Vitality Netball World Cup 2019 are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the organisers of Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021), a world’s first for two sporting tournaments.
The unique agreement will see our two respective tournaments cooperate and share knowledge on a regular basis. The collaborative agreement will cover everything from operational matters, volunteer strategy, recruitment, legacy initiatives, marketing, the customer journey and women’s sport – all with a wider aim of working together to learn from and support each other.
RLWC2021 will come to England in two years’ time with 21 venues across the country – including Liverpool, the home of the Vitality Netball World Cup – hosting games across the men’s, women’s and wheelchair tournaments, which will take place at the same time.
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.”
Jon Dutton, Chief Executive of the RLWC2021, commented:
“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.”
