Potential Opportunities: 2021 Rugby League World Cup

Potential Opportunities: 2021 Rugby League World Cup

In January Kirklees Council led a bid to secure some involvement in the Rugby League World Cup in 2021. This bid was successful and Kirklees Council is pleased to have been awarded a men’s Quarter final match to be held at the John Smith’s Stadium.

Preparations for the tournament are now underway and the tournament organisers will be holding procurement workshops for interested businesses where 30 major contracts will be made available for bids. Any businesses interested in finding out more about these opportunities should sign up as soon as possible to the RLWC2021 procurement portal

As well as other business opportunities the organisers are keen that this tournament will be the most digitally connected entertainment event of 2021, and are keen to explore new, innovative and disruptive forms of digital design, engagement, marketing and communication to help achieve this ambition.

We are hopeful Kirklees businesses will benefit from this major event and from the districts involvement as one of the host venues. If you would like to discuss this opportunity further or need additional support then please contact us directly. Your point of contact is Martin Gonzalez:
