Host announced for the 2019 World Rugby U20 Championship

World Rugby has awarded the World Rugby U20 Championship 2019 hosting rights to Argentina.

The selection was approved by the international federation’s Executive Committee and reflects its mission to showcase its premier age-grade competition to a global audience.

Argentina, who are guaranteed a top six finish in the 2018 tournament in France, hosted the event in 2010 and Rosario and Santa Fe will once again host the future stars of rugby.

The World Rugby U20 Championship is the world’s premier men’s age-grade tournament and is a proven finishing school top rugby talent.

The 2018 Championship in France draws to a conclusion on Sunday with England taking on the hosts in Beziers (live on ITV4, 6pm BST) and is on track to be the best-attended, most viewed and most socially-engaged event to date.
