Rugby League World Cup 2017 headed to Darwin

The Northern Territory Government has secured a Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) 2017 Quarter-Final to be played in Darwin, on Friday 17 November 2017.

The world class match could feature the Australian Kangaroos with the likes of Cameron Smith, Greg Inglis and coach Mal Meninga, who are sure to attract plenty of attention during their time in the Top End.

The nationally-televised broadcast is set to shine the sporting spotlight on the Northern Territory, while boosting the tourism and hospitality industry during the Wet Season.

The RLWC will involve 14 teams playing 28 games over five weeks from 27 October until 2 December 2017. All will vie to be crowned world champions, in what is a pinnacle event in international Rugby League.

In addition to playing matches in Australia and New Zealand, there will be three pool matches played in Papua New Guinea.
