23rd October 2019

With two years to go until the start of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup in England, preparations are well underway to make the hosting of the tournament a success.

The Club Doncaster Sports Park will host three group stage games, and Dons chief executive Carl Hall says the hard work is continuing behind the scenes.

He said: “We put a lot of work into securing the games in Doncaster and we had to make sure our bid went worldwide to show how serious we were.

“I’ve mentioned since then that the work must continue because although the games don’t start until 2021, for us the World Cup has already started.”

With Martin Rowlands having been appointed as World Cup legacy officer and a steering group meeting taking place on October 23, Hall is hoping to help grow the sport of rugby league within the borough of Doncaster.

He added: “The key for us is to try and fill the stadium with Doncaster people and to do that we have to promote the sport within the community.

“The role of the legacy officer will aim to do that and attract the younger firstly into playing rugby league and then watching it on a more frequent basis as well.”
