The London Broncos are delighted to announce their fixtures for the 2012 season have been released by the Rugby Football League (RFL).

With one Friday night match, nine Saturday afternoon matches, two Sunday afternoon matches and even one Thursday night match it looks set to be an exciting season for London's only Super League Club.

The season kicks off at The Stoop on February 4 with the first fixture against last year's Super League Grand Finalists, St. Helens.

Two home matches will be played On the Road this season: the first at Leyton Orient's home ground, Brisbane Road on May 6 and the second on May 20 at a venue that is still to be confirmed.

Over the Easter weekend we take on Catalans Dragons again on Thursday night at 8pm, whilst on Easter Monday we travel to 2011 Super League Champions Leeds Rhinos.

Magic weekend this season will be round 15 and will be played at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester on May 26 with London Broncos facing close rivals Catalans Dragons.

The last match in the league will be against Hull KR on September 8.

The Challenge Cup fifth round will be played over the weekend of April 29, with the quarter-finals two weeks later around May 13. The semi-finals will be played in mid-July on July 15 with the Final on August 25.

Gus Mackay, London Broncos Chief Executive commented: "We have opted for the spread of fixtures across the different days in order to give ourselves opportunities to target different audiences as we aim to grow the crowds here at The Stoop.

"The venue for our second On The Road match will be confirmed as soon as possible. We are playing these matches elsewhere for two reasons. The first is to take the game to new audiences and create a buzz about rugby league and London Broncos in London and the South East.

"The second reason is that we need to do some maintenance on the field at The Stoop in order to ensure a decent playing surface for the latter end of our season. In conjunction with Harlequins Rugby Union, we have identified May as the month for that."

Match tickets will go on sale in January 2012 and will be available to purchase online via www.londonbroncosrl.com or over the phone by calling 0208 410 6000.

All Friday night matches will be played at 8pm, Saturday matches will be played at 3pm and all Sunday matches will kick off at 2pm. The Thursday night match will kick off at 8pm.

Season Tickets for the 2012 season are already on sale and can be purchased online or over the phone. There is a special offer of reduced prices on all 2012 season tickets until the end of November. As of December 1 2011 Season Tickets will all be sold at full price.
