The Rugby League World Cup 2021 comes to the shores of England this autumn as organisers get set to deliver the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments simultaneously for the first time in the history of the competition.

Manchester United are proud to host the men’s and women’s double-header final of the Rugby League World Cup 2021 this year (rescheduled from 2021), here at the Theatre of Dreams.

The matches will take place at Old Trafford on 19 November 2022, with the women’s game kicking-off at 13:15 GMT and the men’s game following, at 16:00 GMT.

We only have a limited number of tickets for this unmissable double-header event, with both games included in your ticket. Tickets can be purchased here, but hurry, they are selling fast!


Five weeks of world-class sporting action begins at St James’ Park, Newcastle on October 15 before Headingley Stadium, Leeds opens the women’s tournament on November 1 and a double-header at the Copper Box, London kicks off the wheelchair event on November 3.

Old Trafford will again be front and centre of sporting history when the Theatre of Dreams hosts the double header men’s and women’s finals on Saturday 19 November.

Manchester will create further sporting history that weekend when Manchester Central in the heart of the city centre hosts the wheelchair final on Friday 18 November.

We’re excited to welcome the Rugby League World Cup 2021 to Old Trafford and be part of this historic weekend, as the city prepares to host the three finals in weekend celebration of Rugby League.
