A Lasting Legacy
Rugby League is a way of life for communities across the North of England. It has rare access to hard-to-reach groups in some of the most deprived areas. Hosting the RLWC2021 will give the sport an even more powerful platform from which to connect with these people and improve their economic and social wellbeing. RLWC2021 will amplify these programmes for host partners that will see a long lasting legacy developed for the sport through the Inspired by RLWC2021 programme.
The Inspired by RLWC2021 programme will encompass three key strands:
During RLWC2021, citizens in our host locations will have the opportunity to get involved in the tournament in a unique and exciting way.
Our targeted recruitment efforts will encourage everyone taking part to continue helping community clubs once the tournament ends.
More information on the RLWC2021 volunteer program will be provided in due course.
