The John Smith’s Stadium and Kirklees Council are pleased to confirm that all 32 teams across the 21 nations participating in the Rugby League World Cup 2021 Tournament have committed to the revised dates!
Taking place between 15th October and 19th November 2022, the rescheduling has impacted only 5 matches across the 61-match schedule. The opening match will remain at Newcastle’s St James’ Park and the double-header Final at its original home at Old Trafford, Manchester.
We look forward to hosting the Men’s Quarter Final here at The John Smith’s Stadium on Friday 04 November 2022 and being part of the ‘biggest and best’ Rugby League World Cup.
