The Rugby League World Cup Trophy Comes To The 2013 Capital Challenge

19th November 2012

The Rugby League World Cup Trophy will be on show when London Skolars take on London Broncos at the HAC, Home to the Honourable Artillery Company, in the City of London in January. The annual match between London’s two professional Rugby League clubs provides supporters of both clubs a chance to see the new squads before they start their league campaigns and comes at the start of a massive year for the sport of Rugby league.

The 2013 Capital Challenge is being sponsored by Boost ETP and NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes.

England and Wales will host the Rugby League World Cup in 2013 and both semi-finals will be held on the same day in a double header at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, November 23, so the appearance of the iconic trophy in the heart of the City at the beginning of the year is entirely appropriate.

Howard Kramer, London Skolars General Manager, said: 2013 promises to be an exciting season for London Skolars, and our Capital Challenge opponents London Broncos. Rugby League fans in London are eagerly looking forward to seeing the 2013 season getting underway, a season which will culminate with the Rugby League World Cup taking place and London hosting the semi-finals at Wembley.

“It is therefore a great honour to have the Rugby League World Cup trophy present at the Honourable Artillery Company’s grounds, in the City of London, when Skolars and Broncos go head to head.With Jason Robinson already confirmed as guest speaker and Kris Radlinski also in attendance the 11th January promises to be a great day out for rugby league fans in London”

The Capital Challenge match will take place on the January 11 at the HAC grounds, kick off 2.00pm. The Skolars will host a pre-match luncheon prior to the game at midday in the HAC’s Banqueting Hall and rugby legend Jason Robinson OBE will be the guest speaker.
