A campaign to get 21,000 women and girls playing rugby league by 2021 has been launched.
The women’s game has already grown with the number of girls teams increasing by 35% and women’s teams by 38% in 2018 and those involved in the game will work to support the 21 by 21 campaign over the next two years.
18. 18.The Women’s Rugby League season kicks off on Sunday, April 7, as all three leagues begin their 2019 campaign. Supporters can tune in to Wigan Warriors v St Helens live on the Our League app and website, as part of more coverage for the Women’s game.
RFL chief executive Ralph Rimmer said: “It’s fantastic that we’re launching the 21 by 21 campaign to encourage more Women and Girl’s to be involved with rugby league.
“It’s an ambitious aim but the growth of the Women’s and Girl’s game over the past few years has been huge and I’m sure everyone involved in the game will embrace, encourage and help to achieve the targets that double our numbers.”
