France will host the rugby world cup 2023. This competition involves 20 teams and will be held in several stadiums throughout the main cities of France from September 8th to October 21st, 2023. Nine stadiums have been selected to host the tournament matches. Stade de France will set the scene for fierce battles during this international rugby competition.
All we know for now is that Stade de France will host 7 to 10 World Cup matches, yet, we still don’t know the 20 qualified teams as the draw isn’t topical. The great Saint-Denis stadium is known for hosting major international events as it did in 2007 when it received the opening match, the two semi-finals and the final of the Rugby World Cup.
