A thrilling and unique Rugby League World Cup competition. Congratulations to the Australian men's team, the Australian women's team, and the English wheelchair team. All worthy winners of this year’s tournament.

We would also like to congratulate the tournament organisers for delivering such an expansive, inclusive and record breaking tournament.

Rugby League World Cup 2025

The 17th Rugby League World Cup

The 2025 tournament in France was to consist of four versions of the World Cup format; men's, women's, wheelchair and youth. 128 matches in 40 venues from early October to mid-November 2025.

However, due to withdrawal of government support and a lack of confirmed funding, France pulled out in May 2023.

A new 2025 Host is yet to be appointed.
