World Rugby Awards 2020 Time Confirmed
The World Rugby Awards Special Edition (2020) will take place at 8 PM GMT on Monday 7 December 2020 and will be streamed and freely accessible on World Rugby social media channels. For most of Asia, the awards will be held in the early hours of Saturday morning, 8th December 2020.
World Rugby Chairman Sir Bill Beaumont said: “With under a week to go until the World Rugby Awards Special Edition the sense of anticipation is building to find out who rugby fans around the world have voted to be the best men’s and women’s players of the decade in both 15s and sevens.
“Equally importantly, the event will provide a special opportunity to pay tribute to many members of the global rugby community who have performed incredible acts of service in helping to fight the global pandemic during what has been an extremely challenging year around the globe.”
