RLWC2021 reveal the Power Squad kit for volunteers

Rugby League World Cup 2021 has revealed the kit that will be worn by their Power Squad during the tournament which will kick off on 15 October at St James’ Park. During the exciting launch video, our colleague and Rugby League World Cup Ambassador Oliver Thomason can be seen modelling the new kit.

The Power Squad is a select team of over a thousand volunteers, which also includes our very own Inclusive Volunteers, who will have a variety of roles throughout the 61 fixtures of the tournament across Operations, Spectator Services and Digital and Media.

Volunteers have been carefully selected through a targeted recruitment process which emphasised local knowledge and expertise in the required areas to ensure the team is ready to help provide the best matchday experience possible for attending spectators. Throughout the tournament the Power Squad will complete an impressive total of 18,000 volunteer hours

Rugby League World Cup 2021, Chief Executive, Jon Dutton said: “We’re delighted to unveil the kit that will be worn by our Power Squad throughout the course of the tournament.

“Our Power Squad are passionate and hardworking and care deeply about the success of the tournament. They will play a pivotal role in making Rugby League World Cup 2021 a success and we wanted to give them a kit that they feel proud to wear.

“We are really looking forward to working with them and I want to say a big thank you to them for their efforts already in the preparation for the first match at St James’ Park on 15 October.”

The kits have been created by Kappa in partnership with Rugby League World Cup 2021 and The National Lottery. We’re excited to see our Inclusive Volunteers donning this exciting new kit, ready to take on their important roles throughout the tournament.
