Get ready for the 2023 Rugby World Cup by lacing up your cleats and wearing your favorite team jersey. Organisers have announced their new slogan: We Are Rugby # WeAre2023! The event will take place in France from September 8 to October 21, 2023, for the 10th time.
Over 45 days, ten host cities across the country, including Bordeaux, Lillle, Nantes, Nice, Marseille, St. Etienne, and Toulouse, will take part in the competition and associated festivities. There are expected to be 450,000 international visitors at the event. Rugby’s 200th anniversary will be celebrated in 2023 and the sport continues to grow in popularity. Over 209 countries viewed the most recent Rugby World Cup in history in 2015.
The slogan #WeAreRugby aims to reflect the cohesive and diverse communities of both the 19 participating nations and teams as well as the guests and residents of the host cities.
Top French Cities is a union of 29 municipalities, from large cities like Bordeaux to smaller ones such as Avignon and Versailles. These are perfect for all types of tourists – young travelers, families, and anyone else looking for French experiences that match their budget. Many of these towns boast a lively student atmosphere, yet remain faithful to their local roots and traditions. Additionally, many cities are modernizing; historic structures are being transformed into contemporary art galleries like Les Docks in Marseille. Some places have also embraced cutting-edge museums, such as Nimes’ Museum of Roman Civilization (Musée de la Romanité) situated near the ancient amphitheater or Nantes with its enchanting mechanical creatures. Lastly, visitors who explore Le Havre can wander through a UNESCO World Heritage Site which successfully combines classical elements with more recent innovation.
