Rugby League World Cup 2021 - our bid to be a host

We are bidding to host the Rugby League World Cup in 2021. And we need you to help us. Use the hashtag #BacktheBid in any social media and let's bring the World Cup to West Cumbria.

We are Allerdale. We are Rugby League

Allerdale is the heartland of rugby league with professional and local clubs. With Workington Town based in Workington, this would be the natural location to host the Rugby League World Cup.

Bidding for the tournament will also mean:

  • more interest in the sport
  • boosting health and wellbeing for our residents
  • giving a boost for local business
  • improved local sporting facilities in the town for everyone, building on the success of the new leisure centre Workington
  • promoting the sport to women and disabled people
  • promoting Allerdale as a great place to visit
