England has been named as the host nation for the 2025 Rugby World Cup.
The host nations for the five tournaments across the women’s and men’s games from 2025 through to 2033 were confirmed on Thursday, following a World Rugby Council meeting in Dublin.
After England hosts the 2025 women’s competition, Australia will host the 2027 (men’s) and 2029 (women’s) events, before the USA stages the tournament for the first time in 2031 (men’s), along with the 2033 (women’s) showpiece.
Australia and England were earlier named “preferred candidates” while the US was in dialogue with World Rugby as part of a new selection model introduced last year that aims to accelerate the growth of the sport.
England, the 2014 winners of the competition, previously hosted the women’s tournament in 2010, while Australia, already a two-time host of the men’s event, hosts the women’s for the first time.
RFU chief operating officer Sue Day said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the 2025 women’s World Cup – it’s going to be incredible.
“Working closely with Government, UK Sport, Sport England and World Rugby, we will create a lasting legacy for women’s rugby in England, the UK and across the world, both in terms of attracting more people to play and attracting new fans.
