Rugby league fans are set to descend on the Etihad Stadium in Manchester for next month's Magic Weekend.
For the first time, the home of Manchester City FC is due to host a full round of Stobart Super League fixtures over two days.
The Magic Weekend will take place on Saturday May 26th and Sunday May 27th, with three matches held on the first day and four games kicking off on the second.
Current league leaders Huddersfield Giants are set to take on local side Salford City Reds at 14:00 BST on May 27th, while second-placed Wigan Warriors will play St Helens at 18:00.
At 19:00 on May 26th, the first day's action will climax with a derby clash featuring Hull FC and their city rivals Hull Kingston Rovers.
"There are some fantastic matches in store and I'm sure we are going to see some bumper crowds at the Etihad Stadium," said Super League chief executive Nigel Wood.
Tickets for the full weekend are available from £45 for adults and £22.50 for concessions. Adult day tickets are priced from £30 and concessions are available from £15.
