Wales Rugby League (WRL) has launched an #InLeagueTogether campaign to celebrate rugby league’s proud history in Wales and the ongoing vision to create opportunities for everyone.
#InLeagueTogether will be WRL’s new hashtag ahead of Rugby League World Cup (RLWC) 2021 this autumn, highlighting how inclusivity and equality are a key part of the governing body’s strategy to fight discrimination and provide accessible sport for everyone to enjoy.
There are now more opportunities for people from all parts of communities to get involved with rugby league in Wales than ever before, whether it be men and women, girls and boys from U8s, wheelchair, physical disability rugby league (PDRL), learning disability rugby league (LDRL) or masters.
#InLeagueTogether will also reflect on rugby league’s long history in Wales, producing some of the finest players the world has seen and giving people the opportunity to play sport at the highest level no matter their background.
WRL chief executive Gareth Kear said: “Our previous hashtag was #FutureIsBright and the future is still very bright for the sport in Wales.
“We wanted to change our focus a little and use #InLeagueTogether because that sums up what we’re all about. We want everyone in Wales to feel like they can get involved with rugby league in whatever way they want – as a player, coach, match official, volunteer or fan.
“Our sport has a proud history of inclusivity and equality going back 125 years and that’s still at the heart of everything we do at Wales Rugby League.
“RLWC2021 and beyond provides us with a fantastic opportunity to build on the momentum we’ve made in recent years and introduce new people to the amazing sport of rugby league.”
