RTL Today – Stade de France to host 10 matches of the 2023 Rugby World Cup


The Stade de France will host 10 matches during the 2023 Rugby World Cup, the tournament’s organizing committee announced on Monday.

The stadium was originally built on a former industrial site in Saint-Denis for the 1998 FIFA World Cup, and has since hosted the 2007 Rugby World Cup final and the Euro 2016 final.

Among the matches to be held at the National Stadium of France, located just north of the capital Paris, there will be the opening match, the final, two semi-finals and two quarter-finals.

More than 800,000 supporters are expected at the Stade de France during the tournament, which runs from September 8 to October 21 in three years.

Marseille will host the other two quarter-finals, while matches will also be played in Lille, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Nantes, Lyon, Nice and Saint-√Čtienne.

The 2023 World Cup draw, which will feature 20 teams, will take place on December 14 in Paris.

Twelve teams – Australia, Argentina, South Africa, New Zealand, France, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Wales, England, Fiji and Japan – have already qualified after finishing in the top three in each pool at the Cup of the world 2019.
