York City Knights – Game goes ahead
13 Mar 2020 @ 7.14 am

York City Knights are playing as planned on Sunday (15 March).

Its Bootham Crescent fixture against Rochdale Hornets in Round 5 of the Coral Challenge Cup at Bootham Crescent kicks off at 3pm.

This follows a statement from the Rugby League acknowledging that the situation is unsettling, but abiding by government advice that sporting fixtures should go ahead.

It says:

  • The RFL and Super League have again reminded clubs of the importance of sensible hygiene for all those who attend, and especially for players to set the right example in that regard…

    For the moment, we hope supporters will feel comfortable in attending matches, and backing their clubs, in challenging times for everyone.
