On the iconic Provan-Summons Trophy, Wigan Warriors Executive Director, Kris Radlinski said: “The Trophy, which is currently held by the Sydney Roosters, is one of the most recognisable in the sporting world and as a gesture to other Betfred Super League Club fans, Wigan have arranged a trophy tour so everyone can enjoy this piece of history as we build up to Sunday’s showpiece at the DW Stadium.

“I’d like to thank the Sydney Roosters and the NRL for supporting this concept, and we’re looking forward to what promises to be another memorable weekend kicked off by the Betfred World Club Challenge Trophy tour.”

Fans of Wigan Warriors can see it up close and personal at an exclusive World Club Challenge event on Thursday leading up to the Betfred World Club Challenge Final at the DW Stadium on Sunday evening, before Friday’s tour that will kick-off in Wigan in the morning before heading to St Helens, Salford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Wakefield, Castleford and Hull. On Saturday morning, all three trophies will be on show in Wigan’s Grand Arcade, near the Warriors World store from 11am-1pm before heading to Warrington for when the Roosters train at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
