The difference between next year’s world cup and previous world cups will be the men's, women's and wheelchair games coming together for the first time on the sport’s biggest stage to show case egg chasing at its finest!

Like most international events there is a legacy programme in place which includes some educational resources that schools can gain access too. The education packs include primary, secondary and home learning resources and have been developed by teachers to keep your children engaged. There will be a full range of cross - curricular education resources launching very soon, so my advice will be to sign up now, have a look at what you may want use and keep an eye out for the cross - curricular resources in the near future.
