Taoiseach Leads World Cup Bid Presentation

The Ireland 2023 Rugby World Cup Bid Presentation delegation will present Ireland’s case to World Rugby in London tomorrow. The delegation will be spearheaded by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

Over the last four years the government has led an all-Ireland effort, across all sporting codes and all sections of society, to win the bid.

Ireland will be one of 3 bidders presenting to World Rugby delegates in London, the others being South Africa and France. Each will have 30 minutes to make a formal presentation, followed by a question and answer session.

This group will be supported by a team of experts across the critical elements of Ireland’s proposition including Commercial and Sponsorship, Stadiums, Logistics, Ticketing, Travel and Accommodation.

The final decision will be announced, following a vote involving the constituent Unions and associations of World Rugby, on November 15th.
