The 10th edition of the Rugby World Cup will kick off on 8th September and close with the final on 28th October. Every four years, fans long for this prestigious event, and this year’s edition promises to be even more exciting!
Hosted in France, the matches will be held across nine stadiums spread across various regions of France. So, if you’re in Britain closer to this time and are keen to join the vibe, get on a Eurostar to Paris from London.
Twenty teams will compete to win the coveted Webb Ellis Cup – including England. The champions, South Africa will defend their title against New Zealand, England, and Australia.
The England team has competed in all eight editions of the tournament since its creation in 1987. Since their win in 2003, England has remained strong in the Rugby World Cup with outstanding players like Jonny Wilkinson, Jason Leonard, Lawrence Dallaglio, and Jonny May.
They reached the quarter-finals in every tournament except for the 2015 edition, when they were the first hosts to be eliminated at the group stage. In 2019, they were in the final but fell short against South Africa, finishing as runners-up.
In addition to the on-field action, the Rugby World Cup 2023 will undoubtedly celebrate the unique culture and heritage of France. From gastronomy to art, fans will get a taste of the country’s rich traditions and attendees will have the chance to explore Paris and the picturesque cities hosting the matches.
