Rugby League World Cup 2021 is delighted to announce the creation of a new online Volunteer Portal where people with a passion for rugby league and getting involved in the grassroots of the sport can access a range of fantastic opportunities.

Volunteers are a key part of what makes major sporting events so successful and Rugby League World Cup 2021 will be no different with over a thousand volunteers set to play a key part in delivering 61 matches across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments which kicks off at St James’ Park on 15 October.

The portal is designed to make it as easy as possible for Community Clubs and Volunteers to be able to upload or access opportunities and will be part of the long-term impact the tournament leaves behind after the final ball has been kicked at Old Trafford on 19 November.

To gain access to these opportunities all people have to do is sign up to Rugby League World Cup 2021’s Volunteer Portal here:

The Volunteer Portal has a number of fantastic experiences available that people have been able to volunteer at, or can still sign up for, including:

– Physical Disability Rugby League Finals

– Women’s Grand Final Day

– RFL Girls Finals Day

– Southern Conference League Men’s Finals Day

– Wheelchair Grand Final Day

There is also an exciting opportunity for those looking to get involved with grounds maintenance with 100 places on a Level 1 Rugby League Grounds Maintenance course available.

Rugby League World Cup 2021, Director of Social Impact, Tracy Power, said:

“Rugby League World Cup is a tournament with a purpose and delivering our volunteer activities has been a key strand of the success of our Social Impact Programme and our volunteers will play a huge part in helping us deliver the tournament.

“We know that major sporting events such as this one inspire people to get involved in the sport, whether that be as a player, coach, fan or volunteer and it’s fantastic to be able to work with the Rugby Football League to offer these opportunities. We have launched the portal to make it as easy as possible for volunteers and community clubs to access or advertise opportunities and we hope this portal will be used for many years to come.

“We want our volunteers to have amazing experiences, that not only benefit the sport, but also make a positive difference to their lives and the communities in which they live. I would encourage anyone interested in getting involved to sign up to our new portal and take advantage of some of these incredible experiences.”
