Fancy being fifth official at the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup Final?

Specsavers have teamed up with the Rugby Football League to offer one young aspiring referee the chance to become the ‘Fifth Official’ at this year’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup final at Wembley.


Specsavers, proud partners of the Rugby Football League, are offering this unique opportunity to join the match officials at the final. The lucky winner will have a behind-the-scenes tour of Wembley connected by EE, meet both team captains during the coin toss, spend time with the video referee in the broadcast truck before walking out with the teams and referee to present the match ball.

You could be part of the Match Officials team on August 26 at Wembley Stadium
