Sophie Pontifex - Head of Sponsorship
What attracted you to working for RLWC2021?
There’s nothing quite like the excitement and pride you get delivering a world class sports event and seeing the way it brings people together. To work for the biggest sporting event in the UK next year, especially one with such ambition and focus on inclusion, was therefore something I knew I had to be a part of.
What is your favourite sporting memory?
As a fan, there are far too many to choose from; Jonny’s drop goal, Murray’s first Wimbledon, Moura’s hat-trick and England winning the cricket by the barest of margins! Career wise, it would have to be the World Surf League Tahiti Pro or the Rugby World Cup in Japan and finally as a competitor, I'd have to say being Surrey under-8 short tennis champion was a real highlight.
