Rugby League World Cup set for Old Trafford

Tuesday 16 November 2021 14:00

The road to the rescheduled Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021) begins this week as tournament organisers confirm the 61-match schedule will be revealed in full on Friday 19 November at 09:00 GMT.

The tournament will kick off at St James’ Park, Newcastle on 15 October 2022 when England's men take on Samoa and will culminate in spectacular fashion at Old Trafford on 19 November 2022 with the men’s and women’s double-header final.
In a unique and busy year of international sport and events, only five RLWC2021 fixtures (on four matchdays) 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.
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. 

General admission tickets and hospitality for all 61 matches will be back on sale from 09:00 GMT on 19 November in line with the full schedule reveal.
