2017 Rugby League World Cup fixtures

The 2017 Rugby League World Cup will be the 15th in history, and will be hosted across Australia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand, between October 26 and December 2 2017. Below, you can view all the fixtures for the tournament.

The event will see the same amount of teams as the 2013 World Cup, which was staged in England, Wales, France and Ireland and was won by Australia. 14 teams are taking part.

All games will be live on the Seven Network in Australia, with the final to be hosted in Brisbane. Sydney will only see two games for the entire tournament, with matches to be spread right around Australia.

The quarter-finals will be split between Australia and New Zealand evenly, with Australia’s matches to be played in Darwin and Melbourne, while the New Zealand hosted games will be in Christchurch and Wellington.

The semi-finals meanwhile, will be at Mount Smart Stadium in Auckland and Brisbane.

Kick-off times are provisional only and are likely to change.
