Super League will return with a triple-header on August 2nd.
There has been no action since Castleford Tigers beat St Helens in March, and now fans can look forward to a return.
The triple-header will take place at a neutral location, yet to be confirmed.
The three games to take place will be Hull KR/ Toronto (1pm), Saints/ Dragons (4.15pm) and Huddersfield/Leeds (6.30pm).
The season will consist of a further 15 rounds, with the playoffs reduced to four teams. The Grand Final will take place in late November, and it is hoped Old Trafford will be available.
As a result, the 2021 season has been pushed back a week.
Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “We are delighted to confirm Betfred Super League will be returning in just a few weeks’ time on Sunday August 2, live on Sky Sports.”
“We are in the final stages of confirming where the games will be played, and we continue to work closely with Sky Sports to deliver the best possible broadcast schedule for our fans. Further details of this will be confirmed over the coming weeks.
“Above all we know that fans want to get back into grounds to support their teams. We will continue to follow government advice and work alongside the RFL, clinical advisors and ground safety personnel to ensure that when that time comes, Super League is ready to welcome back its fans at the first opportunity.
“Whilst the recent government announcements underline increasing optimism, the pandemic remains unpredictable. Our final fixture schedule needs to respond to opportunities that will unfold over the coming weeks and accordingly, full details of fixtures, venues and season structure will be confirmed as they become known”.
