Northern Ireland won't 'help', they are an integral part. Unlike everything else (I know...don't ask)  the Irish rugby union represents the whole island, not the republic. Northern Ireland's rugby is simply as 'Ulster', a province of Ireland just as Munster etc are.

That's always been an interesting enough quirk. Gonna be even more so post Brexit.

I think Italy will be the frontrunner here, especially if Rome ditches its 2024 Olympics bid.

It seems not...

The Italian Rugby Federation regretfully confirms that it has withdrawn from the Rugby World Cup 2023 host selection process.

The decision was taken by the FIR and the Promoting Committee following consultation with the Italian Government and the Italian Olympic Committee.

“Our candidature has always been strictly connected to the Olympic Games bid for Rome 2024 and, as agreed with the Goverment and the Olympic Committee, we are unable to provide necessary commitments for us to move forward," said FIR President Alfredo Gavazzi said.

“We remain convinced of the strenght of our bid and are well aware of the benefits that hosting the Rugby World Cup would have brought to Italy. We’re conscious to lose a fantastic chance to promote our values and our sport in our country, but we must sadly accept that today we can no longer move forward with our bid."

“I’d like to thank the Olympic Committe President Giovanni Malagò, who has supported our bid right from the start. We know he’s disappointed, as we are, for losing such a great chance. I’d also like to thank the venues and the municipalities who showed great interest in being part of the bid" Gavazzi added.

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.

All 3 bids appear good, but I've got my fingers crossed for South Africa.  A complete rugby centric event, (granted they are having a low patch) but a truly deserving rugby nation who hasn't seen a World Cup match on their soil since 95. Besides, it is well and truly the southern hemisphere's turn.

I just have a feeling Ireland may get this....after all the headquarters of the rugby board are in Dublin, plus Irish rugby has been very impressive over the last few years. France its too soon since 2007. That said though South Africa would be very good if they can get their selfs together, ie Durban 2022. Personally i do think an Irish World Cup would have the better atmosphere but South Africa would have the best fit.

We need to get over the North v South thing... What we now have to live with is the fact that these large events will go to countries that can afford them...

In saying that, South Africa would be a great host and shouldn't have the 2022 CWGs debacle compaired to a 2023 RWC bid. This will be a nationwide event and the cost spread around what is still a wealthy country. Best of all, facilities are already in place. (New Zealand owes SA a favour here, as they supported our 2011 bid.)

I still would love to see Ireland as a host nation. It would be one almighty party! 

Anyway since one of these hasn't happened in a while,

The Future -

2023 Ireland

2027 South Africa

2031 United States

2035 France/Italy

2039 Australia

2043 England

2047 New Zealand/Fiji/Samoa

I can only see this happening now.

New Zealand Rugby Union has formally endorsed the SAFU led bid for 2023. This was always going to happen as a payback for South Africa's support for the remarkable 2011 bid by New Zealand. A logical choice with facilities already in place and a shared timezone with cash rich Europe. 

(This is what the future is going to look like for First Tier events...Nationwide bids to help share costs, something the IOC wants for 2032 and beyond just to save themselves.)

?! The decision nobody expected - nothing against France but I wonder why they've done this - it's only 16 years since they last hosted. Unless of course they're following the IOC around the world...USA 2027? :lol:

:huh: Why do I get the feeling MASSIVE amounts of money changed hands hours before the shock decision to give France the hosting rights to 2023 after a 16 year hiatus.

Reality is, France is THE financial powerhouse of Rugby. Their club sides have cheque books that can buy up all the players in the top five nations.

They have the management and the stadiums to pull off an amazing tournament.

South Africa, although in the same time zone may have been hobbled by instability and the failed 2022 Commonwealth Games host rights may have played a hand. Ireland simply too small under World Rugby's criteria for venues and their hardening stance on "shared'' hosting with next door nations.

:ph34r: The future now cant be predicted but I would say South Africa would stand a better chance for 2027. World Rugby would want the tournament south to appease but Argentina has made early rumblings as a potential host as well.

Japan 2019 - Tokyo 2020. 

France 2023 - Paris 2024.

If I was the USA Rugby Federation I'd be bidding for 2027 as it is obvious that World Rugby is in cahoots with the IOC and this tournament is now being utilised as a test event :)

Striking new logo and brand identity launched for Rugby World Cup 2023

RWC23_LO_STA_FC_C_POS-Copy.png

World Rugby and the France 2023 organising committee have unveiled the logo and visual identity for Rugby World Cup 2023.

Unveiled at a special event in Paris to mark one year since the hosting rights were awarded to France, the brand conveys the vision, passion and ambition of a tournament that will inspire and unite a nation, a sport and the globe in rugby and friendship.

In conjunction with the logo launch, the first phase of the official tournament website has been launched at www.rugbyworldcup.com/france2023 in French and English.

The France 2023 logo is a unique blend; different, powerful and modern. The logo resembles an unbreakable bond, which is as infinite as the Möbius ribbon, as strong as a beating heart, which inspires people to connect with each other. It is a new take on the blue-white-red of the French tricolour flag, a balance between the authenticity and modernity that are characteristic of France.

Today’s announcement represents another major preparation milestone on the road to hosting the tenth Rugby World Cup.

Underscoring the strength of the comprehensive and ground-breaking host selection process, for the first time, key tournament provisions were already secured prior to awarding the 2023 host, including all guarantees and financial provisions, stadia and rights protection obligations.

A total of 10 host cities from Lille in the north to Toulouse in the south will play host to the 20 teams who will compete across the 48 matches that comprise France 2023.

The France 2023 organising committee was inaugurated by World Rugby Chairman Bill Beaumont and French Prime Minister Edouard Philippe at an official event in Paris in March 2018.

Speaking from Paris, World Rugby Chief Executive Brett Gosper said: “This is a very exciting milestone on the road to hosting the tenth Rugby World Cup.

“The distinctive Rugby World Cup 2023 logo symbolises the unity between World Rugby and the organising committee and embodies the vision, passion and unity of a tournament that brings France and the world together through rugby and its character-building values.

“In a year that will mark 200 years since the birth of rugby, France 2023 will be the perfect celebration of that milestone – a record-breaking celebration of rugby on and off the field that will further the reach and growth of rugby around the world.”

France 2023 CEO Claude Atcher added: "It will be a pleasure to celebrate 200 years of rugby at France 2023, the tenth Rugby World Cup.

"It will be a celebration of rugby's heritage and rugby's future. From William Webb Ellis' desire to break from convention at Rugby School to the diversity, unity and growth of the modern, global game.

"Our goal is to evoke this spirit and inspire a generation through shared values with strong teamwork showing the best of Rugby to France and the best of France to Rugby, opening new horizons.

"Today we deliver a positive message to the world - we are rugby, we are 2023."

World Rugby
