Betfred Super League’s 2020 Grand Final will be played at the KCOM Stadium on Friday 27 November (kick-off 8pm local time). See kick-off times for other countries at the end of this article.
The decision to move the Grand Final away from Old Trafford for the first time is down to Manchester United’s congested fixture schedule at the end of November.
Super League Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “It’s unfortunate that the Covid-affected fixture schedules, of both Manchester United and Super League, mean that despite our best efforts we have had to find an alternative to the only home the Super League Grand Final has ever known.
“After full consideration of a number of options, we’re delighted to confirm that we will be taking the 2020 Betfred Super League Grand Final to the KCOM Stadium in Hull; a city and stadium with a proud rugby league heritage and one worthy of hosting the Game’s showpiece event.
“We will miss Old Trafford. Most of all we all will miss the nerve-jangling atmosphere created by 70,000 fans.
“The absence of supporters will bring into focus the challenges, and all too often tragedies, of a year we are all anxious to put behind us.
“For the first time in our history, the Super League season will reach its thrilling conclusion on a Friday night.
“We are excited about the new kick-off time. Friday nights have always featured strongly in the rugby league calendar.
“We set the bar high last year with a record television audience and we are confident that the 2020 Super League Grand Final at the KCOM will build on that success, writing another exciting chapter in the Grand Final’s proud and compelling history.”
