More info on the 2021 World Cup

ENGLAND and Australia, two of the fancied teams in next year’s World Cup, will be based in Manchester and Trafford during the three-way event that will incorporate men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments and will make a spectacular start in October next year when England (men) take on Samoa at St James Park, Newcaastle.

News of where the various nations will be based formed part of this week’s official launch of the RLWC2021 brand with exactly 500 days to go to the start of the big event in the North-East.

As well as Manchester, teams will be located all over the North and also down in London.

The towns and cities involved are Manchester, Bolton, Liverpool, St Helens, Preston, Warrington, Wigan, Leigh, Doncaster, Hull, Leeds, London, Newcastle, Sheffield, Tees Valley and York.

RLWC2021 chief Jon Dutton said:

“All hosts are proud of their communities so all competing teams will be guaranteed a warm welcome and we’re asking our hosts to adopt the incoming nations and treat them as their own.

“Our tournament identity, which has togetherness at its core, is a signpost to hope, optimism and expectation for all that’s to come in 2021 as we continue to build momentum towards what promises to be the biggest and best-ever Rugby League World Cup.”

Club Cash Lottery

In challenging times for businesses we are again stressing our urgent need for more financial support via the Club Cash lottery from both existing and new members.

With door-to-door collections temporarily abandoned, some have paid up front to cover a few weeks; moved to direct debit; or completed a bank transfer but the overall result has seen a drop in lottery income of nearly 50 per cent.

This trend is hitting all clubs and organisations and we have had to temporarily modify the weekly prize structure in line with the number of people taking part.

We still have a weekly first prize of £1,000 and other prizes of £100, £50 and £25 plus some £10 consolation prizes and we urgently and seriously need people to help us on this.

One way is to download a direct debit form here and follow the instructions.
