The 2013 Armed Forces Rugby League World Cup will take place at Colchester Barracks, hosted by 16 Air Assault Brigade.
Four teams will contest the tournament, with champions Great Britain hosting Australia and New Zealand alongside debutants Serbia.
The significance of Serbia's involvement in the tournament is of political significance and demonstrates that sport can overcome political division.
The middle weekend of the tournament links up with the annual military festival in Colchester, which will bring extra razzmatazz to the excitement on offer on the pitch, with the final taking place a week later on Saturday 13th July.
