Warrington is a Rugby League town – it is in our DNA. And in 2021, Warrington will be playing its part in the Rugby League World Cup 2021.
We’re delighted that for next year’s tournament, we will be hosting the Papua New Guinea men’s team.
Many of us will remember the World Cup in 2013, when Warrington hosted the infectiously enthusiastic Samoan national team. And those who were at the Halliwell Jones stadium to watch the epic clash between Samoa and New Zealand will testify that Warrington has witnessed some of Rugby League’s best sporting memories.
The World Cup in 2021 will again deliver some inspirational moments that will become highlights of the sporting calendar and beyond. Warrington will, once again, welcome world-class athletes, playing an incredible sport.
Plan your tournament visit to Warrington
Our town has bags to offer. Whether it’s enjoying the beautiful Walton Hall and Gardens, exploring cultural gems like Warrington Museum and Art Gallery or catching a show at the Pyramid and Parr Hall, there truly is something for everyone.
What unites our town, however, is our sport. Rugby League is the heartbeat of Warrington – and you feel its presence wherever you are. The Warrington Wolves are one of the founding members of the Northern Rugby Football Union and are a top-flight staple.
Generations of Warringtonians will have their own sporting memories to share. And, with the World Cup coming back to our town in 2021, Warrington has the chance to create new Rugby League stories that will be shared on the global stage. We are going to play a special role in delivering the biggest, best and most inclusive Rugby League World Cup ever.
We are, and always will be, a town in love with rugby league. Bring on 2021.
