Etihad Stadium will repeat Magic in 2014

Following a highly successful seventh Magic Weekend, the RFL has confirmed that all 14 Super League Clubs will return to the Etihad Stadium, Manchester, over the weekend of Saturday 17 May and Sunday 18 May.

The 2014 Magic Weekend will be the second year of a two-year agreement with the RFL to stage the event, with the fixtures for the weekend to be confirmed later in the year.

Manchester City Operations Director Steve Sayer said:

Now in its second consecutive year at the Etihad Stadium, It was fantastic to once again welcome back legions of Super League fans to East Manchester.  The festival atmosphere in and around the stadium not only demonstrates the passion of the fans, but also why the Magic Weekend continues to grow in popularity. It’s a privilege to host such a great event and we can’t wait to do it again in May 2014 when the Magic Weekend returns for another action packed weekend of Rugby League.

Over 60,000 fans enjoyed a superb weekend of sporting action at Magic 2013, with a programme of matches and entertainment for all the family. The new tram link to Etihad Campus made access to the stadium even easier for many fans and the Fanzone was buzzing with activity including a whole range of fun challenges run by Super League partners including Heinz, Foxy Bingo, Brut, and Irn Bru.
