Wheelchair

A truly inclusive game, for all


In 2022, for the first time, the wheelchair competition will be part of the Rugby League World Cup main event. It will be part of the same brand, with the same profile and will receive the same level of support.

Wheelchair rugby league is genuinely the most inclusive sport of all - not solely a disability sport, as non-disabled people are welcome to compete as well, and both men and women can play in the same team.

Rugby League Wheelchair World Cup 2021 will be contested by eight teams with an epic opening clash between England and Australia.
