Challenge Cup FinalBelieve it or not (and most southerners will not) but rugby league is the second most popular team sport in Britain and this, the Challenge Cup Final at Wembley, is one of the most prestigious matches in world rugby league. While the game's roots are in firmly in the north of England, this knock-out cup competition, first played in 1897, is now open to a few teams from France and Russia, as well as teams from the Army, Navy and RAF, and some amateur and university sides. Wigan, who defeated Hull 16-0 at Wembley last year, are the current holders of the cup.

 

About Wembley Stadium

The national stadium of the England football team, Wembley Stadium was re-opened in 2007 after a full rebuild to the tune of £757 million. The second largest stadium in Europe, Wembley took over three years to build and is located on the site of the previous 1923 Wembley Stadium, often referred to as 'The Twin Towers' or Empire Stadium, which was demolished in 2003.
