After Rugby World Cup 2019 broke all previous benchmarks, France is looking to go even further to capture the world’s imagination. 48 matches will be held across 9 cities, with the 45-day celebration of rugby in the spirit of openness and with a mission to transcend sport. France 2023 has the slogan ‘we are rugby, we are 2023’. The World Cup aims to be more than a sport and wants to demonstrate virtues of self-sacrifice, collective commitment and respect. France is expected to invite 450,000 visitors to share in these values.
France 2023 will be a unique opportunity to explore France, surrounding countries and Europe, while watching your nation compete on rugby’s highest stage. Matches will take place around the country, including Nice in the south, famous for old-world opulence, year-round sunshine, glitz and glamour. Lyon in the centre, will be another popular host city, located on the banks of the mighty Rhone River and has been a commercial and banking powerhouse for the past 500 years. Bordeaux will attract the gourmet crowd, famous for being a world-renowned wine growing region, that’s now a hip urban social centre. France truly has something for everything.
