The matches included
Quarter-final 3 - Stade Vélodrome - Sunday 15 October 2023
This is where England will hope to be – group winners and on course to maximise their chances in the knockout stages.
The sparring has been done, it’s now down to the serious stuff. The best eight teams in the world will come together, with a place in the last four at stake, which means one moment of brilliance or one mistake could be fatal.
In 2019, England put Australia to the sword in Oita and that momentum propelled them all the way to the final, what will be in store this time?
The matches included
Semi-final 2 - Stade de France - Saturday 21 October 2023
It’s within touching distance. The greatest game in rugby is only 80 minutes away and the eyes of the world will be on both semi-finals.
In 2019, there were two contrasting games. In the first, England produced their most memorable performance under Eddie Jones to defeat New Zealand and in the second, South Africa’s expertise, muscle and game-plan strangled Wales.
Two great teams will be heading out of the tournament – the question is, who will be left standing?
The matches included
Final - Stade de France - Saturday 28 October 2023
Over 160 minutes of rugby, you will see the best four teams in the world whittled down to one champion.
In 2019 the bronze final was contested between mighty New Zealand and wonderful Wales before South Africa and England collided in an epic final in Yokohama.
The atmosphere, the intensity, the spectacle, the expectation – rugby occasions don’t get any bigger or more emotional and your place at both games is guaranteed. Paris is a fitting back-drop – it is a city steeped in rugby history and culture and you can guarantee the Stade de France will be at its exhilarating best and you will be there too.
Exclusive England Rugby Travel special event - Quarter-finals
At quarter-final time, our special event programme will be back in south of France to bring fans an unrivalled experience. Whether it’s quality analysis from a former legend, a great story from a past winner or simply the chance to enjoy mingling with fellow fans, this is not to be missed. It will be epic.
Two exclusive England Rugby Travel special events - Semi-finals
Paris will be abuzz with excitement, expectation and atmosphere and our special event programme will only add to the build up. If it’s about bringing the tournament to life, unearthing those anecdotal gems, getting a shirt signed by a rugby great or simply the chance to relax ahead of the big matches, our events make it all possible.
Two exclusive England Rugby Travel special events - Finals
Well, with two events, one on the matchday you are in the right place to get beneath the skin and right to the beating heart of the tournament. Hear how glory is possible, what it means and how the prize is cherished.
Our special event programme is unrivalled for bringing the tournament, its legends and biggest names to life and with refreshments and entertainment, this is the perfect build up to the showpiece finale.
Inevitably, you can dine well on seafood too, in the restaurants laced around the Vieux Port (Old Port) – the thick fish stew that is bouillabaisse originated in the city and is very much a speciality. There are plenty of bars for a drink too – particularly on Place Jean Jaures, where the evening runs on late. Out in the bay, Chateau D'If is just as dramatic and the Cathedral (Cathedrale Sainte-Marie-Majeure) is one of France’s most beautiful.
The seafront is the main focus, of course. The Promenade des Anglais runs alongside the Mediterranean for four miles but the city caters to all sorts. The narrow streets behind Plage des Ponchettes – Rue du Moulin, Rue du Pontin, Rue de l’Abbaye – are filled with bars which deal more in beers than bottles of something vintage. This is also the “old town”, where the Baroque Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate holds pride of position on Place Rossetti, and the Marché Aux Fleurs Cours Saleya (market) sells local produce. From here, it’s a short walk up the Colline du Chateau (Castle Hill), where the remnants of the city’s medieval fortress look down on the beaches.
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.
It has epic churches, great restaurants and – not too far away – lovely beaches. But if quality claret is something which appeals, then Bordeaux can be only, and all, about its most celebrated product. Pass a glass; leave the bottle on the table.
