Wheelchair Rugby League has exploded in popularity since England’s dramatic, last-minute victory over France in the 2022 World Cup Final. Now, the architect of that famous victory, England head coach Tom Coyd, is in the process of unearthing the next generation of talent to take on the world.

Tom Coyd says:
“Future world cup winners will be in action on Sunday 26 – they are the future of England. From the youth festival in the morning, through to the ‘Future of England’ match in the afternoon, and York versus Bradford Bulls in between, there’s so much for individuals and families to enjoy. It’s inclusive, it’s exciting and it’s not to be missed.

“For all those involved it’s a chance to gain experience at the next level, to showcase their skills and to enjoy the thrill of playing in front of a crowd. There’s nothing like it.

“My thanks go to our partners at York RLFC Foundation and York Sport for their fantastic support.”

York Sport Village Changing Room Improvements

York Sport is delighted to announce, in partnership with the University of York, that we are now part of the Changing Places Scheme!

Changing Places is a scheme that aims to see toilets installed in all public venues, so that everyone, regardless of their access needs or disability or reliance on the assistance of carers or specialist equipment, can use a toilet facility with dignity and hygienically!

From early September, work has been carried out in our Public Changing Village in order to make our facilities more accessible as part of this scheme. We are now happy to announce that this work has been completed.

Further details of this fantastic scheme can be found below.
