Sarah Elston - Host Marketing Executive
What attracted you to work for RLWC2021?
Having been around Rugby League for the past 20 years, the opportunity to work alongside a team whose ambition is to deliver the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup to date is something that I am honoured to have the opportunity to play a part in. I’m passionate about bringing Rugby League to new and diverse audiences and I am looking forward to contributing to what is set to be a world class tournament.
What’s your favourite sporting moment?
Since being a teenager, I’ve been lucky enough to attend some of the most exciting Rugby League events. My favourite moment ever is undoubtedly the absolute privilege of walking from the dark and into the light of Wembley Stadium, before the gates were open to fans. I remember the moment in 2013 when I couldn’t believe how quiet and spectacular the stadium looked, it was a great feeling. Away from Rugby League, my favourite sporting event that I’ve ever attended has to be when West Indies Cricket team played Antigua at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium. We were on holiday in Antigua at the time and it was really special for us to head over and watch them play.
