This time next year, the Rugby League World Cup will be reaching its climax with the finals in Manchester.
And to mark the milestone, the tournament organisers have confirmed the full revised 61 match schedule for the tournament in 2022 – including eight matches to be played in York.
They include two semi finals.
They are the same fixtures that would have been played at the LNER Community Stadium this year, if it hadn’t been postponed due to ongoing concerns about the Covid-19 pandemic. Tickets are now on sale.
