The preferred RWC hosts were announced by World Rugby in April 2022, and as expected, the nations appointed to host “sport’s biggest events within a new partnership hosting model with World Rugby that will underpin the growth of the sport over the next decade and beyond”
The World Rugby Council also “approved a new model that will see World Rugby form partnerships with national unions and governments to establish a local delivery structure in each nation. This includes a roadmap to accelerate the sport’s advancement in the USA and increased investment in the women’s game.”
World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said: “Today, we have approved three exceptional Rugby World Cup host nations – England, Australia and USA – providing unprecedented certainty and an unparalleled opportunity to accelerate the growth and impact of rugby globally. It is great for rugby, for fans and for the host nations.”

World Rugby Chief Executive Alan Gilpin added: “As a sport and an international federation, it is imperative that we continually seek new ways to ensure that the sport converts clear potential into impactful outcomes, and today’s decision reflects that commitment.
A partnership approach will enable us to develop robust strategic objectives that are great for the host nation and great for rugby and build efficiencies of delivery and resourcing, helping to reduce hosting costs from the outset, while maximising fan engagement, revenue and delivery opportunities. All of which will lead to even greater direct investment back into the game at all levels.”
