Widnes Vikings’ 2020 fixtures have been confirmed, with the Vikings opening up away at newly promoted Oldham RLFC.
Tim Sheens will make his bow in competitive action as Head Coach of the club at Bower Fold, before two home fixtures against Whitehaven and London to follow.
The club will make the trip to France to take on Toulouse in late August, looking to replicate last season’s win in the South of the France.
As confirmed on Friday morning, Widnes Vikings will again take on Leigh Centurions at the 2020 Summer Bash, in a rematch of the game against John Duffy’s side at Bloomfield Road last year.
The club will close the season against Bradford Bulls, at the Tetley’s Stadium, the same stadium in which the club finished their 2019 season against Dewsbury Rams.
Golden Point Extra Time will be available in all Betfred Championship and League 1 fixtures next season – but with a different twist.
When a game is level at the sounding of the final hooter, each team will take one point for earning a draw – with a third competition point then made available to the first team to score in two five-minute periods of extra time.
The Golden Point will be available for the first time in the Betfred Championship on the weekend of January 31 – February 2.
