The line-up for the 2009 Magic Weekend at Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium has been confirmed and it will see three games played on Saturday 2 May and four games on Sunday 3 May.
Kicking off the weekend of engage Super League action in the Scottish capital will be Salford City Reds and Harlequins RL.
This will be followed by the clash between the two West Yorkshire rivals of Bradford Bulls and Wakefield Wildcats, whilst the derby between Wigan Warriors and St Helens will close proceedings on Saturday evening.
Sunday’s first game will be Huddersfield Giants against Celtic Crusaders, followed by Hull FC and Castleford Tigers.
Then in the late afternoon two of last year’s top three will meet when current champions Leeds Rhinos face French side Catalans Dragons.
Sunday evening will then climax with the clash between Warrington Wolves and Hull KR.
Next year’s Magic Weekend promises to be the biggest and best yet, with Edinburgh offering nearly twice as many hotel rooms than Cardiff, the previous home of Magic, and more restaurants per head then any other city in the UK.
It’s not just the city centre though that will offer more opportunities for fans. Plans are underfoot to build a huge family fanzone on land adjacent to Murrayfield which will feature a whole host of activity.
Tickets for next year’s event are extremely good value for money and weekend passes for all seven games start from just £25, £10 for concessions.
Wigan Warriors season ticket holders can also benefit from a 50 per cent discount voucher enabling them to buy tickets at half price.
Now that the fixtures for the event have been confirmed, clubs will go on sale with day passes to Murrayfield in the New Year. Prices start from £15 for adults and £5 for concessions.
