New World Cup brand launched

It’s exactly 500 days to go to the start of next year’s Rugby League World Cup which begins at St James Park, Newcastle on October 23, 2021.


The spectacular World Cup kick-off will see England take on Samoa at an iconic stadium that has become synonymous with Rugby League thanks to the North-East popularity of Magic Weekend and its ideal situation in the heart of the Geordie city.

To mark the 500-day milestone, World Cup organisers have today (Wed) unveiled a new branding for the tournament, aptly called “The Power of Togetherness” and including three stars to represent the three tournaments that will run side by side, the men’s, women’s and wheelchair events.

A World Cup spokesperson said:

“The Power of Togetherness will allow us to focus on human interest stories, emotional connections and a celebration of togetherness.

“Our refreshed World Cup identity showcases the values of inclusivity and boldness by incorporating all three tournaments into one logo which represents the uniqueness of RLWC2021.”

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
