The bid, which is being run by Australian promoter Jason Moore and his company Moore Sports, is becoming a North America-wide proposal for the tournaement with the support of Canada Rugby League.
The bid is being managed by Australian outfit Moore Sports International, who see great potential in moving from a USA-only bid to a North America-wide proposal.
“This is the place (North America) to ignite the game,” John Paul Basile, Moore Sports’ Los Angeles-based vice president of strategy and business development, told The Province.
“It’s the fans who ultimately need to be fed. Part of Canadian culture is tied to where (rugby league) started.”
