World Cup of Stations

Old Llanwrda Station

We are looking for community groups to nominate stations for The World Cup of Stations tournament (run by the Rail Delivery Group) – returning for its second year.

It is part of the run-up to Stations’ Day on 16 October – the rail industry’s annual celebration of all stations big and small.

The final competition, launching on 12th October, will see 48 stations large and small representing each region of the country competing in a series of online polls hosted on the Rail Delivery Group’s Twitter page (@RailDeliveryGrp), first against local rivals before going national.

By Friday 16th October, the competition will have been whittled down to a final four with one of Britain’s 2,579 railway stations named the nation’s favourite on Friday evening.

Our stations and our key worker staff have been playing a crucial role supporting the response to COVID-19. We have been proud of the work they have done and by nominating your local station you can say thank you and help boost pride in our local community.

The first step is to make sure your local station qualifies for the World Cup. You can nominate your station by tweeting at the Rail Delivery Group twitter account and using #WorldCupOfStations – the closing date to do this is the 4th October (3 days’ time).

If you are aware of a community group that may be interested, please submit an entry and/or share with wider networks.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you feel we can help with anything more.
