Rugby League - Leigh to host finals

Leigh Sports Village has been chosen to host the 2013 Kingstone Press Championships Finals Day on Sunday, September 29.

The event has been held at Warrington's Halliwell Jones Stadium for the last five years but it has been decided to take it the home of Leigh Centurions and Swinton Lions.

The Championship Grand Final will take place at 5pm and round off a full day, with the Rugby League Challenge Trophy final kicking off proceedings at noon, followed by the Championship One play-off final at 2.30pm.

Trevor Barton, chief executive of Leigh Centurions, said: "This is fantastic news for Leigh Sports Village and our wider community.

"With a Desso pitch, hi-definition lighting, four changing rooms and top-class sports facilities, Leigh Sports Village is perfectly designed for this type of event and can easily accommodate three games one after the other, and I know that all Leigh fans will warmly welcome every team that gets through to the Finals Day."
