RLWC2013 comes to Workington

Allerdale Borough Council is delighted to welcome the news that the Rugby League World Cup 2013 (RLWC2013) is coming to Workington.

The announcement today follows the decision by Allerdale Borough Council’s Executive to underwrite works at Derwent Park, Workington in order to secure the opportunity for West Cumbria to provide a venue for the event.

Councillor Alan Smith, Leader of the Council, said: “This is brilliant news! The Rugby League World Cup is a highly prestigious event, which will bring profile and trade to the area, and strongly aligns to the Council’s commitment to support festivals and events.

“When I heard that West Cumbria might not get any of the World Cup matches, I was determined that this Council would do everything it could to try and secure the events. I am delighted that our efforts have paid off and I thank all those involved, especially Workington Town RLFC and Britain’s Energy Coast, for pulling together with us to bring the Rugby League World Cup to West Cumbria.”
