Overview

You’ll hear poetic chanting and ‘Vive Les Blues’ echoing through stadiums and bars during your Rugby World Cup 2023 experience.

France 2023, the 10th World Cup, will showcase local products, French culture and passion for rugby. It will coincide with the 200 year anniversary of the invention of rugby and will be the second World Cup held solely in France (most recently was in 2007, while 1991 had multiple host countries including France). South Africa will head into the tournament as defending World Champions, after defeating England convincingly in the 2019 World Cup Final in Yokohama, Japan.

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.

Events Travel’s COVID-19 Global Pandemic Statement

Dear Customers,

In these extraordinary times, we hope you are staying safe and well.

We are optimistic about travel opening up domestically in the next few months within Australia and travel to New Zealand permitted in September. After this, we expect travel to open within the Asia-Pacific region and globally by early 2021.

As such, our full range of packages, tours and services are now on sale for events taking place after 8 October 2020. In addition, events taking place in 2021 and 2022 are now on sale (such as The 150th Open Championship).

All events are pending Government travel restrictions, as well as general health and safety notices published by DFAT Smartraveller.

This booking fee varies by event. Full details are available within our Booking Terms and Conditions.

We hope that this new policy provides you with reassurance and confidence when booking your sports travel experience with Events Travel.
