PNG will host national team Kumuls’ three pool matches against Wales (October 28), Ireland (November 5) and the USA (November 12).

As Official Platinum Partner, Oil Search will have a branding presence that will be seen in over 110 countries where the RLWC2017 is broadcast.

Oil Search will also partner the World Cup Trophy Tour and community program to be run by the RLWC2017 OC throughout PNG.

RLWC2017 general manager commercial and marketing, Rohan Sawyer said at a media conference during the announcement, that the excitement and enthusiasm for the RLWC throughout PNG is tangible.

Sawyer said they look forward to working with Oil Search to deliver an event that will celebrate rugby league, inspire communities and showcase PNG to the world.
