London Stock Exchange Group welcomes Rugby League World Cup 2021

In exactly one year’s time, the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup in history will reach its thrilling climax in a showpiece weekend in Manchester featuring the wheelchair final followed by the double-header men’s and women’s final at Old Trafford. 

Today (November 19) Rugby League World Cup 2021 tournament organisers have confirmed the full revised 61 match schedule for the tournament in 2022 as well as making tickets available to purchase.

The tournament will feature the Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair World Cups, together on the same platform for the first time. The 61 games will take place across 21 venues with 32 teams from across the world competing.

Five weeks of world-class sporting action begins at St James’ Park, Newcastle on October 15 before Headingley Stadium, Leeds opens the women’s tournament on November 1 and a double-header at the iconic Copper Box, London kicks off the wheelchair event on November 3.

At the heart of the tournament is a trailblazing social impact programme that is already creating significant social benefit in local communities. RLWC2021 are committed to shining a global spotlight on the North, not least from the way the sport is woven into the social fabric of many places that the tournament will visit.

RLWC2021 ambassadors, former players, RLWC201 partners and executives across the sport and business will join together today to celebrate this important tournament milestone and start the official countdown to the event.

Jon Dutton, RLWC2021 Chief Executive Officer, said:

“We are delighted to be joined by the three World Cup trophies, tournament ambassadors and former players at the London Stock Exchange today for this special opportunity to collectively celebrate the release of the tournament schedule for 2022.”

“We feel privileged to be part of this unique ceremony and for a brief moment place Rugby League at the beating heart of the UK’s economy. I am very thankful to the London Stock Exchange, HANetf and those who have made this possible.”
