We are delighted to announce a partnership between London 9s Rugby Festival and the Rugby League World Cup 2021.

John Dutton, CEO of RLWC2021 announced:

“It’s a pleasure to support the London9s (LDN9s): The largest Rugby9s festival in Europe. We look forward to supporting the organisers efforts to attract more overseas rugby league teams and fans to London.

London is critically important to RLWC2021 with the staging of a men’s World Cup semi-final at the Emirates, Arsenal and England’s group of the wheelchair tournament being held at the Copper Box Arena.

We look forward to working with the London9s with compelling offers to entice more rugby league teams and fans to come together and enjoy the experience of what will be the biggest and best Rugby League World Cup in history.”

London9s Organiser, Graham Oliphant commented:

“This is a huge step forward in our strategy to develop the London9s and propagate a connected and cohesive Nines Circuit.

The 2019 LDN9s will see amateur teams from over 12 different nations, represented in this one day festival, and the opportunity to enjoy a weekend of rugby league activity in London. We are also creating a great platform for emerging nations to demonstrate their skills on an international stage, and in the process make themselves visible for sponsorship.

The award winning London9s recently partnered with the Carolina9s, thus creating avenues for teams and fans to travel from North America to take part. We will also be creating reciprocal opportunities for UK and European teams who enter the LDN9s. 

Moving forward, we are excited to be working with the RLWC2021 team to showcase London as the epicentre for attracting teams and fans to England in 2021. 

Discounted team entry for the LDN9s 2019 closes on the 1st May. More details at www.london9s.uk

London 9s & Carolina 9s Form Historic Partnership

carolina 9s ldn 9s.png

In what sporting history will judge as the beginning of a World Series Rugby League Nines circuit, rugby has won where politics faltered in a trade deal formed between the UK and US.

The largest Rugby Nines festival in Europe, the award-winning London Nines (LDN9s) on August 25, has formally agreed a partnership with the USA-based Carolina Nines (Carolina9s), to be staged on Memorial Weekend, May 24 to 27.

This creates a trans-Atlantic dimension to participant-focused Rugby Nines festivals and a revolutionary step toward establishing Nines as a global entity.

“There are now exciting opportunities for adult rugby players and fans to enjoy Nines rugby and music festivals in both North America and the UK,” said London Nines promoter Graham Oliphant.

“In addition to this pipeline, we would also invite other European-based independent Nines festivals to connect and enjoy reciprocal benefits from this growing umbrella Nines structure.”

The London Nines, run for the first time in 2018, will this year form a pillar in an innovative rugby league weekend in London with fans able to purchase a single ticket providing them with entry to Oliphant’s East London Rugby Club extravaganza, London Skolars’ popular Friday Night Lights promotion and the iconic Challenge Cup final at Wembley.

The Carolina Nines are in their first year. The venue will be Saluda Shoals Park in Irmo, South Carolina, with promoter Andy Lucas hellbent on as much diversity as possible. Men's and women's events will be complemented by college, high school, flag rugby, wheelchair and physical disability matches.

Oliphant and Lucas have shared resources in the hope that others will join them in creating a circuit where sponsorship, media, travel and community integration opportunities can be maximised as it has in many other international sports.

Detail:

1- The LDN9s will provide strategic assistance and logistical and marketing support for growing the Carolina9s

2- The winning men's and women's teams from the Carolina Nines will be traveling to London in August to represent the USA in the LDN9s  

3- Likewise teams from the LDN9s will be encouraged to attend the annual Carolinas festival, and represent their respective countries across the pond.
