World Rugby reveal likely hosts for 2025 and 2027 Rugby World Cup’s

World Rugby have backed England to host the women’s Rugby World Cup in 2025.

England, which staged the tournament for the first time in 2010, has been named as a “preferred candidate” by World Rugby.

The most recent World Cup hosted in England was the 2015 men’s competition.

Australia looks likely to host the men’s World Cup in 2027, with final decisions on both to be made in May.

“We are delighted to have been awarded preferred candidate status for Rugby World Cup 2025,” RFU CEO Bill Sweeney said.

“Hosting it will be incredible, our ambition is to stage the best attended women’s RWC ever, with nationwide qualifiers and a sellout final at Twickenham Stadium.”

The next women’s Rugby World Cup was postponed until next year in New Zealand due to the COVID-19. The next men’s tournament is due to be held in France in 2023.
