Rugby League World Cup 2013 is delighted to announce that the Manchester United Museum will stage an exhibition dedicated to international Rugby League, as Old Trafford prepares to stage the Rugby League World Cup Final.
The Old Trafford Museum and Stadium Tour draws hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world every year, and throughout October guests will also be given an insight into the rich and varied international history of the 13-a-side code.
The exhibition will include fascinating artefacts from the sport’s past, a detailed history of the Rugby League World Cup and information about the teams competing at this autumn’s tournament.
Museum Supervisor Gerry McDonagh said: “As a huge Rugby League fan myself, I’m really pleased to be involved in the staging of a special Rugby League exhibition here at the Manchester United Museum and Tour Centre.
“We’re looking forward to celebrating the fact that the world’s greatest players will all be here on our doorstep.”
Rugby League World Cup 2013 PR & Communications Manager Martin Johnston said: “As we pass the 100 days to the final milestone, it is fitting that we are today able to announce this fantastic partnership with Old Trafford, the home of the Rugby League World Cup Final.
“The Old Trafford Museum and Stadium Tour is a hugely popular destination for football fans and tourists from around the world, and this provides a great opportunity for our sport to showcase its rich international history to new audiences.
“We are also certain that Rugby League supporters will visit in their numbers, before returning to the stadium for the Rugby League World Cup Final on November 30.”
The Museum will be open every day between 9.30hrs and 17.00hrs (except football match-days) and we have a special offer for all Rugby fans wherever they are from.
