Magic Weekend brings a festival atmosphere to St James' Park as fans from all clubs mingle in the fan village before enjoying the action in the bowl.


Newcastle to host Magic Weekend in 2015


St. James’ Park in Newcastle will host a full round of First Utility Super League fixtures next May when Rugby League’s unique six-match extravaganza takes place in the North East for the first time.

The event will see the sport’s elite players from the 12 Super League clubs showcase their skill and athleticism in six matches – three on Saturday May 30 and three on Sunday May 31 – at the home of Premier League football club Newcastle United.

Rugby League fans from around the country are expected to converge in their thousands to watch the action and experience the famous hospitality, sights and sounds of a city and region which welcomes millions of visitors each year.

Super League General Manager Blake Solly believes Newcastle is the ideal venue in 2015.

“St James’ Park is one of Britain’s iconic sporting stadiums and Newcastle is a fantastic destination city that will provide the perfect backdrop to the First Utility Super League Magic Weekend,” said Solly.

“From all our engagement with Newcastle United, the local authority and other agencies, it is clear that the region will welcome Rugby League fans with open arms and I have no doubts that Magic Weekend 2015 will be a huge success.

“We did receive interest in staging Magic Weekend from a number of other venues but none provided as good a fit as Newcastle for many reasons, including its transport links, hotel and accommodation options and opportunities for our fans to enjoy a weekend to remember.”

As well as the exciting action on the pitch, visitors to Newcastle can take in sights such as the Angel of the North and Tyne Bridge, and visit the award-winning Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art and The Sage.

Famous for shopping destinations such as the Metrocentre and its lively nightlife where fans can unwind after watching a thrilling day of Rugby League, Newcastle ticks all the boxes to make Magic Weekend 2015 a memorable one.

Sean Bullick, Chief Executive of NE1 Ltd said: “NE1 is delighted to be hosting Magic Weekend and to be welcoming Rugby League teams and fans to Newcastle.  

“The city is well placed to host Magic Weekend and we will give a fabulous welcome to the visiting teams and the 65,000 expected spectators.

“The economic impact of this will be significant, particularly for the hotels and restaurants, as well as the retailers. Similar events such as the 2012 Olympics and Great North Run have generated millions of pounds for the city.

“Large scale events like this do a fantastic job of promoting Newcastle and the wider region.  I’m sure visiting fans will have a fantastic time in the city and we hope this will be the best Magic Weekend so far.”
