Who should host the 2025 RLWC?

Recommended Posts

I think the best choice would be New Zealand we can't have Australia again. This would be a good driver for expansion into new heartlands.

1. This can also work in unasyn with the NRL's efforts of expanding RL in the Pacific.

2.New Zealand has the right infrastructure for the event.

3. Beautiful countries the fans will love it.

4. Fan's from the Australian and English heartlands would travel in numbers to New Zealand.

I'd like to see it shared between various southern hemisphere countries. Predominantly New Zealand and Australia, but in PNG too. Maybe New Zealand could be the designated main hosts with the final, but I don't think I'd expect them to host every single game.

France

Chance to build on the Catalan (and possibly Tolouse) involvement in Super League and to try re-build the status of the game over there. Not too far for British fans to travel and only the same for Australia and New Zealand as if they were coming to Britain.

Also maybe a chance to play a couple of games at Barcelona.

I think it should alternate between southern and northern hemisphere.

I'd have France as the designated main host in 2029, but supported by some matches in England, Wales, Ireland, Scotland.

Perhaps further down the line a USA/Canada bid could be considered (depending on how things go with Toronto etc.), but I think that's a fair time away at the moment.

Australia purposefully so I can have 6 months of English sporting heaven.

Summer: RU Lions tour to Oz (that's if agent Folau hasn't brought them down first)

August/September/October: NRL/Finals series

October/November: RLWC

November/December: Ashes tour
