BBC TO BROADCAST RED STAR BELGRADE’S CHALLENGE CUP OPENER

Post by josie andrews » Tue Jan 08, 2019 2:06 pm

The 2019 Challenge Cup first round fixture between Millom and Red Star Belgrade at Coronation Field on Sunday, January 27 (KO 1.30pm) is to be live streamed on the BBC Sport website.

Formed in 1873, Cumbrian side Millom are the oldest amateur rugby league club in the world and will come head to head with Serbian Champions Red Star Belgrade who will launch their first Challenge Cup venture in this year’s competition.

In 2018, Millom defeated Strathmore Silverbacks and Bradford Dudley Hill to reach Round 3 of the competition, where they came head to head with NCL side Pilkington Recs.

Showcasing the game from grass roots level upwards, streamed games featuring the likes of York City Knights v Catalans Dragons and Rochdale Mayfield v Crosfields attracted over 92,000 viewers last year.

Red Star supporters who can’t make the trip to Cumbria will also be able to watch the game across the world via the BBC Sport website.

BBC Sport and the Rugby Football League will live stream one game from each of the first five rounds of the 2019 Challenge Cup. When the competition reaches the sixth round and beyond, matches will be screened on BBC1 and BBC2 over each weekend.

Tickets for the 2019 Challenge Cup final at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, August 25 can be purchased by calling the Rugby League Ticket Office on 0844 856 1113 or by visiting www.rugby-league.com/tickets

that takes a lot of courage.

Just been out for my daily wander, had a walk round by the rugby and couldn't believe the wind, was getting blown all over the shop, we are used to very strong winds in Millom but this was something else, It took me 40 minutes to do a 30 minute walk, It's going to be an interesting game, can't wait, If anyones watching, I'll be the one leaning on the wall :D

You need to reload your stream 😊

Seemed to be a problem with the link from the BBC RL page that would not recognise my login details. Finally managed to get it by logging in from iPlayer.

Millom must have one of the most picturesque grounds in world rugby. Stunning scenery. One of the best things about the BBC streaming the early stages of the Challenge Cup is seeing these historic amateur sides. The amateur game is still the heart of rugby league.

It sure is and it's only a 5 minute walk to the nearest beach which has a spectacular view of the Lakeland mountains.
