yes but NZ and Australia have a huge rugby following, its a proffesional sport etc so it less of a risk isnt it. Rugby is the Sport of New Zealand and its a big sport in Australia admittly behind cricket , aussie rules and league but still big

i would no exactly how popular the Canadian National rugby team is but im assuming that it falls miles behind ice hockey, football, baseball

I'm sure there's plenty of Canadians here that would say it's hugely popular, in Eastern Canada mostly.

It's gonna be a bid about growing the sport, bringing it to new places and the lasting legacy of a domestic Canadian league, using a mix of new venues built for the RWC, as well as some existing rugby venues in major cities which will be offering their CFL stadiums for the RWC.

The league will be small, with many stadiums barely making the 20,000 mark, but could span all Provinces and be reasonably popular enough to be a lasting legacy of the RWC.

im sure Canada would be a great host country i just think in the eyes of the IRB who ultimately make the decision they will see 2023 as maybe to early. maybe 2031 would be more likely to be succesful.

you just have to hope that the IRB stays corruption free unlike FIFA and desicions are made on merit alone.

Apparently the IRB has asked USA Rugby to consider bidding for the 2023 World Cup. Canada is also mentioned as a potential joint bid partner.

http://www.universalsports.com/news-...id=569413.html
http://www.universalsports.com/news-...id=500280.html

After a scan through google earth I could only find a handful of Stadia in the USA that can fit a full sized Rugby Union pitch (122m/68m). They were the LA Coliseum, Legion Field, Dolphins Stadium, Rutgers Stadium, Rentschler Field, Memorial Stadium (Uni of Kansas) and Memorial Stadium (Uni of Illinois). I doubt that Rugby would hold that much appeal to some of these markets, specifically the South. Numerous other Stadiums either weren't long enough or wide enough.

If the IRB relaxed dimensions to a uniform 116m/65m then that opens up the options to many more venues such as the Rose Bowl, Gillette Stadium, Cleveland Stadium, Heinz Field, Quest Field, Coors Field and numerous MLS stadia which have already been used for USA Rugby iunternationals and Rugby 7's.

No doubt there's some Athletics Stadiums in the USA which I'm not aware of that are of appropriate quality and capacity to also be suitable venues for a Rugby World Cup.

All CFL Stadiums but Hamilton's Ivor Wynne Stadium can fit the full sized Rugby pitch.

Great News!!

Exclusive: Argentina formulating Rugby World Cup bid

HomeNewsExclusive: Argentina formulating Rugby World Cup bid

Argentina will bid for either the 2023 or 2027 Rugby World Cup, SportBusiness International can exclusively reveal.



Agustín Pichot, director for the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) and the country’s representative on the International Rugby Board (IRB), said he and his five-man UAR board are exploring the potential of bidding for one of the two editions.

“We are looking at planning to bid for either the 2023 or 2027 Rugby World Cup and I have started talking to the Argentinean government about this,” said Pichot, the man who captained the Argentinean national side for the best part of the decade, in an interview that will be published in full in the next issue of SportBusiness International on July 1. “I am also part of the Argentinean Olympic Committee and we have recently started our bid for the 2018 Youth Olympic Games. This is what we need to be doing to build for the future. Even if we lose, we need to learn and grow.”

The UAR will take optimism from the IRB’s recent strategy of awarding two hosts at the same time, ensuring that at least one edition is in a traditionally strong rugby market, as seen with the 2015 and 2019 events being awarded to England and Japan respectively.

Argentina has beaten every major team in international rugby except South Africa and New Zealand and finished third at the 2007 World Cup. Awarding the event to the country would mean that the World Cup will have been held on every continent, except Antarctica and North America, within 40 years of the competition’s inception. It took FIFA, world football’s governing body, 64 years for a nation outside Europe or Latin America to host its World Cup.

Pichot also said one of his current objectives is to strengthen the international appeal of Argentinean club rugby, revealing he is currently working on a proposal to create a Buenos Aires-based franchise to join the Super 15, the league that consists of the best club sides from SANZAR (the rugby unions for South Africa, New Zealand and Australia).

If the IRB asked them to bid I'd expect they would relax the regulations a bit, certainly enough to let a stadium with a field like BoA Stadium in Charlotte (121m long, 80ish wide) host. That'd open up a ton of them, most NFL stadiums built after 1995, plus the Cotton Bowl, Rose Bowl, ect.

You'd be surprised at the popularity rugby has in certain southern cities though. It's not jumping off the charts or anything, but there are clubs who have been around for a long time and even have (tiny) grounds of their own.

I think it's time it returns to South Africa It'll be a very different affair to last time with the new stadiums we'd be using.

It certainly has to go to South America in 2023. Typically I don't like tournaments spread across multiple countries but Chile/Uruguay and even Brazil could help make it a big step forward for the sport.

I think 2027 is better cause 2019 will be alteady in a country with no tradition, and 2027 will be close to 2030 WC so it can help each other

I only meant it as a way to reward italy, could really spark a greater interest in rugby and italy would have been in the 6 nations. By 2027 argentina would have been in the quad nation 15 years too . What north american country do you think should host ?

The new Ivor Wynne Stadium will most certainly be able to fit a full size rugby pitch
