Super League has confirmed that Dacia Magic Weekend will return to Newcastle and St James’ Park in 2020 after one year at Liverpool’s Anfield Stadium with fixtures to be played over May Bank Holiday weekend (23/24th May).
CEO Robert Elstone remarked that “Super League had a great time at Anfield,” adding reference to the fact it was popular with players who had the opportunity to play at the iconic football stadium. “However, we have now spoken at length to our fans and listened to what they have had to say,” he added. “We have had the opportunity to take advantage of some fierce competition for the event from competing venues. “As a result of both, we are delighted to announce that the Dacia Magic Weekend 2020 will return to Newcastle and St James’ Park.”
The event previously spent five consecutive years at the home of Newcastle United with record crowds being attracted in 2017. As a city, Newcastle has hosted many high-profile national and international events in recent years and the return of Dacia Magic Weekend will be a welcome addition to the city’s 2020 calendar.
