Date published: Thursday, August 25, 2011

The official souvenir programme for Saturday’s eagerly awaited Carnegie Challenge Cup final is a must-read for all fans heading to Wembley for the big day.

The 76-page A4 edition is crammed full of features on the finalists, Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors, including interviews with head coaches Brian McDermott and Michael Maguire, as well as star players Sam Tomkins and Jamie Peacock and captains Kevin Sinfield and Sean O’Loughlin.

But there’s much more too in the publication that accompanies the showpiece event in the Rugby League calendar – all written by the game’s leading writers from the national media.

The history and tradition of the Challenge Cup is celebrated with great features and pictures from past epic encounters under Wembley’s Twin Towers or Arch.
Copies of the official programme, priced at £6, will be available from sales points all around Wembley Stadium on the day of the game, but will also be available from departure points in both Wigan and Leeds on the morning of the match.

Copies of the publication are also available on mail-order from Ignition Publications by calling 01347 821344 (a £2 p&p supplement applies to mail order copies).
