Rugby League Planet - 2029 Rugby League World Cup

 

2029 RUGBY LEAGUE WORLD CUP OVERVIEW

Host Nation - The host nation is still to be confirmed.

Number of Teams - 16

2029 World Cup Snapshot - The 2029 Rugby League World Cup will be the 18th instalment of the oldest Rugby World Cup tournament on the planet. 

The host nation is still to be decided with the bidding process not expected to start until 2020. Much will hinge on the success of the Rugby League World Cup in the USA and Canada in 2025. If the Tournament is successful we might see the tournament hosted across Europe for the very first time. It will come down to the progress of the many European nations developing the sport.

Sixteen teams will more than likely participate in the 2029 Tournament. The participating nations will be split up into four groups of four along the same lines as the 2025 Rugby League World Cup.

2029 Rugby League World Cup Group Format

The format will follow the same lines as the 2025 Rugby League World Cup.

Group One - 4 teams

Group Two - 4 teams

Group Three - 4 teams

Group Four - 4 teams

2029 Rugby League World Cup Finals Format

The finals system used in the 2025 Rugby League World Cup will more then likely be used.

The teams that finish in the top 2 in each group would qualify for the quarter finals. The winner of each quarter final match would then qualify for the semi-finals.

The winner of both semi-finals will play each other a week later in the World Cup Final.
