Rugby League World Cup 2021 has celebrated a record-breaking year of hugely encouraging sales.

It included the first-ever public ticket ballot, as well as ground-breaking social impact in what will be the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup in history.

The tournament culminates in a showcase double header final at Old Trafford, Manchester on November 27, 2021.

The unique RLWC2021, with men’s, women’s and wheelchair events being held simultaneously, has also partnered with Cazoo in the biggest deal in the tournament’s history which saw the UK online car retailer announced as RLWC2021’s Principal Partner.

The confidence shown in the tournament, with the optimism of fans returning to stadia in 2021, has shone through in the ticket sales which have exceeded the expectations of organisers who have also honoured the bravery of frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic with 20,021 free tickets being allocated to key health and care workers.
