Opening Ceremony & France v New Zealand - Stade de France - Friday 8 September 2023

What a way to kick off Rugby World Cup 2023.

After the fireworks have lit up the Parisian night sky and the best 20 teams in the world have been announced to an enthralled capacity crowd, the tournament will kick off with a barnstorming occasion.

Hosts France will take on mighty New Zealand in what could be one of the matches of the ages. French heart and soul, New Zealand passion and skill – what a way to get underway and your place is guaranteed.

Australia v Georgia - Stade de France - Saturday 9 September 2023

A big occasion and one that will set the course for the knockout stages.

Australia will be desperate to avoid any slip ups against a hugely motivated and physical Georgian side who will pour everything they have in grabbing the biggest scalp in their Rugby World Cup history.

There are always surprises and shocks during the tournament. Could this be one of them? Australia will be fired up and ready for the challenge to come.


Paris will always argue (with full justification) that its clichés are better than anywhere else's. True, you have seen them in a thousand images – the gleaming shopping strip of the Champs Elysées, the leafy paths of the Jardin des Tuileries, the Gothic majesty of Notre-Dame (currently under repair after the fire which enveloped it in 2019, but no less incredible under scaffolding), the epic domes of the Sacré-Coeur basilica, on the top of Montmartre. But to head to Paris, and not see them, would be to miss much that makes the city special.

Then there is the Eiffel Tower – which, for all its global fame, more than rewards those who pay it closer attention. The view it offers – from the first and second stages, as well as from the top – is one that is best enjoyed with your own eyes. Paris has it all and this rugby experience will bring it to life.
