A weekend in August has also been leaked, with Matt Peet’s champions set to take on Paul Wellens’ St Helens on Saturday, August 17 as the middle game on the opening day.
With a capacity of 38,000, Elland Road most recently hosted the World Cup semi-final between New Zealand and Australia last year, alongside World Club Challenge and Challenge Cup fixtures in the past.
St James’ Park first hosted the Super League festival event in 2015 and had done so every year but one, with Liverpool’s Anfield in 2019. The weekend was also cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic.
It was previously hoped that the home of Newcastle United would be used again next year.
According to the leaked graphic, Hull FC and newly-promoted side London Broncos will kick-off the action followed by Wigan versus Saints, with Warrington Wolves against Leeds Rhinos the final fixture.
The Sunday will see Leigh Leopards take on Salford Red Devils, Catalans Dragons play Hull KR and Huddersfield Giants and Castleford Tigers close out the weekend.
