YORK City Knights’ opening fixture of the 2022 Betfred Championship season will be televised on Premier Sports.

The television cameras will be there as James Ford’s men welcome Featherstone Rovers to the LNER Community Stadium on Monday, January 31 (7.45pm).

It will be the first competitive game shown by Premier Sports as part of their Monday night rugby league coverage.

Former Leeds Rhinos and Toronto Wolfpack head coach Brian McDermott will be taking charge of Fev for next season, while Ford has signed a new three-year deal to keep him at the Knights.
