A warm Warrington welcome to the Kumuls!

Rugby for all

Warrington has a unique personality, where community, warmth and friendliness sit side by side with ambition and enterprise.

This spirit is made clear through the work of the Wolves Foundation, who are visionaries in pioneering physical disability in Rugby League.

Our credentials of being a town that works and supports everyone is further strengthened by the work of Warrington Disability Partnership, which hosts the annual Disability Awareness Day – the world’s largest non-profit disability exhibition

And, after Warrington Wolves was crowned the first club world champions of Physical Disability Rugby League in 2018, it is fitting that Warrington will once again be able to showcase a world first by hosting a showcase PDRL tournament.

Warrington will play its part again

Samoa vs Fiji

Samoa vs Fiji in 2013

Many of us will remember the World Cup in 2013, when Warrington hosted the infectiously enthusiastic Samoan national team. And those who were at the Halliwell Jones stadium to watch the epic clash between Samoa and New Zealand will testify that Warrington has witnessed some of Rugby League’s best sporting memories.

The World Cup in 2021 will again deliver some inspirational moments that will become highlights of the sporting calendar and beyond. Warrington will, once again, welcome world-class athletes, playing an incredible sport.

We are, and always will be, a town in love with rugby league. Bring on 2021.
