RugbyLeague World Cup 2013 Empowers Fans With Unique Forum

Rugby League World Cup 2013 and Allerdale Borough Council is searching for a vocal, local fan - representing Allerdale to be part of a new initiative for the tournament.

The representative will also be rewarded with a pair of VIP seats at the final of Rugby League World Cup 2013 and tickets to all the games played at the nearest ground.

The Fans Local Advisory Group (FLAG) has been created to give fans a voice in the planning for Rugby League World Cup 2013 and will include representatives from all the communities involved in games.

FLAG will meet regularly with tournament organisers to share and discuss their views and will be encouraged to maintain a regular dialogue through social media.

To become the Allerdale fan, Allerdale Borough Council is asking members of the public to email explaining in 150 words why they would be a great fan to represent their area in the national RLWC fans local advisory group and help promote the event in West Cumbria.

The competition will be judged by Allerdale Borough Council’s Sports Development Officer, Times and Star Chief Sports Reporter John Fuller and a representative from Cumbria Rugby Football League.

Councillor Mark Fryer, Executive member with responsibility for sports development, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for one lucky fan from Allerdale to play a unique role in creating the best Rugby League World Cup ever.”

The 14-team tournament will be hosted by England and Wales with games also in France and Ireland.

More than 500,000 spectators are expected to attend the 28 matches with a further 20 million people watching on TV around the world.

Rugby League World Cup 2013 General Manager, Sally Bolton, said: “This Tournament is about putting the fans first and we feel that FLAG will provide a genuine platform to influence the creation of the best Rugby League World Cup in history.”
