The 2025 Rugby League World Cup will be the seventeenth staging of the Rugby League World Cup. The tournament is expected to include 16 men's teams as well as a women's competition, the same as is planned for 2021.

On 20 November 2016 it was announced that the North America bid had won the rights to the 2025 World Cup.[1]

Host selection

After the U.S. lost the 2021 Rugby League World Cup bid to England, the Rugby League International Federation (RLIF) recommended that the United States and Canada should host the 2025 event after an impressive bid by Moore Sports International.[2] The RLIF Congress reviewed that recommendation at a meeting in November 2016.[3] On 20 November 2016, it was announced that the North America bid had won the rights to host the 2025 World Cup. This is set to be the first time the tournament is held outside of Europe and Australasia.

Cities and venues

Paul O'Keefe, president of the Canada Rugby League Association, has stated that he expects two or three Canadian cities will host matches - probably Toronto and Vancouver, and possibly a city in Alberta.[4] The U.S. bidders Moore Sports International have stated that they plan to use stadiums that are home to National Football League and Major League Soccer. However, both the NFL and MLS play matches during October-November, when the Rugby League World Cup is usually held.

Regardless of the NFL and MLS conflict venues in Houston, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Los Angeles and San Francisco can become available to meet the needs of the tournament.[]
