...in 2020 is to be held in July.

So we will probably see a huge reduction in the gap btw. the quarters and Semi final.

June or even May would be better but at least it’s a step in the right direction.

Only moving to accommodate soccer European Championships. Ralph Rimmer on radio stated 2021 and after still undecided on timing.

1/4 final - Mid May
Semi final - Mid June
Final - end of July.

Give a 5-6 week gap between Semi and Final.

I wouldn't be surprised if the semi final was the week before the final!

Knowing the incompetence of the RFL they could go for a triple header.

Semis in the afternoon and final in the evening. Numpties

Great news because the event is dying, Catalan got a lot of stick last year for a low crowd but this years sales don't look a lot better despite featuring two of the leagues best supported sides and Widnes and Sheffield boosting the numbers, still many tickets left in the bottom two tiers.

They need to attract neutrals again, playing away from a Bank Holiday will at least help with the transport issues, people can at least get a train to London on a July weekend.

How does it accommodate the Euros? I know plenty of games - including both semis and the final - are being played at Wembley, but the tournament will be in June and July. Moving the Challenge Cup final to July actually brings it closer to the Euros, which will be long over by the time August Bank Holiday arrives.

Maybe they want to relay the pitch in August, i.e. the Challenge Cup Final will be the last game on the old pitch
