How the Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021) sold tickets a year out from the tournament by offering hope for people to be together again

This paper is the ultimate sporting underdog story.
Representing an underfunded sport, with an underfunded media and production budget of £387k (during times of Covid), it will tell the story of how the Rugby League World Cup 2021 (RLWC2021) overcame a lack of interest in the sport to achieve £5.05m in ticket sales - a year out from the tournament beginning - to a largely new audience by focussing on the power and hope of togetherness.
Ultimately, it will show how the desire to be together again outweighed cynicism to the sport to deliver a campaign ROMI of 1,191%.

By building a highly efficient creative vehicle
