Wheelchair

An iconic event

A truly inclusive game, for all


In 2021, for the first time ever, 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 the same level of support.

Wheelchair Rugby League is truly the most inclusive sport of all - not solely a disability sport, as able-bodied people are welcome to compete as well.

England 2021 will be contested by eight teams over 15 days, with the showpiece final at the M&S Bank Arena, Liverpool coinciding with the climax of the Men’s and Women’s events as part of an epic ‘Finals Weekend’.
