2021 World Cup Snapshot - The 2021 Rugby League World Cup will be the 16th instalment of the oldest Rugby World Cup tournament on the planet. 

In April 2015 the UAE Rugby League announced plans to bid for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup. Their plans went astray when the national UAE sporting body placed a ban on Rugby League in the country. 

In October 2016 It was announced that England would be the 2021 Rugby League World Cup hosts after fending off a strong bid from the USA and Canada.

Sixteen teams will participate in the 2021 Tournament. The participating nations will be split up into four groups of four along the same lines as the 2000 Rugby League World Cup.

2021 Rugby League World Cup Group Format

The format will follow the same lines as the 2000 Rugby League World Cup.

Group One - 4 teams

Group Two - 4 teams

Group Three - 4 teams

Group Four - 4 teams

2021 Rugby League World Cup Finals Format

The finals system used in the 2000 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.
