HRH The Duke of Sussex will be chief guest when St Helens and Warrington Wolves meet in the 118th Challenge Cup Final on Saturday, August 24, kick-off 3pm.

He has been patron of the Rugby Football League since December 2016, when he succeeded his grandmother Her Majesty the Queen.

Simon Johnson, Interim Chair of the Rugby Football League, said: “The Rugby League Challenge Cup Final is established as a special and historic day in the British sporting calendar.

"It was first contested in 1897, and first staged at Wembley Stadium in 1929 - and we are delighted and honoured that The Duke of Sussex will be attending in his role as Patron of the Rugby Football League.

"We hope His Royal Highness will enjoy seeing the two current best teams in front of a passionate and colourful crowd at Rugby League’s showpiece event.”

The 2019 Coral Challenge Cup Final promises to be a thrilling national sporting occasion.

St Helens, who will be making their first Wembley appearance since 2008, versus Warrington Wolves, who are making their sixth Wembley appearance in 11 years.
