A responsible Rugby World Cup

In line with its sustainable development policy, France 2023 wants to organise a Rugby World Cup with a positive impact

A responsible Rugby World Cup

France 2023 and World Rugby have confirmed their common ambition to organise a positive impact competition and have made 4 commitments:

  • Reducing the impact on the environment
  • Acting for a sustainable and circular economy
  • Committing to education, training, and employment
  • Supporting inclusion and accessibility

“France 2023 has given itself a reason to exist: to have a positive impact on rugby, the planet and France in order to deliver a responsible event that meets the challenges of today and tomorrow. The Rugby World Cup 2023 will be more than a sporting event. It will leave a mark”.

Brett Gosper, Chief Executive of World Rugby

Conscious of its responsibility and environmental impact, the Rugby World Cup 2023 will make spectators and fans aware of the importance of waste management in the entertainment areas and in the stadium.

The Rugby World Cup will be environmentally friendly and many workshops in the rugby village will be offered to the general public.

Dedicated offer for people with disabilities

In order to offer better accessibility to all audiences, France 2023 will offer a welcome and support program for people with disabilities (PWD) and people with reduced mobility (PRM).

Depending on availability, each person holding a disability card of more than 80% can reserve a free PRM/DSP seat per match, with or without an accompanying person, up to a maximum of 3 matches*.

The PMR/PSH offer will be aimed at holders of a disability card of more than 80% who have one of the following disabilities: wheelchair users, people with reduced mobility, and people with hearing, visual and mental disabilities.

*See the conditions on the special website.

Make a donation to “Rugby au cœur 2023 ♥”

Rugby au coeur“, chaired by French rugby legend Jean-Pierre Rives, is the Endowment Fund for the Rugby World Cup France 2023.

This cause makes it possible to finance societal projects such as education, health, disability or equal opportunities.

By becoming the Official Charity of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, Rugby au coeur and World Rugby are joining forces to give the initiative an international dimension. All rugby fans will have the opportunity to show their support for the projects.

Getting to the stadium

The stadium of Nice will once again shine thanks to the Rugby World Cup France 2023.

Rugby fans will be able to watch matches from the greatest rugby nations in Nice: England, Wales, Scotland as well as Italy and Japan, quarter-finalists in the last edition. 

The Rugby World Cup 2023 is intended to be a sporting event accessible by soft mobility. To this end, bicycles will be made available free of charge to get to the stadium via a greenway created for the occasion.

Those who are not so keen on two wheels can opt for public transport. Line 3 of the tramway provides a direct link between the city center and the stadium with its dedicated stop “le Stade”.
