Five Holmes Miller designed stadiums have been chosen today to be hosts for the Rugby League World Cup England 2021.

  • Stadium for West Cumbria in Workington will host 3 men’s group games.

  • York Community Stadium will host a women’s group game and both women’s semi-finals.

  • Ricoh Arena in Coventry will host 1 men’s group game.

  • KCOM stadium in Hull will host 1 men’s group game and 1 men’s quarter final.

  • Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough will host 1 men’s group game.

York Stadium is currently under construction while Stadium for West Cumbria has just been submitted for planning.  This is great news for Allerdale Borough Council and City of York Council for having the vision to develop these venues.

York Community Stadium is due to open in late 2019, while the Stadium for West Cumbria is due to open in the spring of 2021.

Both venues will provide community and sporting legacy well beyond the World Cup.
