Rugby League World Cup 2021 capital grants programme

“Created By” is the Rugby League World Cup 2021 capital grants programme. It will fund facilities and equipment that help to create accessible and welcoming environments for rugby league. Clubs, local authorities, community organisations or education establishments can apply. The funder is also keen to work with new organisations that think rugby league could really benefit their community.
