South Africa release powerful video in the fight to host Rugby World Cup 2023

South Africa has backed up their bid to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup with a rousing video showcasing the country and it’s passion and love that exists for the sport. It’s part of a lengthy process that sees them competing with France and Ireland for the tournament.

The 16-month, two phase process comes to a close on 15 November, when World Rugby will announce who won the bid. That will follow an announcement on 31 October that will indicate the Rugby World Cup (Ltd) Board’s recommendation for the host candidate, depending on which country achieved the highest score in the evaluation process.

The assessment has been performed by a team of 10 World Rugby and Rugby World Cup Limited relevant-area managers and independent area experts, working since 1 June 2017.

They have assessed all three bids with input from functional experts. The London-based Sports Consultancy has scrutinised each managers’ evaluation to ensure all candidates have been treated fairly and the criteria have been consistently applied.

Voting, by secret ballot on 15 November, will take the Evaluation Commission’s recommendations into consideration. The bid which receives a simple majority of the 39 available votes will be named as the host for Rugby World Cup 2023.

As well as these videos, an 800 page, 16 chapter bid addressed 300 questions. It included a comprehensive budget and a detailed match-venue file providing exhaustive information on each proposed venue. You can view a summary (80 pages) with the bid book here.

Below is the bid video, plus an impressive stadium recap below that
