The organisers of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup have invited members of the public to volunteer to be part of the RLWC2021 volunteer work force.
The tournament, hosted in England, is set to be the biggest World Cup yet, with men’s, women’s and wheelchair sides all competing for the biggest prize in international rugby league.
Volunteers will be essential to the smooth running of operations throughout the tournament, and will likely have roles ranging from meet and greet at train stations to flag bearers.
Those who register their interest in joining the team will also have the opportunity to suggest a title for the volunteers, with previous names including ‘Team 13’ and ‘The Cup Squad’.
The top suggestions will be put to a public vote, with the person responsible for the winning name receiving a pair of VIP tickets to the tournament opener at St James’ Park in Newcastle.
“Volunteers will be the backbone of what will become the biggest Rugby League World Cup ever,” said RLWC2021 Chief Executive Jon Dutton.
“Previous global events have shown just how integral volunteers are to the smooth running of a tournament. Our volunteers will be the first faces people see when they arrive at stadiums and train stations up and down the country so it’s vital they get a warm welcome.
“There will be plenty of opportunities for people to get involved both in 2020 and 2021 and I look forward to welcoming people from all backgrounds and experiences to the team.”
