What is the Rugby World Cup?

The Rugby World Cup is an international rugby union competition contested by the men’s national teams of the member countries of the sport’s governing body, World Rugby. The tournament has been held every four years since its inaugural event in 1987. It is the most prestigious event in international rugby union, and is considered the pinnacle of the sport.

The Rugby World Cup is a quadrennial event, and its format currently consists of a pool stage followed by a knockout stage. Twenty nations compete in the initial pool stage, which is divided into four pools of five nations each. The top two nations from each pool advance to the knockout stage, where they are joined by the four best-performing third-place finishers from the pools. From there, Knockout matches are played until only two nations remain; these two teams then contest the final match to determine the Rugby World Cup champion.

Over time, various changes have been made to both the structure and format of the Rugby World Cup. However, one constant has remained: it remains one of the 2023’s most popular and hotly-anticipated sporting events in the world.

When is the Rugby World Cup?

France will host the 2023 Rugby World Cup from Friday 8 September to Saturday 28 October.

The South Africans will defend their title after defeating England 32-12 in the 2019 final in Japan. Eddie Jones will be desperate to claim the trophy before he departs as England’s coach, but hosts France and three-time champions New Zealand will also be interested in the victory.

After Spain’s appeal against their disqualification was dismissed in June 2022, Romania replaced them in Pool B. Spain fielded an ineligible player during qualification.

After beating Kenya 36-0 in the final of the Rugby Africa Cup in Aix-en-Provence, Namibia earned a place in Pool A for their seventh consecutive World Cup.

After beating the USA over two legs, Chile qualified as Americas Two for the first time, while Tonga completed Pool B by beating Hong Kong 44-22 in the Asia Pacific One play-off.

Where is the Rugby World Cup?

The Rugby World Cup is being held in France from September 20 to October 31. It is the ninth edition of the Rugby World Cup, and will be the first to be held in France since 1987.
