Publication of Rugby League World was suspended at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020.
Since then, we have constantly been assessing when would be the best time to resume, taking into account the many uncertainties along the way, both within our sport and also the publishing industry and retail market as a result of the ongoing impact of the global pandemic.
Following the official end of the majority of Covid restrictions in the UK over the summer months of 2021, we were hoping to resume publication to coincide with the Rugby League World Cup in October, but as the tournament has now been postponed until 2022, our plans have unfortunately had to change once again.
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel!
Our aim is now to relaunch Rugby League World in February 2022, to coincide with the start of the new domestic season in the UK and to play our full part in the countdown to the rescheduled World Cup.
We appreciate the patience and support of our loyal readers and subscribers during the break in publishing which has lasted much longer than we ever anticipated at the outset. We will honour the value of all existing subscriptions in full when we resume, and subscriptions will restart automatically, but we understand that circumstances may have changed for some of our customers. Therefore, any subscribers who would like to receive a refund on their outstanding subscription in the meantime, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and full postal address, or write to Rugby League World, League Publications Ltd, Wellington House, Briggate, Brighouse, West Yorkshire, HD6 1DN.
