Rugby Union World Cup 


The International Rugby Union World Cup is a professional tournament that is played every four years between the top international teams in World Rugby. The Rugby World Cup falls under the jurisdiction of World Rugby, the sport’s governing body. 

The winning team receives the prestigious Webb Ellis Cup, named after William Webb Ellis who was a rugby legend who divided the game during his school days.

The first tournament was played in 1987 and was co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia with New Zealand All Blacks emerging victorious. The All Blacks are the current world champions, having claimed the trophy in 2015 with a 34-15 victory over the Wallabies at Twickenham. 

New Zealand are the most successful nation in World Rugby and have won the World Cup on three occasions. Four countries have shared the trophy with Australia and South Africa winning twice and England once. 

Japan are scheduled to host the tournament in 2019 and France will host the Rugby World Cup in 2023.
