RLIF CONGRESS SUPPORTS BOARD RECOMMENDATION FOR RLWC2025


Following the recommendation of the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) Board to conditionally award the 2025 World Cup to North America the RLIF Congress, at its annual general meeting held in Liverpool on 17 November, endorsed the Board's recommendation.

RLIF Chairman Nigel Wood commented:

"The award of the 2025 World Cup to North America is a historic moment in the global development of Rugby League. The USA and Canada provides world class stadia allied to a significant multi cultural population which made the bid so persuasive. It is exciting that our sport is expanding into a new destination for our premier event the World Cup and we will work with our members in the USA and Canada and Moore Sports International to expand the presence of our sport in these countries during the lead in to the 2025 World Cup."

"The Board will now work with Moore Sports International to complete the due diligence and exchange of contracts to complete the award."
