Back the Bid RLWC 2021 Doncaster


Set to be the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup in history, the inspirational moments of England 2021 will capture the imagination of all.

The Rugby League World Cup has been the pinnacle of International Rugby League since 1954. Now contested every four years, with a series of qualification tournaments leading up to it, the RLWC is open to all full and affiliate members of the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF).

In 2021, for the first time, the Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair competitions will be staged in a single, celebratory event, culminating in an epic Finals Weekend to crown the champions of each. 

The Rugby League World Cup is the pinnacle event in international rugby league. Like no other form of the game, players compete with the pride of their nation at the heart of every performance. 

In 2021 more teams than ever will compete to be crowned Rugby League World Cup Champions with four pools of four nations competing in up to 14 stadia across England.

All quarter finalists from the preceding World Cup (RLWC2017) automatically qualify to compete. The remaining eight nations are decided by a qualification process based on global regions determined by the Rugby League International Federation. See below. All competing teams will be known by November 2019.

New rivalries will form, old ones will play out with vigour. Pre-game Hakas, Sipi Taus and hymns will set the stage for clashes of epic proportions. 

England 2021 is set to be an unmissable event!
