Australia has launched its bid to host the 2027 World Cup. Under the slogan “Game On”, the Aussies wait for the definition of possible competitors. World Rugby will begin with the evaluations and inspections of the candidates in February 2022, while in May of the same year the venues for RWC 2027 and 2031 will be defined.
Rugby Australia President Hamish McLennan, along with other personalities, presenting the “Game On” campaign at the Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art.
“This is an exciting day for all Australians as we formally raise our hands to have the third largest sporting event in the world. Hosting the 2027 World Cup is a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Australia, which would generate substantial economic results for our country, while providing a lasting legacy for rugby in this region. “
On the other hand, McLennan said: “We know that an RWC in Australia would be a vibrant event and a game changer for World Rugby, showcasing the best of the sport to 405 million fans around the world. By combining the largest rugby event in the world with what we believe is the best tourist destination in the world, international fans will be able to soak up our culture, our beaches and natural wonders in a safe and secure environment. “
