No, this has been done so that no team plays each other at both Magic and in the loop system.

Yes and it’s a good system to use going forward to avoid any confusion and avoids playing a team 4 times in the regular season

Magic Weekend
1st vs 3rd
2nd vs 4th
5th vs 7th
6th vs 8th
9th vs 11th
10 vs 12th

Loop games
Odd number placed finish vs all Even placed finishes and visa verses
1st vs 2nd-4th-6th-8th-10-12th
2nd vs 1st-3rd-5th-7th-9th-11th
Etc.

So if you finish 7th for example in 2019 then you already know your 2020 fixtures will be loop fixtures vs 2nd-4th-6th-8th-10th-12th and you’ll be playing 5th at Magic.

Gives you as fair and balanced set of loop fixtures as possible when setting the fixtures in November and in theory gives you closely matched Magic games. Always the potential for a mismatch come May but again you don’t know that until the time. Take the Leeds/London game away then the other 5 look like close tricky to call games AT THE MOMENT, I bet come May at least one will look one sided heading into the weekend with form at the time.

Why not play it at Elland Road?






JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Widnes is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

The problem is that we'd like you to get no points and not be gifted them by playing the southern whipping boys 3 times (at least). :D

Hopefully this clashes with the Liverpool marathon and hotel prices will be £250 for the weekend.

Magic weekend at that place. As a diehard Evertonian just what I was dreading.

I'll just go for the Saints game and get out asap.

Looks like they've found a solution to the marathon clash so let's hope they get clever marketing this.......
Scheduling is key
