Process to Choose Hosts of Rugby World Cup 2025, 2027, 2029 and 2031 Begins

(2 Feb 2021)
The process to determine future hosts of the men’s and
women’s Rugby World Cups has officially kicked off with the start
of the Dialogue phase, enabling interested nations to start to
shape bids.

The process, which involves three phases –
Dialogue, Candidate and Evaluation, will determine hosts of the 2025 and 2029 women’s events,
and the 2027 and 2031 men’s Rugby World Cups.

World Rugby’s will select
the four future hosts at its Annual Meeting in May 2022 via an
open electronic vote after considering a risk-based evaluation,
rather than a recommendation. Multi-nation bids are being welcomed.


“Rugby World Cup is all about unity and this
process marks a bold, best-practice approach for the sport. By
awarding four hosts at the same time, the sport will have
long-term strategic certainty, enabling us to advance commercial
and broadcast partnerships and maximise revenue for reinvestment
across our unions and the wider game,” said World Rugby Chairman, Sir Bill Beaumont. “It is also an accessible and inclusive process.
It is important for everyone that the costs of bidding are
minimised and therefore by jointly building bespoke bids we can
ensure an approach that is good for nations and good for rugby,
maximising participation, societal and economic returns for all.”

The last men’s Rugby World Cup in 2019 attracted
the biggest-ever domestic broadcast audience for a rugby match of
more than 54 million and a participation boost of over 750,000,
while a recent Nielsen study confirmed it delivered a significant
boost to national pride. France is the host of Rugby World Cup 2023.

The ninth women’s Rugby World Cup is scheduled to
take place this year in New Zealand between 18 September and 16
October 2021. Ireland hosted the event in 2017.
