  3. World Rugby hails RWC 2023 bids 2017-09-25 20:31 Cape Town - World Rugby chairperson Bill Beaumont hailed the Rugby World Cup 2023 bids after the three unions presented their vision and plans in London on Monday. The bid teams from France, Ireland and South Africa were each given 30 minutes to present their hosting proposition to Council members before fielding questions from them. "Today represented an important and exciting milestone in the host selection process for Rugby World Cup 2023," said Beaumont. "It’s clear from the presentations that we have three exceptionally strong, impressive and exciting bids with full government support. Each, I believe, is capable of hosting a superb Rugby World Cup. "I would like to thank our friends from the respective union bid teams for their hard work, commitment and for sharing their vision and detailed hosting plans. My Council colleagues and I have much to consider and we look forward to the outcome of the thorough and independent evaluation process next month before we consider and select the Rugby World Cup 2023 host union." A key phase in the three-stage host selection process, the presentations follow the submission of detailed bids for detailed evaluation and analysis by World Rugby and independent experts. Within their submissions, the candidates were required to outline their vision and mission for hosting rugby’s global showcase event. This included confirmation of guarantees from governments and other appropriately empowered entities, the hosting agreement and detailed responses to core hosting requirements in line with World Rugby’s seven hosting objectives: - Venues and infrastructure commensurate with a top-tier major event - Comprehensive and enforceable public and private sector guarantees - A commercially successful event with a fully funded, robust financial model - Operational excellence through an integrated and experienced delivery team - A vision that engages and inspires domestic and international audiences and contributes to the growth of rugby at all levels - An enabling environment of political and financial stability that respects the diversity of Rugby World Cup’s global stakeholders - An environment and climate suited to top-level sport in a geography that allows maximum fan mobility All bids are currently being reviewed in detail by a specialist technical review group, evaluated against weighted criteria and will feature independent economic, financial and commercial assessment by expert advisors. The Sports Consultancy is independently assessing the group’s application of the evaluation criteria to ensure a fair and consistent approach to the decision-making process. A recommendation will then be made by the Rugby World Cup Board on October 31, before Council votes to select the host union for Rugby World Cup 2023 at its November 15 meeting. http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/SouthAfrica2023/world-rugby-hails-rwc-2023-bids-20170925

  12. Sainz's Renault switch agreed as McLaren deal looms Carlos Sainz has signed a deal to join Renault, Motorsport.com has learned, in a move that will trigger a series of dominos to secure McLaren the French car manufacturer’s engine for 2018. While news of McLaren’s progress in its efforts to switch from Honda engines has not been forthcoming in public, behind-the-scenes developments appear to show it has succeeded. High level sources have confirmed that Sainz’s deal has been agreed as part of a sweetener for Renault to end its Toro Rosso contract early.

  15. South Africa vs. Senegal World Cup qualifier to be replayed in November The Bureau for the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers ordered a replay of the qualification match between South Africa and Senegal held on 12 November 2016.

The match will be replayed within the November 2017 international window, with the exact date to be confirmed in due course. As stated in the FIFA World Cup regulations, this decision shall come into effect immediately but shall be subject to confirmation by the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions at its next meeting, scheduled for 14 September. http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/news/y=2017/m=9/news=south-africa-vs-senegal-world-cup-qualifier-to-be-replayed-in-november-2907241.html?intcmp=fifacom_hp_module_news
  16. Tokyo 2020 organizers considering moving women’s soccer final to new National Stadium The final of the women’s soccer competition at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics may be held at the new National Stadium in place of the men’s final, which is likely to be moved to another venue, a source close to the matter said Monday. Games organizers are considering staging the women’s final at the main Olympic stadium on Aug. 7 or earlier, while the men’s final, which had been scheduled there on Aug. 8, may be held possibly at Nissan Stadium in Yokohama or elsewhere, the source said. The move is aimed at easing the concentration of events at the National Stadium, currently being constructed in central Tokyo, toward the end of the 17-day Summer Olympics through Aug. 9. Under initial plans, the men’s soccer final was scheduled at the stadium during the day on Aug. 8, with track and field events set for that night. On the last day of competitions, the venue is scheduled to be used for men’s marathon in the morning before the closing ceremony in the evening. Organizers have determined that staging the men’s soccer final there was difficult considering the many setup changes that have to be implemented at a time when preparations and rehearsals for the closing ceremony must also be held, according to the source. But the Japan Football Association wants a soccer game to be played at the national stadium, which is set to be used exclusively for team ball sports like soccer and rugby after the games are over https://www.japantimes.co.jp/sports/2017/09/05/olympics/tokyo-2020-organizers-considering-moving-womens-soccer-final-new-national-stadium/#.Wa_YzdFv_IU
