It has been confirmed that Rugby League World Cup games will be played in west Cumbria.
There were fears the county had missed out when it was revealed that Whitehaven's Pow Beck stadium may not be ready in time for the competition.
Now Workington Town's ground Derwent Park will now be the venue for the Tonga v Scotland game and the Scotland v Italy game.
The World Cup organisers have said they were keen to keep the games in west Cumbria.
The decision to move the games to Workington depended on Allerdale Borough Council along with Britain's Energy coast, investing £450,000 to upgrade Derwent Park to RLWC 2013 standards.
Whitehaven will still play a part in the tournament, Scotland's training base will be at the town's Cumbria Sports Academy.
