Cumbria's Championship rugby league squad Whitehaven RLFC has revealed its fixtures for the 2021 Betfred Championship.

A spokesperson for the club has said: "Our 2021 Betfred Championship campaign will kick off with Haven traveling  to West Yorkshire on Easter Weekend to play our first league game in 389 days. Gary Charlton’s squad will travel to the Tetley’s Stadium to take on Dewsbury Rams."

Whitehaven's first home game in the league will see them defend the Recreation Ground against promoted Newcastle Thunder on Sunday April 18.

Thunder have stepped up to the Championship to replace Leigh Centurions who were promoted to the Betfred Super League in place of the departed Toronto Wolfpack.

Haven bosses said: "Although Haven will not travel to the south of France this coming season, we do take on Toulouse when we welcome the French outfit to the Recreation Ground on Sunday 16th May, followed by consecutive away fixtures vs Widnes Vikings and Sheffield Eagles, who will play their home games at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium."

Oldham, who were promoted alongside Whitehaven RL in the 2019 season, will visit the Recreation Ground on Sunday July 25.

Haven will travel to face Matt Diskin's men on their home turf on Sunday May 9.

The season ends on Sunday September 19, for Haven with a clash against Bradford Bulls.

Haven fans can expect streaming details soon for the games which will be played behind closed doors, with fixtures subject to change.

The spokesperson for Whitehaven RL said: "But we can’t wait, not only to return to the field but to welcome all members of the Chocolate, Blue and Gold army to the terraces of the Recreation Ground and see you loud and proud on the away terraces as soon as possible!"
