Samantha Richards - Partnership Executive
What attracted you to work for RLWC2021?
The RLWC practically promises to be the most inclusive tournament that sport has ever seen, with men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournament being hosted as one. That in itself is a huge achievement for sport and to say that I will be apart of that is amazing and attracted me to this role hugely.
What’s your favourite sporting moment?
For me I would have to say the 2019 Women’s World Cup was hugely memorable for me, it was the first time I had travelled to another country to follow the Lionesses, I was present for a few of their group stage games, and then flew back to France to watch their semi-final against USA. The score wasn’t positive but to see first-hand the atmosphere around two of the top teams in the world was amazing.
