Anfield Stadium to provide world famous stage for Mental Fitness Match

We’re demonstrating our commitment to making a positive social impact by dedicating the double header involving a men’s RLWC2021 quarter final and an England women’s match at Anfield Stadium on November 13, 2021 to promoting good mental fitness.

Through the tournament’s innovative partnership with Movember and Rugby League Cares, the double header will be branded the Mental Fitness Match Day. The men’s quarter final at the world-famous home of Liverpool FC could potentially feature England as well as the scheduled England women’s team match against Canada women.

The Mental Fitness Match Day will take place during Movember’s annual fundraising campaign in November 2021 and will raise awareness of the outstanding work the organisation will have delivered along with Rugby League Cares by harnessing the global scale and reach of RLWC2021 to make a difference to communities in England.

RLWC2021 Mental Fitness Ambassador, Robbie Hunter-Paul holds a long affiliation of championing mental fitness within Rugby League. Hunter-Paul said:

“The programme is designed to deliver impactful training to the next generation of stars. To have started that journey now a year out from the tournament just goes to show what is possible in the next 12 months and beyond.

“Rugby League’s culture has always been about ‘looking after one another’ but this training also shows how important it is to look after your own mental fitness and I am extremely proud to be part of the brilliant group of trainers delivering the sessions.”
Jon Dutton, RLWC2021 Chief Executive, said:

“Our objective from day one was to stage a unique tournament which not only delivers breath-taking action on the field but also leaves a lasting and positive legacy in communities.
