Super League's Magic Weekend is to return to Newcastle United's St James' Park in 2020. The event was staged at the Magpies' ground for four years between 2014 and 2018 before being held at Liverpool's Anfield home in 2019. Magic Weekend takes a round of regular-season fixtures featuring all six games 'on the road' to a neutral venue. The event will take place on 23 & 24 May 2020. In the four years at St James' Park, the venue set the record for the three highest cumulative attendances and the highest single day attendance of 40,871. Super League chief executive Robert Elstone said: "Super League had a great time at Anfield. In particular, it will be an experience that will live long in the memories of our players. "However, we have now spoken at length to our fans and listened to what they have had to say. "As a result, we are delighted to announce that the Magic Weekend 2020 will return to Newcastle and St James' Park."
