Keen on the Rugby World Cup, get ready!

We are a nation of sport enthusiasts – there is nothing better than the excitement a Rugby World Cup creates; people from all walks of life have the common bond of cheering on their team, and it is happening here right on our doorstep!

For over 6 weeks from the middle of September, we will be hosting this amazing tournament where fans can soak up the atmosphere of the tournament and join in the nationwide celebration of rugby. England Rugby 2015 has announced 15 official Rugby World Cup ‘Fanzone’ locations across England and Cardiff.

Fanzones will be located within each host city as well as in the town of Rugby, the birthplace of the game, and in London’s Trafalgar Square. With capacities ranging from around 2,000 to over 10,000, and additional events planned in Fanzones outside of match days, over 1 million fans are anticipated in the Fanzones throughout the tournament.  Each Fanzone will include a big screen; with some showing live Rugby World Cup 2015 matches, rugby activities and food and drink to celebrate each host city and match venue’s role in Rugby World Cup 2015.

Such an atmosphere when you are there!
