The organisers of Rugby League World Cup 2021 have signed a co-operation agreement with Vitality Netball World Cup 2019.
The two international tournaments will cooperate and share knowledge on a regular basis. The agreement covers everything from operational matters, volunteer strategy, recruitment, legacy initiatives, marketing, the customer journey and women’s sport.
Jon Dutton, Chief Executive of the RLWC2021, said: “Since we started work on our project back in 2015, we have proactively met with a number of events to improve our knowledge and learn as much as possible, something I passionately believe in.
“We are delighted to formalise a MOU and to be working alongside the Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 team, who I am sure will deliver a world-class tournament this summer. We’ve already received some brilliant insight from their team, and we hope that some of our support can help them achieve their goals.”
Lindsay Impett, Event Director of the VNWC2019 said: “I’m thrilled that these two prestigious sports events are coming together in partnership to share insight so we can help each other achieve our event visions. By working closely together we’ll be building on our learnings and sharing knowledge, hopefully taking our respective sports from strength to strength.”
