Have your say: Are the host venues for the 2021 World Cup good or bad?

The host venues for the 2021 World Cup have been announced and we want to know what you think of them. 

The host towns, cities and venues for the tournament have been confirmed, with a government target of hosting at least 80% of the tournament.

A semi-final will be played at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, making rugby league the only sport other than football to have been played at the ground.

The opening ceremony will take place at St James’ Park in Newcastle, the home of Magic Weekend for the past four years.

The new host of Magic Weekend, Anfield, will host a marquee quarter-final tie, while the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool.

Other football grounds making the list include Bolton’s University of Bolton Stadium, which last year hosted the Challenge Cup semi-final double header, the Ricoh Arena in Coventry and the Riverside Stadium in Middlesbrough.

There are six Yorkshire venues, including Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium, the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield, the KCOM Stadium in Hull, Elland Road and Headingley in Leeds, Bramall Lane in Sheffield and York’s new community stadium.

Core rugby league venues at St Helens, Warrington and Leigh will be used, as will the new planned stadium development in Workington.

We want to know what you think about the venues…
