WARRINGTON will learn which games it is set to host during the 2021 Rugby League World Cup next week.

The full scheduled of fixtures for next year’s World Cup will be revealed at 8am on Tuesday, July 21.

Three men’s games will be played at the Halliwell Jones Stadium during the showpiece tournament, while the town will also host the entirety of the Physical Disability Rugby League World Cup.

It was revealed last month the Warrington will be used as a base for the Papua New Guinea men’s team, and it is anticipated that at least one of the Kumuls’ group games will be played at the HJ.

The Pacific Islanders have been drawn alongside Wales, Tonga and the Cook Islands in Group D.

Warrington Borough Council chief executive Steven Broomhead said: “I’m looking forward to finding out what three fixtures we’ll have the opportunity to watch in Warrington.

Warrington Guardian:

“I’m crossing my fingers for games that were as competitive and spirited as the fixtures we witnessed in 2013.

“Any fixtures we get to host as part of RLWC 2021 will be an honour as we play our part on the world stage – and I’m hopeful that, whatever games we get, we’ll see a packed-out Halliwell Jones Stadium that will be sure to witness some world-class games.

“The closer we get to the tournament, the more palpable the excitement in and around Warrington – the announcement of what games we’ll be getting is the next milestone for our town’s journey to the tournament.

“Bring it on.”
