Foundation to host Three Lions Week

To celebrate the Rugby League World Cup, the York RLFC Foundation will host a Three Lions Week in association with the RFL this week to encourage more people to get involved in rugby league.

We will be showcasing what our foundation has to offer with a series of free events. Three Lions Week forms part of the InspiredBy campaign linking the RFL with the RLWC2021 with the aim of driving up participation in rugby league.

The Rugby League World Cup is set to be the most inclusive tournament ever in the sport's history with the Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair competitions being staged at the same time.

If you would like to know more about the Three Lions week, please get in touch with our foundation team by emailing
