Which stadium is hosting the Rugby World Cup Final?
In 2023, France will host the Rugby World Cup. But not a lot of people know which French stadium will be hosting the biggest game in international rugby.
The Stade de France will be hosting the Rugby World Cup Final in 2023. The Stade de France is the national sports stadium of France, located just north of Paris. It is not only the biggest stadium in France, but it is also the sixth largest stadium in England.
The Stade de France is the normal venue that the French rugby team plays their home internationals in. The stadium was built in 1998, originally designed to be part of the 1998 Football World Cup. But the stadium also has a storied history in international rugby.
When France hosted the Rugby World Cup in 2007, it was the stadium where South Africa defeated England to become Rugby World Cup champions for the second time. In 2007, it was also the stadium which hosted both of the Rugby World Cup semi-finals.
It will be the same in 2023. Both of the 2023 Rugby World Cup semi-finals will be hosted at the Stade de France in Paris. The stadium is also used for domestic rugby as it is the secondary home of the two Parisian clubs Racing 92 and Stade Francais.
There was never going to be a better stadium to host the Rugby World Cup Final than the Stade de France. It also helps that the stadium is located incredibly close to the country’s capital.
Where is the next Rugby World Cup 2027?
The Rugby World Cup may be just about to start, but a lot of people are wondering about where the 2027 Rugby World Cup is being held.
The 2027 Rugby World Cup is being held in Australia. In 2022, World Rugby announced that Australia would host the next Rugby World Cup. Australia has experience hosting rugby’s biggest tournament, having been the hosts in 1987 and 2003. There was some fierce competition for the rights to host the tournament.
The USA was the main bidder for the tournament, but Australia’s preparedness for the tournament made them a much smarter choice for 2027.Also, World Rugby wanted the hosts for the tournament to be in the Southern Hemisphere because the 2023 Rugby World Cup is being hosted in the Northern Hemisphere.
There were other countries who initially submitted a bid before proceeding to withdraw it. Argentina announced they were intending to bid to host the 2027 Rugby World Cup in 2016, but four years later they withdrew from the bidding without giving a massive amount of information why.
There was some speculation that South Africa would be interested in hosting the tournament. The three time Rugby World Cup champions never submitted an official bid to challenge Australia.
