They end the month with a derby at Castleford Tigers on February 21, with the match set to be shown live on Sky Sports.

Trinity will play newly-promoted Toronto Wolfpack three times in 2020, with two games away from home.

The first 'away' game, scheduled for March 22, will be played in the UK, however, with a location for the fixture yet be decided.

Wakefield fans can look forward to two overseas trips next season as they travel to Catalans Dragons on May 2 before a trip to Toronto on September 5 in the penultimate game of the campaign.

Teams will play only once over the Easter period in 2020 with Wakefield set to face rivals Leeds Rhinos at Headingley on April 9, in what will be the second of Trinity's fixtures to be broadcast on Sky Sports.

Chester's men then welcome rivals Castleford to Belle Vue on April 17.

Trinity will play the Rhinos three times next season, with two of the fixtures played at Headingley.

Wakefield will host Leeds in their final game of the season on September 11. The final round of games will all be played on the same day and at the same time, with all fixtures kicking off at 7.45pm.

Trinity will also play Wigan Warriors three times in 2020, hosting Adrian Lam's side on March 27 and June 11 before travelling to the DW Stadium on August 7.

Their first clash against Super League winners St Helens comes away from home on April 24.

Super League Chief Commercial Officer Rhodri Jones said: “We are delighted to be able to share the full 2020 schedule with our fans, and after a lot of work, we are happy with what has been created.

“Round 1 promises to be a fantastic start to our 25th season with some real heavyweight fixtures.

“There is a new feel to Easter, appreciating the tough nature of Super League on the players, and we’ve kept the Friday night final round of games which proved so successful in 2019.

“There is clearly a lot of excitement with Toronto Wolfpack coming into Super League and we’ve had to work through a number of logistical challenges regarding their fixtures."
