80% of French want France to host the Rugby World Cup again. All remember the enthusiasm, emotion, sharing, media and economic success of 2007, and we will make it relive to them. FRANCE HAS THE BEST assets, the best experience of major events. Recently the HANDBALL WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, THE EURO OF FOOTBALL 2016, and further back THE RUGBY WORLD CUP 2007, and the 1998 FOOTBALL WORLD CUP.

The common denominator between New Zealanders, South Africans, Argentines, Samoans, Fijians, Australians, Georgians, Italians ... is the French championship. Many talents of the rugby world, expresse every week on French grounds! We want to allow them again to express themselves in France under the colors of their country

Serge SIMON - French Rugby Federation Vice President

An application for the world cup is also and before anything the one of the 455 747 license holders and 1 895 French amateur clubs that make the international players of tomorrow.


The TOP14 is the most beautiful world championship. From the work of our rugby schools up to the training center of professional clubs to the mobilization of all the energies allowed to make of our French championship the most attractive rugby competition in the world.
