We are working with Middlesbrough Council, Middlesbrough Football Club and with the Rugby League Association aiming to bring a significant part of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup to Tees Valley.
The Rugby League is seeking, through excellence and innovation, engagement and growth, to build over time much stronger support for Rugby League in the North East, beyond the North West where it currently has strength as a participatory sport. It will offer a legacy fund to help build the sport from grass roots in the region successful in its bid to host part of the games. The BBC will broadcast all games of the RLWC2021, and Tees Valley will bid to host both games and international teams to secure part of the event, with other partners and sponsors sought to support our bid.
