Your chance to be a part of it!
Organisers of the Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) 2013
today announced that the deadline for volunteers has been extended until August

demand for information on the volunteer roles and the organisers want to allow
additional time, so that those that have not already done so can get a chance to
put their names forward.
Operations Director Jon Dutton, said: "The feel good factor from London 2012 has
been huge and without a doubt the Games Makers are real stars. We want to ensure
that people who have missed out on the Olympic and Paralympic Games or who have
been unable to volunteer are given a chance to do so for the next global
sporting event in their home town or city. We have some great opportunities for
people to be involved in RLWC2013 and we have been extremely impressed by the
volume of interest at the first stage of the process.”

Councillor Barrie Grunewald, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for

seen from London 2012 the atmosphere of these global events are terrific. I am
sure that anyone who volunteers for the rugby world cup will get a tremendous
amount out of it and one they will never forget.”
