Fiji Bati vs England fixture postponed

The fixture match between Fiji Bati and England scheduled for October 15 has been postponed until 2022. 

This after the recent announcement that the Rugby League World Cup would be moved to Autumn 2022, the club has worked tirelessly with partners to ensure Rochdale Hornets would still host the international rugby league in the run-up to the rescheduled tournament.

An agreement in principle is now in place between Rochdale Hornets, the Rugby Football League and Fiji Rugby League for a fixture to be played at the Crown Oil Arena in the run-up to the RLWC in 2022. 

A date for the rearranged fixture is yet to be confirmed.

Tickets, hospitality, and sponsorship purchased for this year’s event will be valid for the rearranged fixture and tickets will be issued prior to the event fixture. The event fixture is currently unavailable for purchase but will be made available for sale once a new date is set.  

Rochdale Hornets chief executive Steve Kerr said after the initial disappointment that the RLWC will be postponed, they are delighted to reach an initial agreement to reschedule our 150th celebratory event to 2022.
