Martin Offiah Named Rugby League World Cup 2013 Ambassador
February 22, 2013
Martin Offiah MBE will be the official ambassador for the Rugby League World Cup 2013 tournament that kicks off on October 26.
Offiah will play a vital role in promoting the tournament, viagra particularly in London ahead of the RLWC2013 semi-finals at Wembley Stadium.
Martin Offiah said: “I’m really excited to be on board with RLWC2013 and eager to do what I can to ensure the British public know this is the next major international sporting competition in this country after London 2012 and an event not to be missed.
“There will be some really exciting matches at RLWC2013 including a double-header featuring England v Australia and Wales v Italy with the opening ceremony at the Millennium Stadium; a semi-final double-header at Wembley and the showpiece event, the Rugby League World Cup final, taking place at Old Trafford.
“Tickets to the tournament are extremely well priced with 55% £20 or less, so it really is a great opportunity to see some extraordinary athletes going head to head in their pursuit for glory.”
Offiah, who is known to many as ‘Chariots,’ is a legend in Rugby League history and he added: “I can’t wait for RLWC2013 to start and I genuinely believe England have a realistic chance of winning.”
RLWC2013 General Manager, Sally Bolton, said: “Martin is one of the game’s great players and to have him supporting RLWC2013 is fantastic news for us.
“As a recognisable figure even outside Rugby League, he can help take the sport to a new audience. Our aim is to put on the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup ever and we are confident we can do that.”
