RUGBY LEAGUE World Cup 2021 launches schools and club competition to be part of the tournament’s three finals
Rugby League World Cup 2021 has launched an exciting competition for young people to play a central role in the tournament’s three finals which will take place in Manchester on 18 and 19 November 2022.
‘RLWC Finals Squad’ is open to schools or clubs and all participants have to do to enter is post a short video, photograph or message on social media tagging in RLWC2021 and telling us why they want to be part of the three finals in Manchester.
Rugby League World Cup 2021, Chief Executive, Jon Dutton, said: “Young people have already played an enormous part in this fantastic tournament, whether that be helping us create our wonderful mascot RugBee, using our online education resources, or being part of our trailblazing Social Impact program.
“A key objective of RLWC2021 has been to inspire the next generation of rugby league players, fans and volunteers and we now want to give some lucky winners the chance to be part of our finals weekend in Manchester which will see the men’s, women’s and wheelchair winners crowned.
“I am really looking forward to seeing boundless creativity as the entries come in over the next couple of weeks.”
There are four opportunities to be involved at each of the three finals at Manchester Central or Old Trafford:
- Walk out with finalist A (Primary schools or RL club up to Under 11)
- Walk out with finalist B (Primary schools or RL Club up to under 11)
- Wave Nations Shard for Team A (Secondary school or RL club aged 12-16)
- Wave Nations Shard for Team B (Secondary school or RL club aged 12-16)
The competition closes for entries on October 7 and the winning participants will each receive a ticket to the tournament final they are part of. A further two tickets for adult chaperones and a contribution from RLWC2021 towards the costs of coach travel to the match will also be provided.
The winners will be drawn by a RLWC2021 big name and will be announced on 13 October
