"Our aim is to bring professional Rugby League to one of the most exciting cities in the world."
Bid lead, Ricky Wilby
By extending the transatlantic model to New York, a truly exciting, dynamic and bucket-list tourist destination, we are confident that this will spark the imagination of the UK home crowds and bring even greater appeal and potential to the UK sport.
The branding is as iconic as New York City itself and includes a number of references to the city within its design and colours.
The passion, enthusiasm and commitment of the people involved in the New York City Rugby League bid is what has driven the bid this far, and is the reason why Rugby League will be played in New York City.
“It is clear to see that through the process of globalisation, the world is getting smaller, driving greater opportunity and endless possibility. ”
