‘We are with you all the way’ – that was never more important than at Rugby World Cup 2019.

To make it as easy as possible for fans to simply relax, soak up the tournament and local culture, our ‘Welcome’ events were the perfect way to begin the holiday of a lifetime.

With key dos and don’ts, cultural information and health and safety tips, guests were welcomed by a rugby legend who guided them through an informal look at Japanese laws, customs and traditions.

And with plenty of refreshments to be had, the chance to meet fellow travelling fans and the options of autographs, selfies and a chat with rugby greats, there was no better introduction to an amazing country and a wonderful tournament.
