Revised Rugby League World Cup 2021

The road to the rescheduled Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021) officially began on Monday the 15th November 2021, just 100 days after the very difficult decision to postpone the original tournament.

A huge amount of work has gone in behind the scenes, and thanks to so many people, we all believe that everything is now in place to deliver a bigger and better tournament next autumn, as well as reaffirming the commitment of all the competing nations.

The tournament will kick off at St James’ Park, in Newcastle on Saturday 15 October 2022 when England men take on Samoa men. The tournament will then culminate in spectacular fashion at Old Trafford, in Manchester on Saturday 19th November 2022 with the men’s and women’s double-header final.

In a unique and busy year of international sport and events, staged both domestically and overseas, only five RLWC2021 fixtures (four match-days) have been affected during the rescheduling of 61 matches staged at 21 iconic venues, across 18 host towns and cities. These changes are the switching of two fixtures between existing venues and the movement of two events to alternative venues. (Please see here the RLWC2021 2022 Official Schedule for changes).

All 32 teams across the 21 competing nations participating in the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments have fully committed to the tournament in 2022. In addition, organisers can also confirm the re-introduction of the Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup, hosted in Warrington, which will welcome Ireland as a sixth participant.

General admission tickets and hospitality for all 61 matches are now back on sale. Please see our hospitality packages and prices below or contact Michaela Brook on: michaela@ksdl.org.uk or 01484 484124.

Fans who have purchased tickets for the small number of revised fixtures will be contacted with information on what will happen next with their tickets. A dedicated refund window will be available from Wednesday 24 November to request refunds.
