Australia has been announced as the host of the 2027 and 2029 Rugby World Cups, and is expected to infuse $ 60 MILLION per code without cash.

  • Australia has been named the host of the 2027 and 2029 Rugby World Cups
  • The prestigious tournament was last held Down Under 24 years ago
  • The non-cash code expects a $ 60 million increase from tournaments

Australia will host the Men’s and Women’s Rugby World Championships in 2027 and 2029.

The World Rugby Council has officially given Australia the right to stage two world exhibits following a final vote in Dublin on Thursday.

Australia was almost certain to win both tournaments after previously gaining preferential host status in the simplified application process.

Sydney Harbor Bridge glowed green and gold at 6pm in anticipation before Rugby Australia (RA) received confirmation, which they were looking forward to almost three hours later.

Wallabies legend Tim Horan, a two-time World Cup winner, wrote on Twitter an announcement that marked “the most significant moment in Australian rugby history since winning the RWC in 1991, which put rugby on the map of Oz”.

RA boss Andy Marinas has estimated that the two World Cups could bring in $ 50 million to $ 60 million to the governing body, deprived of money, and help bring the sport back to its glory days in Australia.

The forecast was made after the organization considered returning to amateur status, when it recorded a net deficit of $ 27.1 million by 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It sets us up for what I think will be the golden age of rugby in this country,” said RA President David Cody.

Wallabies captain Michael Hooper and Wallaroos captain Shannon Perry said holding the two events will inspire a new generation of young players.

“It’s pretty special,” Hooper said.

“The runway from all this is coming together in the next 10 years of rugby. Not only with these World Cups, but also at the Olympics (Brisbane 2032) with rugby in the Olympics and what it looks like.

“It’s a pretty good time to be a young rugby player or want to play rugby.”

Australian women’s rugby president Josephine Sukar said that “the impact of what this means not only for Australia but also for the region” cannot be overestimated.

“The legacy this will create for Australia is an increase in participants. We expect that more than 30,000 men and women will take part in the game, ”Sukar said.

Perry expected the World Women’s Championships in Australia to attract young girls to the game for the first time as a women’s team of seven after winning gold at the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

“Since 2016, it has really created a path and a bit of a legacy for these young girls,” Perry said.

“To think about it, we also have the Commonwealth Games (in Victoria in 2026). It’s a massive path and trajectory to lure girls into rugby.

“It’s really exciting. If you’re 15, 16, come in five, six, seven years, you’ll probably be on this Wallaroos team.

The 2027 Men’s Championship will take place 24 years after the Walabi reached the final the last time Australia hosted the tournament, and is expected to take place from eight to 10 matches.

Many other venues will serve as training bases, while artistic, wine and food trails will be among the lures designed to attract tourists looking for more of their experience than rugby.

In total, the event in 2027 is projected to attract more than two million people in seven weeks of competition, including 200,000 international visitors, and bring in $ 2.5 billion for economic growth.

Organizers said it would create 13,300 jobs and stimulate $ 500 million in new trade and investment.

The consecutive World Cups in Australia will take place after the 2023 RWC in France and the British and Irish Lions tour of Australia in 2025.
