One year to go until Women’s World Cup 2021 kicks off at Emerald Headingley

Jodie Cunningham and Francesca Bunting

Today we are celebrating one year to go until the opening fixture of the Women’s World Cup in 2021!

In what promises to be a carnival atmosphere at Emerald Headingley Stadium, hosts England start their campaign against newcomers Brazil, followed by PNG v Canada as part of a double-header.

Eight nations will compete over 18 days at various incredible stadiums, including double-headers at Anfield and Old Trafford. Ticket prices are excellent value, starting from just £2.21 for concessions and £10 for adults.

As part of today’s celebrations, RLWC2021 are also delighted to announce that their official charity, Unicef UK, will receive 50p from every ticket transaction across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments. If you wish, you can add an additional donation amount when submitting your ticket application in the ballot. 

The funds received will help support vital projects in the UK and across the world.

One project will see RLWC2021 support UNICEF on its mission to break the cycle of violence against children in Brazil, with a focus on improving the quality of psychosocial services available to children. 


RLWC2021 tickets are in high demand across all the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments, particularly the Opening Matches and the Finals. Don’t miss out on these phenomenal matches as time is running out for you to beat the price increase for general sale in 2021.

With the RLWC2021 ticket refund guarantee, you can apply for tickets; safe in the knowledge that you will receive a full ticket refund if your RLWC2021 fixture is cancelled for any reason. Find out more on the Support for Supporters page.

If your application is successful, you will have the option to indicate your seat preference. You can let RLWC2021 know your preference by going to your account details page and telling them if you would like to sit on the side-line, behind the posts or if you have no preference. This will allow RLWC2021 to take this into consideration when RLWC2021 assign your seats next year.

RLWC2021 will notify you about whether your ticket application has been successful or not during the week commencing 23 November.
