2019 Rugby World Cup

The 2019 Rugby World Cup will be the ninth Rugby World Cup, and is to be held in Japan from tomorrow to 2nd of November . This will be the first time the tournament is to be held in Asia, and outside the traditional heartland of rugby union. The opening match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup will take place at the Ajinomoto Stadium in Chōfu, Tokyo, and the final match will be held at the Nissan Stadium in Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture. These venue assignments were announced in September 2015 when plans for the tournament were revised by Japan’s organizing committee and accepted by World Rugby. The National Olympic Stadium, being rebuilt for the 2020 Summer Olympics, was originally the centerpiece of Japan’s Rugby World Cup bid, but revisions to the Olympic Stadium plans mandated the World Cup venue changes.
