St Helens Women will kick off their Super League campaign against York City Knights.
They join Bradford Bulls Women, Featherstone Rovers Ladies, Castleford Tigers, Leeds Rhinos Women and Wigan Warriors Women in this year’s competition.
Each team will play each other twice over 14 rounds of the regular season which will begin on April 8 and end on September 30.
The top four teams at this point will then enter into semi-final play-offs, with first place playing fourth and second playing third, before the Women’s Super League Grand Final on Saturday, October 13 at the Manchester Regional Arena, Etihad Campus.
Saints head coach Mark Brennan said: “We are expecting a really competitive league this season and a tough opening game against York.
“They are a new team this year and we won’t be taking them or any of the other teams lightly. We are looking to challenge ourselves throughout the season to be the best we can.
“We are happy how our preparations are going at the minute. We have had some good sessions in and will continue to work hard for each other.”
Venues for the fixtures will be announced shortly.
