Super League thanks Hull City Council
Betfred Super League would like to thank Hull City Council for their support in the lead up to the Betfred Super League Grand Final, taking place at the KCOM Stadium on November 27.
In celebration of the biggest night in Super League coming to Hull for the first time, the city of Hull will be lit up on Friday 27 in the competition colours, which at final whistle will change to the team colours of the official 2020 champions. From dusk till dawn the buildings in Queen Victoria Square will be a wash of blue and red, including: The Hull City Hall, The Ferens Art Gallery, and the Maritime Museum.
Councillor Dave Craker, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture said:
“We’re very proud to be hosting the Super League Grand Final this year and I’m looking forward to welcoming the finalists to the KCOM Stadium.
“In these difficult times, the continuation of the rugby league season has provided some much-needed entertainment for thousands of fans and to have the Grand Final in Hull is a great honour.”
Hull has a rich Rugby League history, which was only recently celebrated in an interview with playing and coaching legend Johnny Whiteley for Remembrance Day; and Roy Francis and Clive Sullivan in celebration of Black History Month during October.
Fittingly, a city divided by Super League rivalry; Rovers or FC, East or West, have this season stood in solidarity with former Hull Kingston Rovers player Mose Masoe, who at the beginning of 2020 sustained a life-changing spinal injury. Accordingly, Masoe will also be celebrated on the night of Grand Final.
Rugby League major events will return to the KCOM next year for the Rugby League World Cup 2021.
