Hotels taking part in Rugby League World Cup bid

TWO Brighouse hotels are being considered to accommodate players in the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

Calderdale Council has co-ordinated a bid which offers match venues, team training sites and team accommodation across the area alongside a complementary development programme of rugby league opportunities.

The Holiday Inn, Clifton, and Waterfront Lodge Hotel, Brighouse, will work together with seven other companies throughout the district to provide a variety of options for hosting matches, team training facilities and accommodation facilities.

Rugby delegates will be visiting the facilities that make up the bid and what they offer, and also to discuss proposals surrounding the promotion of the event and how the consortium plan to develop the sport locally on the back of any award of matches or training sites.
