England Rugby 2015, Tournament Organisers, and Rugby World Cup Limited, Tournament Owners, today announced the full list of Match Venues and published the Match Schedule for Rugby World Cup 2015, hosted in England.
Brighton & Hove has been chosen as a venue for the Rugby World Cup 2015 after the council and Brighton & Hove Albion worked together on the successful bid, which will see the Brighton Community Stadium host two Group B games between South Africa v Asia 1 (Saturday 19th September 2015) and Samoa v Americas 2 (Sunday 20 September).
The 13 Match Venues and Host Cities selected are: Twickenham Stadium (London), Wembley Stadium (London), Olympic Stadium (London), Millennium Stadium (Cardiff), Manchester City Stadium (Manchester), St James’ Park (Newcastle), Elland Road (Leeds), Leicester City Stadium (Leicester), Villa Park (Birmingham), Kingsholm Stadium (Gloucester), Stadiummk (Milton Keynes), Brighton Community Stadium (Brighton) and Sandy Park (Exeter).
Taking the game to ten cities across the country enables England Rugby 2015 to showcase the game to a large audience across the length and breadth of the country. The Match Schedule will see 25 matches played in dedicated Rugby venues, seven in multi-event stadia and 16 in football venues.
