Following a clash of events at the University of Bolton Stadium, the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington will now host the final Men’s Quarter-Final on Sunday 6 November.
In recognition of any possible disruption this switch may cause, the RLWC2021 is committed to ensuring ticket holders have options in respect to refunds or transferring tickets and customers who have purchased tickets have been notified directly by email.
Warrington Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Tony Higgins, said: “It’s brilliant news that alongside our three men’s group fixtures, Warrington is now also set to host a men’s quarter final game as part of the Rugby League World Cup.
“Being selected to host this additional game is important recognition of the significant role Warrington has to play in this year’s tournament, and we look forward to welcoming even more fans to our town later this year for a spectacular fixture that will play out in front of a packed Halliwell Jones stadium.”
RLWC2021 Chief Executive, Jon Dutton, said: “We are pleased that the match will now be staged at the Halliwell Jones Stadium and we are very excited to be taking one of the biggest matches of the competition to a first class rugby league venue. We thank everyone involved for their support in achieving this solution so quickly.
“We are also very mindful of wanting to make sure that existing ticket holders are not adversely impacted by this switch and will be contacting everyone shortly to see how we can make sure that we can minimise disruption as much as possible.”
Ticket holders will be able to transfer their ticket to the match at the new venue or receive a refund if they would prefer.
Customers who have purchased tickets have been notified directly by email this morning and will receive further details in due course.
