Rugby World Cups to Be Played in United States for First Time

Rugby’s biggest tournament is finally heading to the United States.

Now comes the hard part for the sport’s leadership: Generating enough interest and sustainability to secure rugby’s place in a crowded US market.

The Rugby World Cup will be staged in the US for the first time after being voted on Thursday as the host of the men’s event in 2031 and the women’s tournament two years later.

It marks rugby’s first attempt to move into the broader American sporting consciousness and unlock what World Rugby — the global governing body — regards as an area of ​​untapped, in both a commercial and sporting sense.
