The Rugby League Exhibition and Interactive Trail is Coming to Huddersfield

Huddersfield BID have helped to bring all the major trophies of Rugby League together for the first time in history to celebrate the birth of the sport.

This celebration, which will of course be in the vicinity of the George Hotel, takes place on 29th August and will bring the Coral Challenge Cup, Betfred Super League Trophy, The Rugby League World Cup, The Women’s World Cup and Wheelchair World Cup under one roof.

This Exhibition has been brought to you in collaboration with Kirklees Council, The RFL, Rugby League Cares and Huddersfield BID alongside Banana Kick.

The exhibition not only celebrates the historic anniversary it marks the beginning of Huddersfield’s journey to the Rugby League World Cup in 2021 and the programme to develop the first National Rugby League Museum. The new museum is set to be established in the George Hotel where 21 Northern teams met on the 29th August 1895 and 20 voted to break away from the Rugby Football Union to form their own league.

A chance to win 1 in 3 season tickets through our Hello Huddersfield interactive trail!

As part of the 125 celebrations Huddersfield BID will launch a FREE interactive Rugby League Trail around Huddersfield Town Centre. With 13 set locations to find based around creating a journey highlighting 13 momentous Rugby League moments from the past 125 years. With downloadable QR codes accessible through our LoyalFree app on banners, posters, window vinyl’s and much more this interactive trail really is one of its kind dedicated to a sport born in Huddersfield. To add even more excitement there is a FREE competition to WIN a Rugby League season ticket of your choice for the 2021 campaign. All you have to do is collect the 13 stickers, via the LoyalFree app, by watching the 13 highlights throughout the town on a mobile device.

BID Manager Matthew Chapman said; “As a rugby league fan myself this collaborative working and celebration of something Huddersfield should rightly be proud of has been fantastic to see. Using our LoyalFree and Hello Huddersfield platforms we hope to encourage sports fans alike into the Town Centre to enjoy this unique opportunity in a COVID-safe way not only on the 29th August but right the way up to the start of the 2021 season. Thanks must go to all the parties involved for making this happen in challenging times.
