With the Rugby League World Cup just three weeks away, the NSWRL in conjunction with the NRL will host one of Australia’s biggest multicultural Rugby League carnivals, the Blue Harmony Cup, at Macquarie University tomorrow (Saturday, 7 October).

Australian-based heritage teams from nations including Lebanon, Italy, Tonga, Samoa, the Cook Islands, Africa United and Australian Indigenous communities will travel from all parts of NSW to compete in the tournament.

For the first time, Wheelchair Rugby League and Push ‘n’ Power Rugby League will run alongside the Under-16 and Under-18 Boys and Girls competitions, featuring more than 600 non-elite Rugby League players across 46 teams.

The Blue Harmony Cup, a celebration of cultural diversity, is a platform for non-elite players to showcase their skills and build healthy relationships through Rugby League. Graduates from past Blue Harmony Cups include Roosters forward Kane Evans and Panthers outside back Dallin Watene-Zelezniak.

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said the Blue Harmony Cup is an opportunity to celebrate cultural diversity.

“The Blue Harmony Cup is just another reason why Rugby League is truly a great sport for all. It’s an event that we look forward to every year,” Trodden said.

“The tournament is about celebrating cultural diversity and it’s a wonderful advertisement for our game. Tournaments like the Blue Harmony Cup produce some extraordinary talent, while celebrating the many cultures that Rugby League comprises.”

The Blue Harmony Cup will feature a range of family-friendly activities and attractions including heritage-inspired dance performances and cultural food trucks.

Event: 2017 Blue Harmony Cup
Date: Saturday, 7 October, 2017
Venue: Macquarie University Sports Field, Corner of Culloden Road and Talavera Road, Macquarie Park
Time: 9am tournament commences. Grand Finals: 6.05pm (U16 Girls), 6.30pm (U16 Boys), 6.55pm (U18 Girls), 7.20pm (U18 Boys)
