Newcastle confirmed for 2021 World Cup
Kingston Park in Newcastle has been confirmed as a venue for the 2021 World Cup, replacing Workington.
A new stadium in Workington was initially listed as a venue, but the project was deemed unsuitable by Allerdale Council back in July.
The home of the Newcastle Thunder rugby league and Falcons rugby union team is the second venue in the city to be confirmed, after St James’ Park was also confirmed for the opening ceremony and the first mens game.
All will be revealed in November when the draw is made.
