BRONCOS TO KICK-OFF SEASON AT HOME

London Broncos will kick off their Kingstone Press Championship season with a home game against Doncaster on Sunday 15th February at The Hive in London (kick-off 3pm).

The Broncos will play all but two home fixtures on Sundays in 2015, a switch from previous seasons for two key reasons. Firstly, with all other Kingstone Press Championship sides playing on Sundays, the Broncos will have the best possible recovery time between games with a consistent turnaround time. Secondly playing home games on a Sunday allows people within the community game in London the opportunity to watch the Broncos given that community games are played on Saturdays.

Other notable fixtures include the Broncos first away game in Round Two, which will see new assistant coach Andrew Henderson go up against his old club as the Broncos travel to Sheffield Eagles on Sunday 22nd February. The Broncos face former Super League opposition in Round Nine on Sunday 12th April when they travel to Bradford Bulls, with the reverse fixture on Sunday 31st May.

During the Easter period the Broncos play away at Featherstone Rovers on Friday 3rd April and at home against Batley Bulldogs on Monday 6th April.

The Broncos last regular fixture of the regular season, before the league splits into The Qualifiers and The Championship Shield, is on Sunday 26th July against Sheffield Eagles at The Hive.
