RLWC2021 - An Iconic Event

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 and you can now register to receive the latest updates here.

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 host country is England and Doncaster has been confirmed as the host of three group stage matches at the home of Doncaster Rugby League Club - The Keepmoat Stadium.

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. See the tournament draw in the image carousel above.

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.
