Leeds Welcome | Leeds Rugby World Cup Success!

Leeds Rugby World Cup Success!

Last weekend saw Leeds play host to yet another prestigious event in the sporting calendar, The Rugby World Cup. Canada v Italy and Scotland v USA were both held at Elland road and hordes of excited fans descended on the city creating a vibrant, international buzz in the city. Leeds was awash with maple leaves, stars and stripes, Italian flags and kilts.

Our City ambassadors were among the volunteers who welcomed rugby fans, giving out information about the World Cup whilst stationed in key points in the city centre. One of these locations included the Millennium Square fan zone, a dedicated area for any die-hard fan who hadn’t managed to bag themselves a ticket.
