The Rugby World Cup is a men's rugby union tournament contested every four years between the top international teams. The tournament was first held in 1987, when the tournament was co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia.
The Rugby World Cup 2019 will take place in Japan. 20 teams will play a total of 48 matches across 12 different locations. The final match will take place on the 2nd of November in the Tokyo stadium.
The build-up in Japan is well underway and there is a drive to make the tournament unforgettable.
From the beginning of the preparations, there has been a strong focus on the legacy of the tournament and an agreed aim of working towards making rugby a truly global sport.
