York is a Candidate City to host the Rugby League World Cup. We're backing a bid to bring world class sport to the city in 2021.
The Rugby League World Cup is the pinnacle of international rugby league and for the first time in 2021 England is hosting the Men's, Women's and Wheelchair competitions at the same time in a single, celebratory event.
York isn't a stranger to hosting top class events and this is a great opportunity to once again showcase York to the world.
We are hoping to:
- Host six pool games and one semi-final of the Women's World Cup
- Host four women's teams and one men's team in our amazing city
We've partnered a number of organisations to #LineUp4York and bring the cup to the city, including:
- University of York
- York St John University
- Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL)
- York City Knights
- Make it York
