It’s a busy time for sports fans at the moment. Football fans will still be on a high from the Lionesses taking home the Women's Euro 2022 winner's title, and the Premier League kicking off; cricket fans are having a great time, too, with The Hundred fully underway. Now, it's rugby fans' turn to get excited.

The Rugby League World Cup is one of the hottest events in the international rugby league, with teams like England, Fiji, New Zealand, and Tonga competing to take home the coveted trophy.

This year, more teams than ever before will compete in the tournament: four groups with four teams each have already been decided, with England in a group with France, Greece, and Samoa. Of course, you should still expect the same rivalries, excitement, and pre-game Sipi Taus and Hakas.

So, the teams are split into groups, the schedule is set, and all that’s left now is for you to secure your tickets for October. Here’s how you can get your hands on them.
