2020 Reserves Fixtures Announced

The fixture list for the return of Reserves Rugby League and Academy Championship in 2020 has been announced.

The fixture list for the return of Reserves Rugby League in 2020 has been announced, with Hull FC beginning their campaign at home to Bradford Bulls Reserves.

Hull FC competed in an informal reserves competition in 2019, in preparation for the return of Reserves Rugby League for 2020.

Each of the 14 teams will play 18 matches, with the last round of fixtures on the weekend of August 30 – and no play-offs, meaning the team finishing top will be crowned champions.

The Black & Whites’ A-Team will clash with Hull Kingston Rovers’ reserve outfit on Thursday 21st May at home, with a venue to be confirmed in due course.

The full fixture list for Hull FC Reserves is as follows:

Alongside the schedule for reserves, the fixture list for the Academy Championship, which will become an Under-18s competition, has also been published today.

The Academy Championship also involves each team playing 18 fixtures, with the champions to be determined by a four-team Play-Off series culminating in a Grand Final in late September – with the last round of fixtures in the regular season on the weekend of September 11.

Following the disbanding of the City of Hull Academy at the end of the 2019 season, Hull FC and Hull KR’s academies have gone their separate ways and will compete against each other in 2020.
