London Skolars have agreed become ‘host venue’ for the world’s first Transatlantic rugby team, Toronto Wolfpack, in their Championship game against Yorkshire side Halifax.

Saturday April 28th will see the ‘Wolfpack’ play a ‘home game’ on the road due to ongoing developments at Lamport Stadium in Toronto. The Canadian side will be making their second visit to the capital in a year, following the Skolars game against the Toronto men in the 2017 season opener.

Commenting on the landmark game, Skolars General Manager, Simon Fox, said:

“The Wolfpack have made a huge impact within the game of Rugby League in their relatively short existence. They are a club and a brand that exude class and have a real desire to expand their support base and following. London is the perfect platform for them to do that and given their ongoing stadium developments and the large Canadian community in the Capital, we were delighted to offer the use of New River Stadium to support their ambitions.”

Kick off will for the landmark game will be at 6.30pm with gates opening from 5pm. A pre-match Try Tag Rugby Tournament will take place alongside a Canadian themed ‘Fanzone’, boasting live music and entertainment before and after the game.
