Warrington Wolves’ Halliwell Jones Stadium has been chosen to host a man’s World Cup quarter-final.
Three men’s group game matches, as well as the PDRL tournament, had already been announced to take place in the town and now one Men’s quarter-final will also be played at our home ground on Sunday 6 November, 2.30pm KO.
The quarter final will consist of the winner of Group D and runner-up of Group A and had previously been scheduled to take place at the University of Bolton Stadium.
Warrington Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Tony Higgins, said:
“It’s brilliant news that alongside our three men’s group fixtures, Warrington is now also set to host a men’s quarter final game as part of the Rugby League World Cup.
“Being selected to host this additional game is important recognition of the significant role Warrington has to play in this year’s tournament, and we look forward to welcoming even more fans to our town later this year for a spectacular fixture that will play out in front of a packed Halliwell Jones stadium.”
