The games will take place across the Bank Holiday weekend of 26 and 27 May at Bloomfield Road, home of Blackpool FC, for the fourth year in a row.
In 2017, the Bash brought a record attendance of 16,444 and it has been a huge success in the previous three years at the seaside resort.
Newly-promoted Canadian outfit Toronto Wolfpack will play at the Bash for the first time as they take on Super League’s relegated side Leigh Centurions.
